Shaquille O’Neal, the son of Hall of Fame Shaquille O’Neal, has been trained in the Miami Heat of the Washington Wizards and will eventually be active in the Los Angeles Lakers. At the age of 22, he was one of the prospects who chose to test the pre-draft process and participated. Elite camp The G League held in Chicago last month
In addition, O’Neill was transferred from the University of California, Los Angeles to Louisiana State University in Los Angeles prior to the 2020-21 campaign. But he missed much of his last two seasons due to his leg injury. But his foot problems were not his main obstacle as an athlete. Eventually, Sharif underwent heart surgery in 2018 after the university’s medical staff noticed heart irregularities when they arrived on campus as freshmen.
“I didn’t think I could practice the NBA. I was able to improve this year and think” I want to go to the NBA. ” I had a dream of going to high school, but the surgery didn’t really bother me about basketball. I just wanted to be healthy. “
During training with Wizards, Sharif measured 2.08 meters. This is an inch higher than it was listed at the university last year. Therefore, it can be concluded that he is not as tall as his father at 2.16m, but not too far away.
Shakir, on the other hand, has already shown that his son does not have the same playing traits as a dominant and strong center, as he did in the 2000s. This is because for the legendary Lakers player, he compared him to the next style. Giannis Antetokounmpo, but there is a difference: pitch.
Before Shaquille O’Neal had the opportunity to train at the Lakers that made history, his son Shaquille returned to the bliss of being healthy and having the opportunity to practice in the franchise was of great significance to his family.
“If I can play sports again and be healthy, I’m motivated. If I take off my shirt and look at the scars every day, I’m motivated. I basically grew up in that field. When I was born, my dad and Kobe Bryant were the champions. Kobe was obviously like a mentor to me in addition to my dad. So I’ve been to this gym since I was born and the back of my hand I know a place like that, “said O’Neill.
