Shaq won 3 Finals MVPs, 3 All-Star MVPs, 1 regular season MVP award and the Rookie of the Year award. He is the part of the best playoff run in NBA history when the Lakers went 15-1 in the postseason. He started dominating right from his rookie year. His rookie averages were just mind-boggling.

#3 Kareem Abdul-Jabbar - 9 honors

Kareem is also the player with the most points scored in NBA history. He was a scoring machine for both the Bucks and the Lakers.
Kareem has won the most regular season MVPs - 6. He also won 2 Finals MVPs and the Rookie of the Year award. Kareem was a dominant force right from the start of his career and his longevity was also amazing.Modified 21 Dec 2019, 00:20 IST
