The legendary center from the NBA revealed his opinion on who he thinks is the league’s best player.

Warriors guard Steph Curry cemented his place among NBA greats after he won his fourth championship and his first Finals MVP award in the Warriors’ NBA Finals victory over the Celtics in June.

Hall of Fame center Shaquille O’Neal says that, despite the prevalence of other superstars in today’s sports, Curry stands head and shoulders above the rest.

In an interview for The Big Podcast, O’Neal proclaimed, “[Steph] Curry is the best player in the world, by far.”

The hostess, Nischelle Turner, disagreed with Shaq, saying that she thought Curry was the best shooter in the world, but not the best player.

You can have a category, but the real ones are recognized by the championships that you have, as Kenny [Smith] would tell you. Steph Curry is the best player in the league. Taking a shot doesn’t phase him. Strong in the face of adversity. The direction he’s taken his career in is good in my opinion. In general, I enjoy stories similar to “Rocky.” I give Steph a lot of credit for becoming the best shooter and one of the best players in the league despite the fact that he wasn’t heavily recruited. I really like that kid,” O’Neal gushed.

In 2022-23, Curry and the Warriors will have plenty of talent returning, making them a legitimate title contender in the Western Conference.

A fifth NBA championship would further cement Curry’s place in NBA history, and it would put him in the same company as Shaq and the other greats who have won championships.

Nobody can beat the best player in the world, O’Neal said.
