Kobe Bryant reached out to Shaq’s son this morning

Personal stories are coming out from players, coaches, media, friends, family and so many more about their experiences with Kobe Bryant. Hours after news broke that we lost Kobe to a helicopter crash on Sunday, Shaq’s son Shareef O’Neal posted a screenshot to his Twitter page of a conversation he had with Kobe this morning.

On Wednesday, Shareef O’Neal announced he will transfer from UCLA. He sat out all of last year with a heart issue that required open heart surgery. In his redshirt freshman season, he is averaging 10 minutes per game off the bench for the Bruins.

Shaquille O’Neal posted two messages to his Twitter page on Sunday about Kobe Bryant.

RIP Black Mamba.
