Last night, Shaquielle O’Neal hosted the NBA Awards Show which celebrated the best players from the 2018-19 season. Shaq came out performing a remix to “Stir Fry” with an NBA slant. He then made fun of his good friend Charles Barkley, who was sitting in the crowd, and then wowed the crowd with a burn of Lonzo and Lavar Ball over the trade that Lakers made with the Pelicans.

In the night’s most anticipated race, Milwaukee Bucks star, Giannis Antetokounpo, won the award for Most Valuable Player (MVP). He beat out James Harden from the Houston Rockets and Paul George from the Oklahoma City Thunder. Giannis collected 78 first-place votes to Harden’s 23.
