It pays to have the genes of an all-star NBA athlete. This is exactly what a video produced by Ryan Currie Productions demonstrated, showcasing the basketball skills of the kids of Shaquille O’Neal and Jason Williams.

In the video, Shareef and Shaqir O’Neal are shown playing with Jaxon Williams and four-star Nassir Little and Ronaldo Segu. The 16-year old Shareef has already been entertaining offers from USC, UCLA, Kansas State, and his father’s alma mater, LSU.
Younger brother, Shaqir obviously has some moves as well, who demonstrated his impressive ball-handling and mid-range game. The thirteen-year-old also shared another video via Instagram to display his ability to efficiently control the ball with either hand.
Jaxon, who is the splitting image of his dad, looked to have the same footwork and ball-work, even finishing just like White Chocolate, Sr. The video below looks like a highlight reel of a young Jason Williams, but make no mistake that really is White Chocolate, Jr.
At this point, though, all eyes should probably be focused on the older Shareef, who as a member of class 2018, will soon be taking his game to the next level. Standing 6’9” (for now), his inside and outside game have been nothing less than promising, and he is obviously continuously improving his game.
“My game is coming along,” O’Neal said. “I’m playing hard and practicing every day. I just try and do what I do. I’m not just trying to score; I want to play all around with rebounding, passing and defense.” said O’Neal in an interview with the press.
So it comes to no surprise that four teams are already presenting offers to the young basketball player, and it will not be surprising if he receives other offers in the future. O’Neal is actually keen on hearing from other teams, as well.
“I like Arizona, but I haven’t been offered by them. I just recently got a letter from them, though,” shared the athlete. “I’d like to hear from Arizona, Duke, Kentucky and all the top schools.”
And if you’re not convinced that Shareef’s got skills, then check out his post below.
Shaquille O’Neal and Jason Williams must be two proud papas.
