You could call Dick Vitale a man of hyperbole, but you would also have to say that he has seen quite a bit of college basketball in his years. It did not come as a surprise to me then, when the ESPN analyst called Jahlil Okafor the (in all caps of course) “BEST LEGIT POST PLAYER” the Duke Blue Devils have ever had. Love the enthusiasm as always from Vitale, and you can check that out below if you were interested.

Loving that tweet as well as Okafor’s season so far; he has played exceedingly well and the Whitney Young (IL) Dolphins have officially become must watch because of their young center. Paul White is no slouch for them either, and might even try to catch a game of his next season. Love the Hoyas and Allen Iverson’s grey jersey might be my favorite college jersey ever. Know this was kind of a brain droppings day, but promise that in the end we will pop out at a very beautiful place indeed.
The Blue Devils will certainly have a reliable threat in the post, and the beauty is that they have excellent shooting from Tyus Jones as well to look forward to. Yes, they are going to be a matchup nightmare for opposing coaches, and happy that do not have to try and figure out a game-plan myself. Thanks as always for reading and will leave you with a bit of fortune cookie wisdom.
