When NBA legend Shaquille O'Neal speaks, basketball fans sit back and listen.

During the latest episode of "The Big Podcast With Shaq," the Hall of Famer was asked if Steph Curry is the best player in the world.

His comments on that subject were saying a lot.

"Yeah, by far," said O'Neill. "Hell yeah... nobody plays that better than Steph Curry.

He is a tough shot-taker, tough shot-maker. I love where he has brought his career."

Talk about high praise for Curry.

Curry has another magical season coming up with the Golden State Warriors.

He averaged 25.5 points, 6.3 assists and 5.2 rebounds per game.

Curry raised his game in the playoffs. He not only captured his fourth championship,

He eventually added "NBA Finals MVP" to his resume.

Barring one injury, Curry should enter the following season as one of the favorites to win the MVP.

Whether or not he is the "best player in the world" is still up for debate.
