Shaquille O'Neal joined draft prospects Mikal Bridges, Jaren Jackson Jr. and Marvin Begley III to host a day of mentorship for teens in Brooklyn with The Y and provide apparel from JCPenney. O'Neal said the look on the teens' faces reminded him of how he felt when he saw Julius Erving and David Robinson as a child and teen. "I understand the look so I just try to give them the key ingredients to make," O'Neal said. "It's the same thing I did. It ain't no rocket science on how to get here. For me it was, listen to my mom and dad, work hard and believe. That's it…. I followed those three principles and they got me to this point thus far."

Jaren Jackson Jr. joined Shaquille O'Neal and draft prospects Mikal Bridges and Marvin Begley III to host a day of mentorship for teens in Brooklyn with The Y and provide apparel from JCPenney. "It's great, it's really special because that's exactly what I would want if I was in high school," Jackson Jr. said of speaking to the teens. ".... We're still growing just like them, we're learning new things just like them. Instead of us being some executive or something like that, we can relate to them." Jackson Jr. has worked out for the Hawks and Suns and is expected to be selected within the top five picks on Thursday.
