Tyus Jones Posts Heartwarming Tribute To "Best Friend" Jahlil Okafor On Twitter

By now, you've heard that Duke freshmen Jahlil Okafor and Tyus Jones met in third grade, roomed together and became best friends in ninth grade, and chose to play for the same college so that they could potentially win a national championship together. Thursday, with Okafor officially declaring for the NBA Draft after just one season, Jones took to Twitter with a cool tribute to his teammate. He urged Okafor to go make "another dream" a reality.

Currently, it isn't known whether Jones will join Okafor and declare for the upcoming NBA Draft. But if he does decide to take the jump, it would be pretty cool to see them both drafted on the same night.
