Jahlil Okafor’s dad had a great Twitter comeback in 2017

Father’s Day may be a celebration of dad jokes everywhere, but Jahlil Okafor’s old man can supply us with some real laughs.

For those who need a reminder, Okafor’s father, Chukwudi, once responded to a hater in the best way possible. In 2017, Chukwudi Okafor responded to Philly sports superfan, known as Shamus Clancy, with an all-time clap-back.

Jahlil owes his father big-time, because there are very few supporters of that ilk willing to go to war for him at this stage of his career. The former Duke center was taken third in the 2015 NBA Draft, one slot ahead of Kristaps Porzingis, who conveniently fell to the Knicks at No. 4. Since, Okafor fell out of favor in Philly, spent a season in Brooklyn, and jumped on the New Orleans Pelicans bandwagon as a backup big.

While Okafor does have some post game, such a brand is a dying breed in today’s NBA. Okafor doesn’t provide the spacing necessary to get starter’s minutes, and isn’t a quick enough defender to be used in crunch time.

Okafor proved he can be a capable scorer in some facets, but isn’t a leading player on a championship-caliber roster, period.

Even his dad would have to admit that at this point.
