Shareef O'Neal LeBron James

LeBron James wrote an uplifting IG post for Shaquille O’Neal‘s 18-year-old son Shareef O’Neal who failed to make the McDonald’s All-American team.

Tucson.com reports that Shareef was left off Tuesday’s roster because he’s simply not good enough.

“O’Neal is considered a borderline five-star prospect (24/7 ranks him as a four-star prospect while ESPN has him as a five-star),” the newspaper noted.

Shareef tried to remain upbeat in a tweet on Tuesday.

“Everything can’t go perfect ! I just gotta move on.. this hurt me but it ain’t stopping me #SAIYANMOVEMENTACTIVATED,” he tweeted.

On Wednesday, LeBron took to Instagram.com to keep the young man motivated as he faces an uphill battle against highly-recruited players such as Manute Bol‘s son, Bol Bol.

“Even though we all know you should have made that McDonalds game use it as motivation to prove not to those who didn’t vote you in, not to those who is actually in the game,” LeBron wrote.

The father-of-3 added: “Keep grinding, studying and working daily! The light is always brighter at the end of the tunnel.”

Shareef has reportedly committed to the Arizona Wildcats despite an FBI investigating of the school for multiple recruiting violations.

  • CaramelDrop

    Shaun is has a cast iron womb all those O’Neal kids are ‘bigguns. Seems well rounded by the post….would’ve assumed kids growing up with athlete money to have a entitled attitude like Diddys boys.
    ?? Shaunie and Shaq, good job!

  • SoulfulLove

    Wait Manute named his son Bol Bol ?

  • MissHarlem

    I watched a few episodes of her show with the children and they all seem well rounded considering. His tweet is what I expected. He seems like a good child on the show. Good luck young man!

  • NY_Chick

    6 total. They each had a kid from a previous relationship.

    She had 4 kids with Shaq. Those had to be some BIG babies. I cant imagine that was natural childbirth for all 4 of them!

  • EveryoneIsEntitledToMyOpinion

    Sons of superstar athletes rarely live up to their fathers level of talent and hype. Its usually the average players who produce stars and superstars. He could always get a degree and work a regular job.

  • AnotherBlackGirl

  • bella28498 .

    Shaq son is gonna have it hard because most likely he wasn’t picked because they may have given the spot to a kid who actually need it. This boy parents are multi millionaires.

  • HalleMerry

    Ken Griffey Sr. and Jr.

  • Allergic2dumbstuff

    Me too! I absolutely love this site. I come for Ms. Sandra’s posts. She’s not a copy n paste blogger. But, I stay for the comments.

    Sharee is actually a nice young kid. We traded funny tweets briefly on twitter back when he was 16.. I told him he better commitment to Kentucky when it’s time to go to college and he responded with a laugh lol.. 2 yrs later he didn’t choose Kentucky haaa. But I wish him the best.

    But I have no doubt if he chose a bigger school he would have became an McDonald all American automatically.

  • MythCalledLove

    I’ve know a few who were not picked and ended up in the NBA and a few that played and career was short or they never made it to the NBA. This is high school it’s just for show. It’s never fair when they are compared to their father.

  • chelle

    yea but he has worked hard, rather his parents are rich or not he has put the work in and not sat around like a spoiled rich kid waiting for everything to be handed to him..he put the work in..just like people were upset when Diddy son got the scholarship..that boy put the work in and didn’t sit back and expect rich daddy to make calls for him..these kids work hard and just because they have rich parents should not take away from what they have earned…JS

  • BlahBlahBlah

    NBA since it was about LBJ and Shaq.

  • BlahBlahBlah

    he got some hops, star tho.. nah.

  • LOVE ALWAYS

    Yes indeed……… ???
