Okafor Balling for the Bottom
To go with Karl-Anthony Towns, Jahlil Okafor may be the most talented rookie in the draft—it’s a shame he’s stuck on one of the worst teams in NBA history. While the reigning champion Golden State Warriors accomplished a historic 73 wins this season, Okafor and the Philadelphia 76ers reached 72 losses, making them the 3rd worst team in NBA history. Being sidelined since late February due to a knee injury, Okafor finished 2nd in scoring, 3rd in rebounds and 4th in blocks amongst rookies. The Sixers have one of the youngest rosters in the entire NBA and it may not be long until these guys will be competing for a playoff spot. With monthly improvement from Okafor, maybe he’ll be able to lead his team into the postseason one day.
