Shaquille O’Neal remains firm in his stance. TMZ Sports recently caught up with the 4-time NBA champion, shortly after his on-air interaction with this year’s NBA MVP, Nikola Jokic. Shaq shows no signs of backing down even in the slightest.

“Let me say something to all the people that are not smart enough to comprehend what I say,” O’Neal said. “Never said I didn’t like Joker, never said anything bad about the Joker.

“Joker is the best big man in a long time. I just said that I thought Shai Gilgeous-Alexander should’ve gotten the MVP.”

Some took issue with Shaq’s stance, criticizing him for telling Jokic he believed SGA was this season’s most valuable player. But O’Neal stands by his choice.

“The reason why I did it on the show’s because you know when you say something – you get all these people involved – they turn around like ‘Shaq doesn’t like Joker.’

“That’s why I told Joker and said, ‘Hey, man-to-man, brother, you know I love you but somebody else should have got it’ and that’s what real men do.”
