Shaquille O’Neal‘s daughter took Mariah Carey very seriously when she sang, “All I want for Christmas is you.” Taahirah O’Neal is directing that line at a certain NFL-er. But she’s got a bone to pick with Santa Claus about this situation. She posted a throwback to compliment her latest visit to see Mr. Claus, to prove that the big man in the red suit has been letting her down for a while now.

Sir, I asked for @jalenhurts. Where is he?!” she wrote on Instagram. Did she confirm she’s on the nice list though? Perhaps she should’ve asked Shaq-a-Claus instead. After all, his day job is closer to Jalen Hurts, who, by the way, is feeling a little grumpy this holiday after his Eagles lost to the Seahawks.

Taahirah is nothing if not consistent. She’s expressed her not-so-little crush on the Eagles quarterback more than a few times by tagging him here and there.

One of Shaq’s closest friends, part of his entourage, and honorary uncle to Taahirah and her siblings, Derrick Mallet commented the same too. “She’s consistent and not changing for NOBODY,” he wrote. He apparently did a spit-take at her Christmas wish too.

Jalen Hurts has not responded on this occasion or the past ones. Very likely that he will be considering the 7’1″ obstacle in Taahirah’s way.

Shaquille O’Neal is a typical nightmare dad

Remember that awkward galore that was Shaq’s ‘interview’ with Bobbi Althoff? His daughters came up in conversation, particularly, Taahirah. Shaq told Althoff, around the same age as Taahirah and a mom of two, that he has protocols in place to ensure he won’t be having grandkids anytime soon.

No kids for her,” he referred to Taahirah, adding, “Not ever.” The reason: “Because every time her boyfriend comes by, I just go…” Shaq showed his intimidating chest-pumping party trick to demonstrate and says, “And they leave.”

Maybe even Santa couldn’t risk sending Jalen Hurts Tahiraah’s way if the Big Aristotle is there to be every suitor’s nightmare. She can keep trying but good luck to Taahirah getting her Christmas wish fulfilled with a dad like that.

One take at a time

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.
