    Interesting that his decision to play for the us u19 team allows him to play for the world rising stars team:)

    Or it could be the fact that he was born in Lagos, Nigeria...;)

    :rolleyes: Obviously

    However, he can't play for Nigeria in any future Intl competition. I know that the NBA thing is informal and for fun. I was just making an observation.

    I watched the end of the 4th after the GT game and the ESPN broadcast was basically the Josh Okogie show, they couldn't stop talking about him!

    Timberwolf in ESPN interview: we're not just one player winning single handedly, but Josh came pretty close tonight

    Every time I hear good things about JoshO in the NBA I get conflicting feelings of being happy he is showing out and pissed that he's not doing it at GT. Anyways he'll be a fan favorite with his hustle and dunks.

    On the bright side, recruits (maybe just those local to the Atlanta metro region) have been announcing their offers from Tech typically with a photo of Josh in their tweets. Players should know Josh Pastner helped develop a 3* high school recruit into a rising NBA household name.

    But what could have been...maybe Okogie’s effect on the court means more production out of Jose and we’re tourney bound.

    Can’t get enough of that sequence with Josh last night. The steal, dunk, three and block. All on Harden.

    I can’t be mad at him he clearly made the right decision. His offence is a work in progress but advanced stats say he’s already an average defender which is big for a rookie taken 20th.

    One of the dumbest calls in annoucer history, while showing stuff of Hardin, "The name is Okogie, folks, and you can't spell it without the O ... and the K!"

    Dumber than “he knows calculus and angles”?

    Would have been a great line if he played in Oklahoma City, though.
