    Agreed and AGREED!

    Can you imagine what this team would look like if Jabari stayed another year?

    I really, really think there's a great shot at that! Jabari is such an intelligent guy. He values the Duke degree and the college experience. A lot of top players say they want to stay 2 or 3 years, but I think Jabari means it.

    Unless we win the national title this year, I think there's a really good chance of him coming back. I'm pretty sure Hood will leave though, especially if he continues to play at such a high level.

    Cook/TJones/Sulaimon/Parker/Okafor, with Jefferson/MJones/Ojeleye/Murphy/MP3/Allen and Justise? Wow.

    My dream lineup would be Jones/Sulaimon/Parker/Turner/Okafor

    ^that lineup has a natty guaranteed all over it, but that is a big longshot of a lineup.

    Yeah I'd also take Jones/Sulaimon/Hood/Parker/Okafor

    Has been described by some pundits as having amongst the best set of post skills ever seen on the high school level ... Dominant high school player who will be a dominant college player likely for a year

    I have read comparisons to Tim Duncan and Bill Russel. That is some lofty praise for sure. It is not only his size and talent, but his mental approach to the game that endears everyone to him. He is a team first guy.

    Yup. He and Tyus both are reportedly "mature beyond their years" just like Jabari. Looking forward to watching this group of players

    If we get Winslow, we should all give a big thanks to Mr. Okafor (sr)!

    Whitney Young (IL) and Jahlil Okafor will face off against Apple Valley (MN) and Tyus Jones tonight at 7pm on ESPN2.

    Okafor is the #1 Center and #1 overall player in 2014, while Tyus Jones is the #1 PG and #4 overall player in the class. Both are considered 5-star, elite, top of the class prospects.
