Anyone from Shaquille O'Neal's gene pool already has a distinct advantage on their route to the NBA.
And while Shaq's and his son's games are rather different—Shareef is a nimble 6'8" forward who has handles, shoots threes, and, yes, makes free throws—there's still a lot the Big Aristotle can offer his offspring as far as improving his skills goes.
Recently, Shaq sacrificed his body to teach his blood how to dunk on ginormous people.
Though he's about to embark on just his junior season of high school, Shareef O'Neal already knows what it feels like to dunk on a Hall of Famer and four-time NBA champion. How many two-years-away college prospects can say that?
Of course, Shaq didn't risk getting truly dunked on by actually attempting to block Shareef's shot.
If he had, he might have ended up learning how Chris Dudley felt back in 1999.
