Kobe Bryant inspired so many people. Shaquille O’Neal's son, Shareef O’Neal is one of them. The young college basketball player is set to pay tribute to his father and the late-great NBA player.
According to sources, the LSU forward will wear No. 32 during his sophomore year of college. But why, 32 you may ask? Well, because it’s the sum of 24 and 8, the numbers Bryant wore in the NBA. No. 32 is also the number his father O’Neal wore during his time in the NBA as well. Safe to stay, the number has double meaning for the 20-year-old.
In related news, there's not a day that Shareef O’Neal doesn't think or shows his love to Kobe Bryant. His social media is filled with Kobe memorabilia. It's quite amazing!
