"When I was in high school, he was my brother, my mentor, my coach," Okoji said. "There is a connection between us. It’s a place with your coach and future opponent. Very interesting thing. It's cool and very loving. We should be friends for a lifetime."
"He never taught me anything, such as letting you do this or doing that," said the No. 20 pick rookie. "He prefers to call me. If I have something to ask him or talk to, I went to find him. If I need to talk to someone, what will I do? He is my free consultant. On the draft night, or some important time, he will calm me down and tell me everything will be Smooth. He has done a lot for me in different occasions in my life."
"Our relationship is not limited to the scope of basketball. If I have problems with basketball, I can find him, but if you have more personal things, you can find him. This is where I like this relationship most."
