Shaquille O'Neal recently sparked a debate about Stephen Curry's place in NBA history after Curry's game-winning three-pointer against the Boston Celtics.

 O'Neal questioned whether Curry should be considered among the greatest basketball players of all time during a post-game discussion on NBA on TNT. He even suggested that Curry might be the best player of all time, but later clarified that he was simply wondering if Curry's accomplishments warranted consideration in the conversation.

O'Neal's comments led to a video supporting Curry's case as the best player ever being shared on an Instagram fan page dedicated to O'Neal.

Despite Curry's significant impact on the game and his exceptional three-point shooting, O'Neal believes that Curry's overall resume falls short of cracking the top five in the conversation of the NBA's best player ever.

Interestingly, O'Neal has also been involved in debates about LeBron James' place in NBA history. While O'Neal has often chosen Michael Jordan as the greatest player, there was a period when he advocated for Curry. 

However, O'Neal has consistently maintained that Jordan is the greatest player in NBA history, followed by Julius Erving.
