A few days ago, TBH (The Best Highlights) shared a post that featured some of the basketball world’s best father-son duos. This included LeBron James and Bronny, Dwyane Wade and Zaire, along with Shaquille O’Neal and Shareef. The retired Los Angeles Lakers legend, however, took the banter to another level by sharing the same photo on his Instagram.

Shaq challenged King James and D Wade to a father-son face off

In his IG post, he tagged TBH, asking them to set it up. He even tagged his sons, letting them know he’s ready.


Many people ended up choosing James and Bronny, apologizing to Shaq. Bronny is a top prospect for NBA, and people have often spoken about him playing in the league with his father. Some O’Neal fans remained adamant that the now-49-year-old icon can beat the other’s 1 vs 2.

O’Neal, a four-time NBA Champion, is probably the best center of all time for many fans. He averaged 23.7 points in his career, which started out with the Orlando Magic. O’Neal won the three-peat for the Lakers (2000-2002) alongside late NBA legend Kobe Bryant. Later in his career, he won another title.
