Meet Whitney Young Center Jahlil Okafor, The Newest King of Chicago Basketball
Meet Whitney Young Center Jahlil Okafor. He is now the newest King of Chicago Basketball; that is thanks to Jabari Parker about to graduate high school basketball. Parker had a solid run that included an unfathomable four straight state championships.
Speaking of EYBL, Jahlil Okafor is expected to play for the Fire this weekend in Dallas. Had been nursing injury and rested last weekend.

Here was my piece yesterday about where Okafor and his childhood friend Tyus Jones may end up. It is embedded below and if you have any comments feel free to rant them below.

Okafor was named the Chicago Sun Times player of the year, but missed out on the Gatorade award as well as Mr. Basketball in Illinois. Those two awards should both be within Okafor’s reach next year, but he would probably trade getting a state championship for either of those though.
We’ll just have to see what kind of noise Okafor can make next year. He is now king of the hill though, and he will have a whole host of competitors trying to bring him down next year. A true competitor rises to the challenge of adversity though and that is what I expect to see from Okafor next year.
