What Is Jahlil Okafor's Deal
When Big Jah was coming out of Duke I was honestly very high on him. So high on him that I'm actually embarrassed to say I would've taken him over Karl Anthony-Towns and I could not have been anymore more wrong. I don't think I've seen anyone who is so uninterested unless he has the ball in his hands. Jahlil Okafor might be the 6'10 James Harden now that I think of it. Check out this sequence he had the other night in a game against the Jazz.

Horrible. Bad. Might be sleep walking to be completely honest. The worst thing about that is he absolutely murdered Rudy Gobert twice in that same game once he got the ball.

So rude to do that to Rudy Gobert. But then Jah would go back to making mind-blowing decisions.
This is not a one game occurrence people. Was wildly inconsistent against the Cavs recently too. Here he is actually playing nice defense on Kyrie.
Then here he is wanting nothing to do with LeBron James.
Knock on Jahlil Okafor was his atrocious defense and it was on display on this LBJ dunkhttps://t.co/KH2VjXs5Ap— Curtlow!!! (@SWHTown30) November 7, 2015
Jahlil Okafor could probably score on everyone in the NBA if he's got the ball on the block but I don't think he could guard Hellen Keller. I guess take the good with the bad with Big Jah, who's pretty much Al Jefferson at this point.
