Jahlil Okafor 30 Points/6 Dunks Full Highlights (4/9/2019)

When you think of the phrase “bucket party”, what do you think of? For me, I think of ordering a family-sized bucket of fried chicken from KFC and eating it over the course of an evening while watching NBA basketball. It’s not really a party by the conventional definition of the word because it’s just…

Jahlil Okafor 23 Points/1 Three Full Highlights (4/7/2019)

Jahlil Okafor had only made two three-pointers before this game, one of them during his rookie year in Philly, and the other while he was in Brooklyn. Considering that his jumpshot range pretty much has a hard stop at around sixteen feet, this shouldn’t be a surprise. He’s never been, and probably never will be,…

Jahlil Okafor 15 Points Full Highlights (3/16/2019)

Jahlil Okafor was a fun story for a little white there. Did you realize that he had a 5-game stretch where he averaged almost 10 makes a game? He was a straight-up bucket machine, just like what he was drafted to be. A guy who was put on this earth to do one thing and…

Jahlil Okafor 25 Points Full Highlights (2/3/2019)

Anthony Davis can go screw off to LA or wherever, just as long as he doesn’t stay in New Orleans. Because I don’t know if he got the message, if he didn’t, well, he’s getting it now: this is Jahlil Okafor’s team now. I don’t think there’s a single fan in the whole state of…

Jahlil Okafor 27 Points Full Highlights (1/29/2019)

It’s official. Anthony Davis wants out of New Orleans after they spent over half a decade trying (and failing) to put a decent team around him. What does this mean for our favorite marginalized big man, Jahlil “Jah Rule” Okafor? This is going to sound like a cop-out answer but: it depends. If Alvin Gentry…

Jahlil Okafor 24 Points Full Highlights (1/26/2019)

The Jahlil Okafor redemption tour continues. His makes and misses from the last four games look like this: 9-of-11, 8-of-13, 9-of-12, and now 10-of-12. I would love nothing more than to say this resulted in four Pelicans wins, but that would be a lie. They did win the first of those, at least. But who…

Jahlil Okafor 18 Points Full Highlights (1/24/2019)

Jahlil “Jah Rule” Okafor appeared to have a good game here. He was nine of twelve from the field, and he got those points opportunistically, rather than doing lumbering Al Jefferson impersonations all over the place. He also had eight rebounds (good) to go with zero assists, zero steals, and zero blocks (not so good,…

Jahlil Okafor 17 Points/6 Blocks Full Highlights (1/23/2019)

If I went back in time and told the past version of DTB who was alive in 2016 that, in the year 2019, I would not only be making a Jahlil Okafor 17-point highlight video, but I would be excited about it, the past version of me would laugh in my face. Straight up laughter….

Jahlil Okafor 20 Points/3 Dunks Full Highlights (1/21/2019)

I really wanted to enjoy these Jahlil Okafor highlights. I really, honestly, truly did. But I can’t. It’s not Okafor’s fault in any way. He played the same way that he did in Philadelphia, a style which was somehow aesthetic, clumsy, powerful, skilled, plodding, and polished, all combined into one unholy morass. The basketball part…

Jahlil Okafor 17 Points Full Highlights (12/19/2018)

Jahlil Okafor subbed out of this game with 5:45 left in the third quarter and the Pelicans leading the Bucks 80-74. He never got back in, and the Pelicans lost 115-123. The Bucks, more specificially Brook Lopez, didn’t know what to do about him. It’s almost like people have gone for so long without seeing…
