Shea Brandon Seals (born August 26, 1975, in Tulsa, Oklahoma) is a retired American professional basketball player. He played in four games with the Los Angeles Lakers during the 1997–98 NBA season. He was listed as 6'5" (1.96 m) 210 lb (95 kg) guard. He is currently the men's basketball team manager and director of player development at the University of Tulsa.[1]

Seals, who played collegiately for the Tulsa Golden Hurricane men's basketball team and is still their all-time career scoring leader,[1] also played in the ABA with the Indiana Legends and the Kansas City Knights, in the NBDL with the Mobile Revelers, and professionally in France with Villeurbanne and Chalon-sur-Saône. The Tulsa Golden Hurricane have retired Seals' number (#21).[1] He served eight years[1] as the head basketball coach at Booker T. Washington High School[2] in Tulsa, Oklahoma.

He is probably best remembered for his performance against Dream Team III on July 6, 1996, this being Dream Team III's first exhibition game prior to the 1996 Summer Olympics in Atlanta (where they won the Gold). He scored 20 points, leading all players on both squads, for his Collegiate All-Star team. Despite his amazing game which helped the College Stars build a 17-point lead at the half, Dream Team III managed to win 96-90.[3]
