WATCH: Shaquille O’Neal sounds off on Mavs star Luka Doncic’s All-NBA selection
Dallas Mavericks superstar Luka Doncic was just named as part of the All-NBA First Team and deservedly so. For his part, however, Hall of Fame big man and NBA on TNT host Shaquille O’Neal does not exactly agree with the selection of the Mavericks guard.

Shaq actually brings up a fair argument here. Even his co-hosts on the program appeared to be at a loss for words in trying to determine who had a better season between Luka Doncic and Damian Lillard. In the end, they agreed that the vote could have gone either way and that they wouldn’t have too many qualms about it. Except for Shaq, that is.
For what it’s worth, Lillard was named in the All-NBA second team. The Blazers star had a tremendous campaign with the Blazers and there’s no denying that he emerged as one of the top guards in the entire league this season. Then again, the same can be said about Luka Doncic with the Mavs.
If it were up to you, who’d get your nod at the point guard spot in the All-NBA team this season? Luka Doncic? Damian Lillard? Or maybe someone else? I hear an old guy from the Phoenix Suns is having quite a campaign as well.
