Goodluck Okonoboh shows competitive nature at LBJ Skills Academy — Cuse Clicks

An athletic and tough 6-foot-10 center, Okonoboh checks in at a surprisingly lean 213 pounds. However, he plays much stronger than that and wasn’t backing down from anybody on Saturday. During two-on-two big man drills, he was all over the place, helping to block shots, blocking shots straight up and scoring with power around the rim. “I think that’s just my competitive nature,” Okonoboh told “I think it was LeBron who said it yesterday that somebody scoring on you was kind of like taking your manhood. So I look at it like that.”
