Shaq’s Son, Shareef, Will Be Training with Kobe Bryant This Summer (Video)
Shaq‘s 16-year-old son Shareef was doing just fine in his basketball career trajectory, having been courted by many schools and getting national attention for his ability to play small with a 6’9″ frame. Now it looks like he’s going to be even more difficult for opposing players to contend with next year, as he told TMZ in this video that he’s going to be training with Kobe Bryant this summer.
Yikes. That’s great news for Shareef and terrible news for any hapless high schooler that’s tasked with guarding him.
Here’s the video:
I guess Kobe and Shaq were able to put aside their aging feud (which may be resolved these days anyway) for the sake of the kid. That’s pretty heartening, too.
It’s hard to imagine a better coach than the versatile Kobe for anyone trying to step up their game.
