Shaq’s 6-foot-8 son, Shareef O’Neal is ballin’ like his daddy.
In a newly-released highlight reel, Shareef’s basketball skills are on full display, from handle, to outside shooting, to assists, to steals, to dunks. The Windward High School small forward was captured flexing on the court at the 2015 Big Cup Tournament in Houston last week as his Magic Hall Of Famer father looked on.
While Shareef only averaged nearly four points and three rebounds in his inaugural season, the 55-second clip reveals more than enough potential for his game to grow. It has already been shared by ESPN and Sports Illustrated, who predict that “Medium Diesel” will become a notable talent in the game.
Shareef now joins the conversation with LeBron James Jr., who at nine years old, is already being eyed by colleges. Pretty exciting stuff for the future of the NBA.
