Shaq Considers MVP Award Tainted

Often, Steve Nash is sainted for his two MVP seasons, but Shaquille O’Neal considers them to be “tainted.” After Miami’s loss in Dallas on Thursday, O’Neal was engaged in an MVP discussion as it related to the Mavericks’ Dirk Nowitzki. O’Neal questioned how the media picks MVPs and said the award has been “tainted” the past two seasons. O’Neal was the runner-up for Nash’s first MVP in 2005.
