Player Comparison: Al Jefferson
Okafor will get some comparisons to Tim Duncan. Those comparisons are a little exaggerated. However, Okafor, has a silky smooth post game, and has some of the same deficiencies that Jefferson has, like lack of athleticism. But like Jefferson, Okafor more than makes up for it because of his go-to offensive post moves.
