Shareef O’Neal has some biiig shoes to fill. His dad, the 7-foot-1 Shaquille O’Neal, is one of most decorated centers in basketball history. During his long and illustrious NBA career, Shaq (who, incidentally, wears size 22 shoes) won four NBA championships, was a 15-time NBA All-Star, and was named both Most Valuable Player (2000) and Rookie of the Year (1993).
But luckily for the younger O’Neal, it seems the apple hasn’t fallen far from the tree.
In a highlight reel posted on YouTube Tuesday, watch Shareef -- a 6’8” freshman at Windward High School in Los Angeles -- show off his skills on a basketball court, dribbling past defenders, scoring dunks and even shooting a 3-pointer.
The footage is said to have been taken at the 2015 Big Cup tournament, which took place earlier this month in Houston, Texas.
A proud Shaq is seen in the video whooping and clapping for his son from the stands.
This is certainly a ball player to keep an eye on in the coming years.
