Jahlil Okafor and Paul White got some nice news recently, and they had a teammate receive an honor as well. Okafor and White were named to first team All-City and Miles Reynolds made the second team. Much thanks to the tweet below for the alert, and it goes without saying that all of this talent makes the Dolphins the favorite to win the City Championships.
Congrats to Jahlil Okafor and Paul White (Whitney Young) named to Chicago's All City 1st Team & Miles Reynolds to 2nd Team! Way to go!

Cliff Alexander might have something to say about that though, and ultimately think it will either be Whitney Young or Curie who ends up winning the state title. The City Championships essentially decided the state title last season, so it is hard not to think that way about this season as well. Not quite ready to make a prediction yet, but you all will be the first to get it once I have the guts to make one. Leaning towards Okafor right now, but reserve the right to change my mind if things go south for the Dolphins in the next couple weeks.
That is all today for the up and coming ballers of America today, but will leave you with some fortune cookie wisdom to carry forward.
