Default Jahlil Okafor thoughts on NBA

Jahlil Okafor on First Take:

"A GM should draft me because I'm a winner. I've won on every level. I see Steph Curry, Klay Thompson, and LeBron James get criticized, and I wouldn't expect any less.

Duncan, Gasol, O'Neal. Hopefully I win can multiple championships like those guys but I have yet to play in the NBA.

I'm 19 so to say I'm finished is ludicrous.

Duncan is the guy who's been a good system person for me to watch. Hakeem is one of my dad and mines idols. I like Dwight Howard and watch his workout tapes. I've stolen a lot of his moves. Tim Duncan and Hakeem are the two guys I model my game after.

I've thought about being under Kobe or Garnett, and being able to talk to those guys, pick their brains would help me learn a lot.

I haven't thought about my style game, everybody looks at Westbrook's fashion but I don't think I can pull that off.

If I could play with anybody in the league, it'd be Tim Duncan because he's the guy I idolized and being under his leadership would be great for me."

Why can't they both turn out to be good players?

I have heard that he was lazy, not 100% serious about the game, and in questionable shape, an Andrew Bynum kind of situation.

I hope that's not true, because I love his game.

hey dummy, it's not that both can't be good players

this is a forum and its an unwritten rule that if there are 2 similar guys who will go 1 and 2 then you must pick one to stan and one to hate.

you're either a parker guy or a wiggins guy

you're either a okafor guy or a towns guy

idiot

It's one thing to joke about fashion. It's an entirely different thing when you have to block out Deandre Jordan or Dwight.
