Shareef O’Neal, high school basketball star and son of Shaquille O’Neal, committed Wednesday to play collegiately for Arizona.
So I did what any self-respecting college hoops fan does when a major recruit announces his college decision: obsessively lurked through his Twitter timeline. (Yup, sports makes us all do weird things from time to time. Go sports!)
Mild self-loathing soon gave way to a serious ‘Woah, dude’ moment. Get this: Shaq’s son and Manute Bol’s son are now wrecking shop together in the world of elite amateur basketball. Better yet, they’re totally friends.
