Steve Nash’s interview with the NBA on TNT crew was nothing less than hilarious as it featured Shaq taking a playful jab at Steve Nash’s MVP trophy back in 2005 and 2006.

NBA on TNT fans expect nothing less from Shaq Diesel as it was inevitable that Shaq would bring up the fact that he got snubbed for MVP in 2005 and 2006. Shaq asked Steve Nash to show him “one of the MVP trophies you stole from me.”
This prompted the 2x MVP to fire back with, “It’s hard to give you an MVP since you couldn’t make a free throw down the stretch.”
