Angel Reese was introduced as Shaquille O'Neal's first signing as president of basketball operations by Reebok.
Reebok announced the company's first major NIL agreement with the LSU basketball sensation on Tuesday morning.
Following the news, Reese responded to a Nice Kicks social media post with a photo of herself and O'Neal at an LSU football game.
"BarbieShaq," wrote Reese. "This was the first day I ever met him, and the rest is history!" I can't thank [LSU assistant] Coach Bob Starkey enough for helping to make this happen!!"
O'Neal stated that his first move as head of Reebok "had to be the GOAT." In April, a former LSU icon dubbed Reese the best Tigers athlete ever.
"There is no one making a bigger impact on the game right now than Angel Reese," O'Neal said in a statement.
In an interview with Reebok, Reese called Shaq's rise to president "inspiring" and said she'd like to follow in his footsteps off the court.
She spoke about her relationship with the former NBA player."I love him, and he's been super supportive to me and everything I've done," she remarked.
"Even if I didn't work for Reebok, he'd still be there for me, and our relationship has always been fantastic."
Everything is so much fun, and what player wouldn't want feedback from one of the greatest big men of all time?!"
