Watch: Jahlil Okafor never lets his guard down
Tuesday May 19th, 2015

NBA draft prospect Jahlil Okafor stopped by SI Now this week and got a bit of a surprise during an interview with SI Now's Maggie Gray. NBA editor Matt Dollinger attempted to pull a fast one on the former Duke star by posterizing him on a sneak attack, but Okafor was ready.

Not only did Okafor reject Dollinger at the rim, he threw the ball down on him afterwards, perhaps still remembering that Dollinger chose Towns over him in's No. 1 draft pick roundtable

Between Okafor and former Wisconsin big man Frank Kaminsky, it was a good day at SI for NBA draft hopefuls.
