Despite his genes, Shareef O'Neal is a long shot to make the Lakers roster. The 6'10" big man, who played for the UCLA Bruins and then his father's alma mater, LSU, is currently playing for the Lakers on their summer league team. The Lakers kicked off their summer slate with their first game in the California Classic on Saturday.
