Shaquille O’Neal’s son, Shareef, says he has plans to train with Kobe Bryant, reports TMZ.

Shareef, 16, told the website that he hopes to start training with Bryant this summer. If the duo has the chance to play one-on-one, he looks to defeat the five-time NBA champion.

“If we play one-on-one, I’m gonna try to win,” he said.

Shaquille O’Neal has previously said he wants his son to attend LSU. The younger O’Neal reportedly holds offers from LSU, Baylor, UCLA, USC and Kansas State, according to Scout.com.

O’Neal’s son also said it “would be cool” to see Bryant reunited with his father on television as an analyst.
