*Shareef O’Neal, son of NBA superstar Shaquille O’Neal, shared a photo on his Instagram account earlier this week of what looks like a cloud formed in the shape of the number eight. 

The number is significant because it’s one of Kobe Bryant’s famous jersey numbers. O’Neal concluded that the cloud was a sign from the late NBA icon. 

“I can’t believe I saw this today,”  O’Neal, 20, captioned his photo. “It sent chills through my body .. it might be a stretch to some but I see it clear as day .. even the same font.”

“Wow, so amazing #8 WE MISS YOU,” he added.

Number 8 is the very first jersey number Bryant wore as a Los Angeles Laker. He became the only player in the league to have two jersey numbers after the went on to don the number 24. The Lakers retired both numbers following his death earlier this year in a helicopter crash.

One IG user responded to Shareef’s post writing, “That’s definitely him,” and another added, “He’s letting you know he’s ok!”

When Shareef posted the same photograph on Twitter, one user noted that another cloud in the photo appeared to be the number two, which was the number that Bryant’s daughter, Gianna wore. The teenager, along with seven others, also died in the crash in late January in southern California.
