Jahlil Okafor’s name has been in the rumor mill all summer long with the most mentioned destination being Los Angeles. Well, the skilled 6’11 20-year old was in LA this past week but it wasn’t to meet with Luke Walton (I think), it was to play in an invite-only game at Nike Air West (the ‘Eyes Wide Shut’ of the basketball world).
As evident by the footage, which also features dunk phenom Kwame Alexander and Filipino hoop star Kiefer Ravena, there’s a lot of reasons why Boston and LA would love to have Okafor and why Philly fans can’t wait to see the future All-Star and #1 pick Ben Simmons on the court together.
