Default Jahlil Okafor

What is going on with him then? Is he injured or just a scrub now or what?

Think about this, it is 2018 and Emeka Okafor is getting more playing time and putting up better numbers than Jahlil Okafor.

Jahlil needs to understand this. If you're a big man and can't score consistently and efficiently, you MUST defend. If you can't do either thing, you are not NBA material. He came to the league feeling entitled and believing he was destined to be a franchise player. Reality hit him in the face, hard.

Tell that to Greg Monroe. Dude keeps getting traded over and over and he still gets the minutes.

Yes, and his value drops by the minute. He'll be lucky if someone offer him a contract next season.

He's a big man in a big mans body in a fast paced league.

I still think Okafor will be better than Towns. I'm not giving up on that notion.

He has been among the worst players in the NBA since he got to the NBA.

So what happened to him? He had an 18/7 rookie season.

No, he's not. He's a backup to Tyler ****ing Zellar, he can't even start for one of the worst teams in the league. No where close to "one of the most skilled" in anything.
