Jahlil Okafor recently attended a film screening with Joakim Noah who apparently told the Whitney Young center to give back to Chicago “when he gets his bread”. That is pretty funny advice to give, and it will be interesting to watch those two have some big man battles down the line. The film was about Lenny Cooke, who believe was there at the screening as well which is pretty cool. Thanks to Jon Greenberg for the tweet below and the alert to this.
Cool scene here as Joakim implores Jahlil Okafor to give back to Chicago one day "when he gets his bread."

Noah also tweeted about the event, which you can check out below and below the film is still airing if you are in the Chicago area. Believe it is airing at the Siskel Film Center if you are interested.

Okafor is the top ranked player in the 2014 college basketball recruiting class and fully expect him to bring home his first state title after being blocked for the last three years by the pesky Jabari Parker.
