Best MVP Seasons in NBA history

The 1999-2000 season saw the first time a player was one vote shy of unanimous MVP and that was Shaq, playing for the Lakers at the time. Not only did he lead the league in scoring, FG% and rebounds, he also established himself as an elite defender with 3 BPG, becoming one of the best two-way players of his time.

His glaring weakness was his free throws (only 52%), but leading the league in scoring despite the opposition always looking to send you to the charity stripe is impressive. Shaq’s game contributed to the Lakers’ 67-15 record
