Jahlil Okafor will command a double-team in the post for the Duke Blue Devils next season, and it is an element of the gameplan that is just not there for them this season. Thanks to Alex Schiffer, or the SchiffMan, for the inspiration.
Duke would be in this game is they had a true big man. They need a player like Jahlil Okafor NOW.

The Blue Devils had a rough night with Jabari Parker shooting poorly (7 of 21 from the field) despite shooting 60% from the field in the early season. They certainly could have used another reliable offensive option to get efficient points, and Okafor is certainly that and much more if you ask me.
Hope everyone is enjoying their time off of work, and having some lovely leftovers. My lovely Thanksgiving host was kind enough to even pack some turkey sandwich leftovers for the lovely drive back to Chicago through the hell that is the Indiana Toll Road. Most of my nightmare seem to occur on that toll road. In the future folks? Just avoid the toll roads and go with alternate prettier routes that have more than just fast food to eat, and hopefully also take you nearby some of this country’s many beautiful natural parks. Okay, hopping down off my soapbox and getting ready to get excited about Okafor’s upcoming televised game in December.
