Watch: Shaq's son dominates as a high school freshman

Shaquille O'Neal's 6'7" son flashes guard skills as a high school freshman

Shaquille O'Neal's son Shareef looks like his dad, but he's six inches shorter, a hundred pounds lighter and can dribble and shoot.

Shareef is a 6'7" freshman at Windward High School in Los Angeles and, judging from this highlight video (taken at the 2015 Big Cup tournament last week in Houston), is pretty good at basketball.

In the brief 55-second tape, we see young Shareef, a small forward, dribble by defenders, fire beautiful passes, reject a hapless fast-breaker, throw down several impressive dunks and even (gasp) shoot a three, which certainly wasn't Dad's specialty.

We also see Shaq looking impressed and hear him shouting from the stands.

Shareef won't graduate high school until 2018, so there's some time before we have to get to know him.
