Jahlil Okafor Somehow Held 13 Tennis Balls In His Hand

Jahlil Okafor, who led Duke to a national title this past year, is considered a top NBA prospect for both his skills and his size. As we noted back in early April, he has enormous hands, which, while making it easy for him to palm a basketball, also makes it difficult for him to shoot free throws. This week, Okafor hung out with the Bleacher Report crew, playing a modified version of beer pong to try to figure out where he'll be drafted next month. He also simultaneously held 13 tennis balls in his hand, which has to be some kind of record.

For the record, I can probably hold three - maybe four.

Okafor is expected to be either the first or second pick overall in June's draft. It'll be interesting to see where he lands.
