It’s one thing to be a supportive parent, and it’s another to be delusional. Speaking optimistically, Chukwudi Okafor, the father of star Duke University recruit Jahlil Okafor, may be somewhere in between.

Granted, the soon-to-be NBA player is a NCAA Champion, 1st team All-American, three-time FIBA Gold Medalist, and then some. But, at just 19-years-old, how can he truly compare to the Windy City’s rich history of quality ballers.
That said, Hip-Hop Wired lists 10 Chicago basketball players who are better than Okafor.
