Jahlil Okafor has had a pretty good month, and for a young man who has gone through quite a lot of pain in life so far you can bet he has earned any success that is coming his way. He and Tyus Jones will be going to school in Durham next season, and you can bet that they will put on a show for college basketball fans next season. In the meantime though, the two young men have another season of high school basketball ahead of them and they are both aiming at state titles.
Thanks to Okafor for retweeting this picture of him attending a film screening with Chicago Bulls center Joakim Noah.

Noah apparently advised Okafor to give back to the community one day, which is great to hear. These two will be banging down low in pro basketball soon enough everybody, so we will have to see if they remain friendly throughout the coming years. Who knows? They might even play on the same team one day, but let us be real probably not.
That is all for today folks, but be sure to check out my pro basketball previews tomorrow morning that will include TV schedules and betting lines. ‘Cuz that is how we do at Rant Sports. Boom.
