Shaquille O'Neal's daughter Amirah commits to LSU's basketball program alongside brother Shareef, who recently transferred from UCLA.
Three decades after Shaquille O'Neal became one of the best basketball players to become a part of Louisiana State University's program, two of his children are headed the same direction. His eldest son Shareef announced his transfer to LSU from UCLA, and now his daughter Amirah announced her commitment to the school as well.
Amirah, a 6-foot-2 star at Crossroads High School in Santa Monica, California, averages 17.2 points per game. She was part of the All-Division 3 Second Team selection by Max Preps when she was a junior, and she is now ready to take her career to the next level by joining the LSU tigers.
O'Neal acknowledged that while the scariest thing for a person her age is the jump from high school to college, she acknowledged that she's ready to take the challenge. Ultimately, she revealed on Instagram that she is excited to spend the next four years as a Tiger.
"I never imagined myself saying this, but I am excited to say that I have decided to commit to being a student athlete at LSU alongside my brother [Shareef]."
Shareef, a 6-foot-9 forward, was a top-40 prospect out of high school before committing to UCLA. Unfortunately, a heart problem that required surgery had him sit out his entire freshman year season. This year, he did not get to play as much as well, appearing in only 13 games and averaging 2.2 points and 2.9 rebounds before deciding to transfer.
Although not a lot of people know that Shaq is actually a DJ, his kitchen stint is a far cry compared to the massive festivals he's played at using the stage name "DJ Diesel."
While the two O'Neal siblings are ready for their next adventure, they have been staying at home with their dad Shaquille amid the COVID-19 quarantine measures put in place. To keep them entertained, the former NBA star hilariously entertained his children by hosting a "kitchen party."

Although not a lot of people know that Shaq is actually a DJ, his kitchen stint is a far cry compared to the massive festivals he's played at using the stage name "DJ Diesel." He's played the likes of Lollapalooza and Tomorrowland and toured countries like the Bahamas, Belgium, and China for music.
