As you know, Stephen Curry became the first unanimous MVP in NBA history this season, a decision that drew some criticism from the outside. Those critics have only been fueled by the Warriors‘ collapse from a 3-1 series lead in the NBA Finals against the Cavaliers.
Curry struggled throughout the Finals, something that wasn't an issue for Shaquille O'Neal back in 2000. The big fella owned the Pacers on his way to his first championship and Finals MVP award. That year, he received 120 of 121 first place votes for the league MVP award. The lone vote not given to Shaq was cast for Allen Iverson, who went on to earn the honor the following season.
O'Neal decided to let the world, and Curry, know who the real unanimous MVP is:

Only one problem: that's not how you spell unanimous. Good try though, Shaquille.
