Lakers vs Heat Summer League 2022 Preview
Shareef ONeal, a Los Angeles Lakers prospect, is hoping to follow in the footsteps of his father, Shaquille ONeal, who led the Lakers to three NBA titles in the early 2000s.
Shareef ONeal said on ESPNs Dave McMenamin that his dad, Kobe [Bryant], won championships when he was born, and now it's me getting on the Lakers gear, and it was crazy. I was speechless, kind of.
@Lakers, THANK YOU FOR THIS OPPORTUNITY! pic.twitter.com/z0TeRVVGed
ONeal of Shareef (@SSJreef) on June 24, 2022
ONeal was left undrafted after playing for UCLA and LSU while working for the Lakers. He is not the only player on the Lakers roster that is a big-name basketball team. Scotty Pippen Jr., the son of Scottie Pippen, the Chicago Bulls' son, has also been signed for the Summer League.
Per McMenamin, people think it goes for everyone. I believe everyone who has a name has a target on their back. I believe it is good to go in the gyms and everyone wants to get my best. So, this is a pleasure for me.
In pursuit of pro basketball, Pippen Jr. mentioned that his sons of NBA players fall into a unified group.
I'd say there's a different type of camaraderie for those who played in the NBA when we were little, according to McMenamin. Because going through this whole process since we were kids, there's always a different type of pressure on us, I would say. A different degree of expectation. So I give my hat to all those people, because playing this game when your father is so-and-so is a different type of pressure to play at.
Miami's summer league team includes a prominent player, Nikola Jovic. The 19-year-old prospect isn't to be confused for Nikola Jokic yet, but the Heats first-round pick is looking to make a mark for himself in the NBA.

I think the folks at the center of the issue are still looking for where they are the best, according to Jovic through Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun-Sentinel. Im still trying to find a suitable fit for me. So it will take a while to get started.
Some of the games Ill show what I can do, and theyll know exactly where to start, according to Jovic. So right now, were just experimenting a little bit.
