Shaquille O’Neal Connection Powers 21YO LSU “GOAT” Angel Reese to Monumental Accomplishment

Angel Reese adds one more evidence for why she’s Louisiana State University’s very own GOAT. Her combined accomplishments before she’s even graduated college has earned her a coveted honor.

Other than making LSU the no.1 program in the country, Reese enters this list thanks to her NIL deals. The biggest one is of course the partnership with Reebok under its new leadership, Shaquille O’Neal and Allen Iverson.

While Reese’s first championship run had a fair bit of controversy, she channeled another great from the Tigers history, Shaq, to be her authentic self.

That same alum was in her corner from the get-go. They’ve also developed an honorary uncle-niece relationship.




In October, Shaq marked his big return to Reebok as the president of the basketball division with The Answer as his Veep. Within days, both hinted their first order of business should be making a splash with the “GOAT.”

Their first appointment was revealed to be Angel Reese fresh off her first championship. The details and the value of the partnership between Reebok and Reese aren’t public but it made her a shoo-in for the BE list.
