NBA 2015 All-Star Games: Shaq’s Real MVP Moment


15-Time All-Star Shaq on his favorite flashback from the 2009 game

“My favorite [All-Star moment] is probably the one here [in Arizona] ’cause it was a weird one. I stayed up all night. I was playing in Phoenix, I was older. Just as I was leaving, my son grabbed my leg and said, “Daddy, can you grab the MVP?” I told him “Yeah.” So when I get there, Kobe kept passing me the ball like the old days and shit felt good. Then I got the MVP [Trophy] and they handed Kobe a trophy. Kobe saw me and gave it to my son. I thought it was a dope moment. My son is a Kobe fan and 6-foot-8 now.”
