He's going to play college ball for 2018-19, so I'm going suggest we all wait quite a while before hyperventilating about his prospects as a Laker stud. Nice family line.

Shareef O'Neal, Shaq's son, commits to Arizona Wildcats



Shareef O'Neal, son of NBA legend Shaquille O'Neal, has commited to play basketball at Arizona. USA TODAY Sports


Four-star Southern California 2018 power forward Shareef O'Neal has committed to the Arizona Wildcats, according to an early-morning tweet from his travel club.

O'Neal, the son of former NBA star Shaquille O'Neal, retweeted a congratulations for the decision by his California Supreme team that was posted at 1:44 a.m. Wednesday.

He had also been considering USC, UCLA, Kentucky and his father's former school, LSU, before it fired coach Johnny Jones.

"My father never said you should do this, you should do that. So I'm gonna let him make his decision," Shaq told ESPN in January. "LSU, Kentucky, Arizona. He's getting a lot of letters. A couple of weeks ago, he got his book with all his letters, I got my book with all my letters. It's a great feeling. But I'm gonna let him make the final decision."

O'Neal has a different game than his physically powerful father: He's a 6-foot-9, 200-pound forward who can play facing the basket. He told the Star in Las Vegas last July that Shaq called him a "stretch four or five."

Shareef and Shaquille visited Arizona for the Wildcats' Nov. 18 game with Sacred Heart last season. He said in July he wanted to pay attention to how the Wildcats play, and was apparently impressed.

“I’ve been to Arizona for an unofficial visit and the campus was great, the coaches treated us like family,” O’Neal told Rivals recently. “I know they let their bigs shoot and play the perimeter and that’s the kind of thing I like."


The Cal Supreme team has many ties to the Wildcats. Former UA standout Miles Simon has coached for them, while current guard Parker Jackson-Cartwright played for the club as has incoming UA freshman DeAndre Ayton.

O'Neal also plays during the school year with incoming UA forward Ira Lee at Crossroads School of Santa Monica, Calif., and told the Star he is "like a cousin" of former UA walk-on Quentin Crawford, whose father has been Shaq’s bodyguard and longtime close friend.

O'Neal becomes the Wildcats' second commitment from the class of 2018, after Emmanuel Akot committed last month. Arizona is also still recruiting for the class of 2017, with at least one spot still available.

Shaq was a different type of skinny. There's skinny with a little bit of meat, muscle potential, and some weight in the legs --- and then there's all bones, near Brandon Ingram skinny... Shareef is close to the 'too skinny' variety
Brandon Ingram's dad is a big, thick dude as well..

If Shaq's kid pans out, it'll be the first time an elite NBA star produced a prodigy. Usually, it's the mediocre players who have children that surpass their NBA careers.

Currently, who's the best ever to have a NBA kid? Sabonis? Oh wait, Rick Barry?

It would have to be Rick Barry with Brent but he wasn't a prodigy.

It rarely happens in sports bloodlines.

As much as I hate to admit it LeBron could very well do it.

Good question. You asked "who's the best ever?", not NBA ever. Best ever?
That would be Mr. Calvin Hill, father of NBA legend Grant Hill. Calvin was the first Dallas Cowboy to rush for 1000 yards. He was the first IVY League player to be drafted in the first round...and on, and on. Grant, his boy, was a stud, had ankle injuries for awhile, got healthy again, and dominated until he retired.

Ok, now that I've gotten that out of the way. Rick Barry would be spot on.

Del Curry.


I think he meant the other way around.
But if he didn't, how could you forget Joe "Jellybean" Bryant?

Tim Hardaway; if Jr. becomes an all-star at some point in his career. I don't think Dell ever made an all-star team. (Made sixth man in 1994).

I think he meant BOTH the father and the son being elite players.

Actually, I didn't mean both. I used the word prodigy loosely. Frankly, I think anybody who makes it to the NBA is gifted. In some rare cases, just lucky. Millions want to go pro, but the NBA membership is only just over 300.

Good one, forgot about him. But Shaq will definitely be the best player so far to produce a NBA player.

Think about it... Jordan, Magic, Kobe, Bird, Hakeem, Kareem, Wilt. They usually don't produce NBA players because they were so dedicated and so great, that it was probably overwhelming for their kids. But think about Shaq! I think it's very apropos that of all the all time greats, he did it, and I think the reason is because of his goofy, happy go lucky attitude. Shaq probably never pressured his kids at all, and goofed around with them all the time. I think it kinda makes sense.

BTW, in Kobe's case, he just can't get a boy. LOL!
