It’s a lesson certain NBA legends have learned the hard way – go after an O’Neal and you’ll get burned. Shaquille O’Neal’s kids are as ruthless as their dad was on the court. His eldest daughter dusted off a troll cleanly without letting it ruin a fun dad-daughter date. Nor did it pit her and her siblings against each other.

Taahirah O’Neal shared an interaction with a troll on her Instagram Stories to make it clear there’s no sibling animosity. This commenter seemed to think she was monopolizing Shaq away from his other children by unnecessarily commenting, “Kinda weird how you be acting as if you are your dads ONLY daughter heck his only child especially when he has FIVE others.” It ended with a couple of laughing emojis which do not make this lighthearted in the least.

In accordance with the family tradition of silencing, Taahirah responded, “My siblings and I just laughed at you in our family group chat loser,” with a more accurate usage of the laughing emoji and a well-deserved eye-roll.

She shared the screengrab with a warning to anyone who would take on any of Shaq’s six kids. “I’m gonna keep it cute because I’m grown but… don’t try me.” The classiness is enhanced with the angel emoji. Because that’s what Taahirah is, an angel until you get on her bad side.

Once that was tackled, Taahirah followed it with, “Now back to our regularly scheduled program.” That was a sing-along in the car with her dad. That is the kind of O’Neal family content we love.

It’s Dad’s Day Out for Shaquille O’Neal

While his four youngest kids reside in Texas, Myles O’Neal resides in California and travels with Shaq to music festivals. Taahirah has moved closer to her dad. The former Houston resident relocated to Atlanta, where Shaq’s TNT job is based. Big Aristotle has had a pep in his step ever since. Literally. Taahirah gave a tiny glimpse of Shaq doing the Cha-Cha backstage at TNT.

Taahirah has accompanied him to nearly every TNT broadcast (she got to fawn over WNBA champ Candace Parker) and even The Big Podcast recordings. She shared a series of posts from her broadcast escapades. She may have teased her dad’s gig, revealing she accompanied him to 105.3 THE BEAT and is just hanging out with Shaq.

That seemed to have triggered someone into commenting that and Taahirah clapped back. She may not like sports but she has that Diesel ruthlessness.

I was 7 when I saw 'Space Jam' but didn't know till the third rewatch the lead actor is actually a living basketball legend. It was while studying journalism that my friend would go on about the Warriors from Golden State. Keen on athletes' personas outside their arenas, it was Stephen Curry's confidence and philanthropy that drew me to follow the news on NBA pros and explore sports media.
