Adam Zagoria

I'm told 25 NBA teams will be repped at tomorrow's Duke/UConn game featuring the Jahlil Okafor/Amida Brimah matchup.

Adam Zagoria

For #Nets (and #Knicks) fans allowing themselves to dream Jahlil Okafor &his Duke teammates practiced today at the Nets' facility in Jersey.

Emiliano Carchia

Duke beats Elon 85-72. Jahlil Okafor DOMINATED the game with 25 points and 20 rebounds VIDEO: sportando.com/en/usa/ncaa/14…

Frank Isola

Good news for the Knicks; Duke's Jahlil Okafor had 25 points and 20 rebounds last night.

Jimmy Spencer

Jahlil Okafor is going to look great in a Lakers jersey.

Adam Zagoria

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.

Jeff Goodman

Lots of really good big men to choose from this season: Okafor, Montrezl, Cauley-Stein, Kaminsky lead the list.

Jeff Goodman

All of them. RT @ahura23: @Jeff Goodman Which NBA team do you think is the best fit for Jahlil Okafor?

Josh Newman

Duke-UConn Thursday is coming at a good time. Jahlil Okafor (25 & 20) and Amida Brimah (40 pts.) are coming off huge games before facing off

Jeff Goodman

I know it came against Elon, but Jahlil Okafor went for 25 points and 20 boards tonight. Player of Year frontrunner.

Bob Cooney

Duke's Jahlil Okafor went for 25 points and 20 rebounds tonight. Just saying.

David Alarcon

Jahlil Okafor 25pts (10/14) y 20rebs. 1º consigue 20-20 desde Elton Brand (1998) on.ncaa.com/1xn9fx5 Mock Draft'15 bit.ly/1IVzDBU

Alex Kennedy

Jahlil Okafor (@Jahlil Okafor) had 25 points, 20 rebounds, 3 blocks and 2 steals in Duke's win tonight. He was 10-14 from the field. #beastmode

Adam Zagoria

UConn's Amida Brimah went off for 40 today on 13-for-13 shooting. Projected as No. 16 pick in 2016 @Jonathan Givony. Faces Duke's Okafor Thurs

Josh Newman

Per @Adam Zagoria, Fisher says the Knicks aren't playing poor for Okafor, ceding the day for Mudiay, or even playing like clowns for Towns

Darren Wolfson

Getting to know more about Kristaps Porzingis - #Twolves have scouted plenty. Had a non-MN scout say today he'd surely take him over Okafor.

Adam Zagoria

With the Sixers& Knicks Battling in the Jahlil Okafor Sweepstakes,what does Okafor think of all the #TankingSlogans? zagsblog.com/articles/sixer…"

Howard Beck

Knicks fans asking: Yes, I also had them drafting Okafor in fantasy scenario. It was cut from video. I'd still sign a vet center to start.

Luke Winn

In the Power Ranx, charting of every successful feed to Duke's Jahlil Okafor has Tyus Jones creating 6.1 ppg for Jah: on.si.com/1yVJDXe

Alex Kennedy

I think Jahlil Okafor will be the top pick in the 2015 NBA Draft. He's one of many talented big men in this class: basketballinsiders.com/nba-pm-2015-dr…

Chris Mannix

NBA Draft Big Board 1.0: Duke's Jahlil Okafor solidly entrenched at No. 1; Wisconsin's Kaminsky, Dekker in--for now on.si.com/1Afr7aH

Derek Bodner

Jahlil Okafor has yet to commit a turnover when passing out of the post. That's amazing.

Alex Kennedy

When Kobe Bryant was drafted in 1996, Jahlil Okafor was six months old.

Derek Bodner

Other takeaway from re-watching Duke/Wisconsin: Man, Okafor's pick and roll defense is the one thing that legitimately scares me.

Jeff Goodman

You know they can't play all 6 at once, right? RT @IAmJonDerek: @Nolan Smith @Jeff Goodman just can't see it. Okafor against UK's front line.

Tony Jones

Jahlil Okafor. Emmanual Mudiay. Karl Anthony Towns. Jazz fans, which top 3 pick would you want for next season?

Adam Zagoria

#Knicks still trying to Lose Some More for Okafor or Cede the Day for Mudiay theknicksblog.com/knicks/as-knic…

Marc Berman

Odds for Okafor appear better than landing Gasol. #Knicks will pursue Marc but unsure he's leaving Memphis nyp.st/1rVDKZD

Marc Berman

#Knicks lhave better chance at drawing Okafor than landing Gasol. Club not banking on Marc leaving Memphis nyp.st/1rVDKZD

Sean Highkin

I'm the 2013-14 Bucks of my salary cap league. I tried to be good and I'm 0-5 and losing this week. Guess I'll get Okafor.

Alex Kennedy

I first interviewed Jahlil Okafor (@Jahlil Okafor) when he was 16 years old and he was so mature beyond his years. He's special.

Adam Zagoria

Sixers & Knicks in a tight race to... 'Lose some more for Okafor' 'Keep ya wins low for Winslow' And with the No. 1 pick in the NBA Draft..

Derek Bodner

Okafor back in with 2:32 left, Duke up 7. Okafor has 4 fouls.

Wally Szcerzbiak

Might have the next Tim Duncan in Jahlil Okafor! #SoftTouch @ESPNCBB

Chris Mannix

Every NBA exec watching Duke-Wisconsin just saw that Jahlil Okafor bank shot. Presumptive No. 1 overall pick gets more appealing by the game

Derek Bodner

Okafor looks like he might tear down a rim some day.

Darren Wolfson

Trying to recall a worse defensive team than this bunch of #Twolves. Still don't mind the score because of Okafor. Rhyme is close enough.

Derek Bodner

Okafor really makes a point guards life easy. Any pass in the area is a good entry pass.

Jeff Goodman

Duke vs. Wisconsin. Okafor vs. Frank the Tank. Winslow vs. Dekker. ESPN. This should be fun.

Derek Bodner

Kaminsky vs Okafor. This night just got real.

Adam Zagoria

At 4-15, the #Knicks may just want to 'Lose some more for Okafor' or "Cede the day for Mudiay' theknicksblog.com/knicks/as-knic…

NBA Scout Says Comparing Jahlil Okafor to Connie Hawkins is ‘Insane’ zagsblog.com/articles/nba-s…

Adam Zagoria

#Knicks now have a 47% chance of a top-3 pick and 15.6% chance of the No. 1 pick, per @tankathon . 'Lose More for Okafor.'

Darren Wolfson

Don't mind the score because of Okafor: prob. mid-Jan. until injured #Twolves are back - Pek maybe a bit sooner. Ugly 5-games after 76ers.

Bill Simmons

"CHOKE MORE FOR OKAFOR." RT @Chad Ford Big Board 3.0 is here. Okafor is 1. es.pn/1zLYiSL (in)
