Robert Horry doubts Shareef O’Neal has what it takes to make it big in the NBA

Not drafted, Shareef O’Neal still went through an interesting pre-draft process, which resulted in him being called up by the Lakers for the Summer Leagues. But he did not really shine there and in any case did not show enough to obtain an invitation for an NBA training camp with 4.7 points at 47.8% and 3.7 rebounds in 10.9 minutes.

Finally it is in the G-League that he will evolve next season, and more precisely with the Ignite team, which normally trains talents for the NBA. It will not be easy for him to find a place in the NBA, and Robert HorryShaq’s former teammate, isn’t sure he has what it takes to make it big in the world’s biggest league.

I picked up my phone and was about to call Shaq and say, ‘Yo man, you gotta tell your son he can’t play on his damn name O’Neal. He has to go out there and play,” Robert Horry said on his Big Shot Bob podcast. “He has to make an effort! You know, Shareef is such a nice kid, I don’t know if he has that dog in him to go out there and grab whatever he wants.

This season with the Ignite team could be decisive for Shareef.
