Mike Krzyzewski has coached the best basketball players on the planet, so when he hypes a player, you better listen.
All fall, Krzyzewski raved about his 6-11 freshman center, Jahlil Okafor. “There’s nobody like him,” he said back in September. He’s already acknowledged he expects Okafor’s stay in Durham to be short, and that Okafor will be among the top picks in the 2015 NBA draft.
Eight games into the season, Okafor is averaging 17.1 points per game and 7.6 rebounds per game. But it’s too simple to say Okafor alone is the reason for Duke’s 8-0 start and No. 2 ranking.
