The NBA season hasn't even reached the All-Star break, yet talk of who is the league's Most Valuable Player is already on the minds of the media, fans, players, twitterers and players who twitter alike.

Is it Dwayne Wade and his 28.8 points per game and 7.3 assists per game that has a young Miami Heat team in playoff contention? What about GQ cover boy LeBron James whose Cleveland Cavs currently have the best record in the East? Or maybe it's that guy who plays down at the Staples Center, you know the one who grabbed MVP last year and currently is scoring 27 a night for the team with the best record in the league.

Earlier today, Shaquille O'Neal weighed in on the debate via Twitter. Yes, Shaq is on Twitter. In case you weren't sure if it was really him or not, his username is THE_REAL_SHAQ just to avoid the confusion that occurred in November.

Shaq told his 30,000+ followers that he is endorsing a former teammate for MVP. Surprisingly it wasn't the former teammate who carried his 300 pound ass to a championship in Miami, but the former teammate who would allegedly know the taste of Shaq's ass - Kobe Bryant.
