Crossroads High School in Santa Monica — once basketball home to Baron Davis and Austin Croshere, plus more celebrities than do cameos on “Drunk History” — is going to have a stacked hoops team in the coming years. They will have LeBron James Jr. and Shaqir O’Neal, the younger son of Shaquille O’Neal, on the court together. Shaq’s older son, Shareef O’Neal, just graduated from there and will play for UCLA starting this season.

If you want to make it a little better, Kobe Bryant has offered to coach up Shaq’s children.

That’s what Shaq’s ex-wife, Shaunie O’Neal, told TMZ Sports when the ambushed her at LAX.

“Kobe always offers ... we’re just so far from each other, but he always offers.”

At some point, they will take Kobe up on this. You know Steve Alford would be good with that.

In the short term, those of us in SoCal may need to drive up and see some Crossroads games in the coming years.
