Duke Blue Devils head coach Mike Krzyzewski has often waxed poetic about Jahlil Okafor, the freshman phenom who is all but certain to be a lottery pick in the 2015 NBA Draft.  Coach K may have said the best of it all after he won his 1,000th game at Madison Square Garden over the St. John’s Red Storm earlier this season.  “He’s a remarkable player…he’ll be a franchise player and a franchise person for whoever is lucky enough to get him.”  Watch the video below to see Mike Krzyzewski’s other comments about Okafor, and his press conference in it’s entirety after winning game 1,000.
