Video: Shaquille O’Neal’s son, Shareef O’Neal, hands his new Jordan’s to young fan
Shareef O’Neal, son of NBA Hall-of-Famer and Los Angeles Lakers legend Shaquille O’Neal, may only be 17 years old, but he’s already acting like a superstar just like his larger-than-life dad.
The high school standout was recently spotted handing out a pair of game-worn Jordan’s – Jordan’s that were recently released that very same day – to a lucky young fan after one of his high school games at the Hoophall West tournament over the weekend.

Shaq was famously a man of the people, and it seems as if that trait has successfully been passed down to his son. It seems weird for a teenager to have fans eager to have his game-worn sneakers, but these are times we live in nowadays. Plus, they’re Jordan’s, so it’d be crazy to pass those up.
The lucky fan was caught off-guard by the series of events. He could only remark that it was “surprising” to go home with those game-worn Jordans given by the scion of Superman himself.
Shareef looks set to go to college next season and is currently committed to the University of Arizona. After that next step, it might not be too long until he’s handing out his game-worn shoes to fans during an actual NBA game.
