Shaquille O’Neal joked with his son Shareef (currently playing at Louisiana State University) after he hinted on social media about waiting for singer Rihanna.
Most parents might be puzzled at the prospect of their 21-year-old son trying to get the attention of a 33-year-old celebrity like Rihanna.
However, Shaquille presumably knows his son well enough to offer his joking comments.
Shaq has kept busy since his retirement from the NBA. In addition to acting as a commentator on NBA telecasts for TNT, he remains a popular choice for advertisers to pitch their products.
“She doesn’t want you, she wants me, I’m sexier,” Shaq wrote on Instagram, following Shareef’s post.
