Shaq Presents Daughter Me’Arah With 2024 McDonald’s All-American Jersey

Shaquille O’Neal’s daughter, Me’Arah, is a 2024 McDonald’s All-American who has recently committed to playing for the University of Florida. On a recent NBA on TNT broadcast, the proud father presented his daughter with the McDonald’s All-American jersey emblazoned with No. 24.

Before showing her the uniform, the NBA Hall of Famer said, “First of all, I just wanted to say I’m so proud of you, and I love you. I wanted to present you with this,” as Adam Lefkoe and fellow former NBA players turned-commentators, Kenny Smith, and Charles Barkley watched. When Shaq asked Me’Arah if she could beat Smith in a 3-point shootout, she immediately said yes and challenged anyone to compete. As Smith tries to give her her props and the other hosts are talking, Me’Arah is given a basketball. She goes to the 3-point line on the basketball court in the studio and proceeds to hit a 3-pointer.

According to The Spun, Me’Arah is Shaq’s youngest daughter and fourth offspring to follow in the footsteps of the Los Angeles Lakers legend.

Me’Arah’s oldest brother, Shareef, played at Shaq’s alma mater, LSU (Louisiana State University) and UCLA (The University of California, Los Angeles). Shaqir is currently enrolled and playing at TSU (Texas Southern University), and her older sister, Amirah, also played for LSU and TSU.

The McDonald’s All-American game will take place on April 2 at the Toyota Center in her hometown of Houston. She is currently a student-athlete at Houston (Tex.) Episcopal High School. She is ranked as the No. 33 overall recruit in the class of 2024, according to the HoopGurlz Recruiting Rankings.

Me’Arah lives with her mother, Shaunie Henderson (executive producer of Basketball Wives).
