IF he stays and lets say he improves his game does he have a chance to go as the #1 pick next year over okafor?

Absolutely. I don't expect Okafor to blow NBA scouts away. His game, which I really like, is distinctly old fashioned. Teams just don't run their offenses through the post that way anymore, and he's not an elite enough athlete to help defend the way the vast majority of NBA teams want their bigs to be able to defend anymore, that being rotating and popping out. Nor will he run the floor at a rate that will get him the easy hoops that bouey a lot of bigs offense in the modern league.
