Shaq and Shannon Sharpe's Beef

The issues between Shaq and Shannon Sharpe began earlier this week after Shaq respectfully told NBA MVP Nikola Jokic he didn't deserve the award for the third time, and the award should have gone to Shai Gilgeous-Alexander. On The Nightcap Show featuring Sharpe, Chad Ochocinco and Gilbert Arenas on Thursday (May 9), Sharpe went in on Shaq, a one-time NBA MVP, saying he thought Shaq was envious of Jokic's success.

"It's hard for me to put somebody in the GO.A.T. conversation with one MVP, regular season," Sharpe said. "So we gonna take somebody with one regular season MVP, and put him in front of people that got three, that got four, that got five?"

Shaq first responded on Instagram.

"You took me sticking up for @shai as jealousy??" he wrote. "Shows how smart you are and how you say anything to get clicks. so here’s some click bait for you. if you ain’t ranked in the top ten in your profession , then you can’t speak on Me."

Shaq is no stranger to rap or rap beef. He released four albums in the 1990s. In 2019, he got into a rap battle with NBA player Damian Lillard.
