Saw the tweet below recently from a Duke Blue Devils fan and so wanted to do some investigating as to what it was referring to.

It was referring to this tweet below from Jahlil Okafor, who was not afraid to re-tweet a haters tweet recently.

The Jalen Rose reference is to the Fab Five documentary where Rose says some derogatory things about the kind of players the Blue Devils recruited. It was a hot button topic in the media for a while, because it was racially charged.
Okafor is a young man with a lot of focus, and so it does not surprise me that he does not let the haters on twitter bother him. He will drown out the noise the rest of the season, and it is my prediction that he will bring home the state title this season with Jabari Parker out of the way and forward Cliff Alexander acting a fool pretty much 24/7.
