I bet the Dallas Mavericks end up signing Jermaine O'Neal or Emeka Okafor at some point this season. They could use the frontcourt depth.
The great Glenn Frey of The Eagles is here rockin out to @bobseger at MSG. Jim Dolan may be somewhere contemplating Okafor.
El siguiente paso era lógico, los Mavs, a por O'Neal u Okafor como pívot suplente. No tienen nada ahora ahí
On the bright side, there are 2 potential franchise cornerstone centers in the 2015 NBA draft: Duke's Jahlil Okafor & Kentucky's Karl Towns.
Kevin Ollie says Brimah needs to get stronger & be smarter but says Okafor didn't dominate him going to basket. Said Brimah will be 'great'
Coach K on Okafor: 'He's rare, he's a special kid. He'll be a great pro&hopefully he'll be a great college player for the rest of the year.'
'We won, I wasn't thinking about individual battles.' Okafor on Brimah
Corrected stats: Okafor 12 & 8, Jones 21 pts, 6 rebs, 3 assts, Jefferson 11 pts & 13 rebs
Final: No. 2 Duke 66-UConn 56 Tyus Jones 21 pts, 5 rebs, 3 assts Okafor 12 & 10
Another beauty of a one-handed pass over the top from Okafor.
Congrats to everyone who is just realizing Jahlil Okafor is a pro after seeing the one-handed pass. Twitter is the worst sometimes
The question won't be whether or not to take Okafor at No. 1, but who to take at 2, 3, 4, etc. Depends on need - Towns, Mudiay, WCS, etc.
Serious question: Do you even really need to scout Okafor?
I don't believe Jahlil's Okafor's passing will ever get old.
That one-handed pass by Okafor to Jones for the 3 shows what a great distributor he is.
Jahlil Okafor is a hell of a passer
Okafor just spun on Phillip Nolan baseline and banged it. That was nice. Duke now up 10
Does this mean Phil's not scouting Jahlil Okafor in his backyard?
Let's see if we can't get Brimah vs. Okafor to open the second half, huh? UConn's projected 2016 top-20 pick has played all of 48 seconds
Okafor is an underrated passer.
Jahlil Okafor may foul out every big UConn has at its disposal before this thing is over.
You know UConn is in foul trouble when Rakim Lubin checks in to try and deal with Okafor. Phillip Nolan joins Amida Brimah with two PFs
You know those big guys who have trouble catching ball, take forever to gather, and have awkward footwork? Jahlil Okafor's the opposite.
Okafor is a man. like, already a man
90 seconds in and Okafor and Brimah both have a foul and Brimah is on the bench. Not looking good for that early matchup between the 2.
PSA: Brimah vs Okafor on ESPN.
If players keep moving and signing and re-signing the Knicks best chance in free agency might be Jahlil Okafor in 5 years.
NBA scout says UConn's Amida Brimah has a 'great opportunity' tonight against Jahlil Okafor in front of 39 NBA personnel.
I hope Phil can stop tweeting long enough to make the six mile drive from MSG to East Rutherford to see Duke's Jahlil Okafor.
I'm told 25 NBA teams will be repped at tomorrow's Duke/UConn game featuring the Jahlil Okafor/Amida Brimah matchup.
Good news for the Knicks; Duke's Jahlil Okafor had 25 points and 20 rebounds last night.
Jahlil Okafor is going to look great in a Lakers jersey.
On his 19th B-day, projected No. 1 pick Jahlil Okafor went for a season-high 25 pts and 20 rebs in Duke's 75-62 victory over Elon.
