Everyone is excited to see how good LeBron James' son LeBron James Jr. is going to turn out to be. But because he's still just in grade school, we're going to have to wait awhile to see how he develops.

In the meantime, we should probably keep a closer eye on Shaquille O'Neal's son Shareef. He's a 6-foot-8 forward who currently attends Windward High School in Los Angeles, Calif. And while his numbers during his freshman year weren't great—he only averaged about four points and three rebounds per game—he looks like he's got plenty of potential in the clip above. He appears to be more versatile than his dad ever was and is shown both shooting and passing the ball effectively.

Thing is, the clip is less than a minute long, so there aren't too many highlights here. And like we said, Shareef doesn't have the stats to warrant too much excitement just yet. But he's obviously got some game. And who knows? He might grow another inch (or six!) over the next few years. So keep him on your radar.
