Shareef O'Neal—yes, Shaq's son—is a monster.

The 6'8" 15-year-old is a sophomore star at Windward High School in Los Angeles, and he spent this past summer traveling all over the country while playing for the elite AAU team California Supreme.

Ball Is Life captured some footage from a recent tournament in Las Vegas, and while it's not in the tear-the-backboard-down category, it's pretty darn impressive.

Unlike his pops, Shareef is more of a swingman who can handle the ball and shoot from the outside. But he does seem to have his dad's trademark defensive dominance.

The younger O'Neal has already received scholarship offers from USC and UCLA, and he's supposedly already beaten his old man in a game of one-on-one.

Shareef has some monumental shoes to fill—both literally and figuratively—but he's off to a flying start.
