The number of NBA players with tattoos is growing and more are doing so than ever before.
The number rose to over 3.3 million in 2015, according to Sports Illustrated.
But there are still a lot of players that don’t have any tattoos, according the Sports Illustrated article.
One such player is the NBA’s first-ever first-round pick in 2017, Jahlil Okafor.
Okaf, a 6-foot-9, 220-pound guard, was drafted out of Villanova last year and is currently averaging 18.5 points and 5.7 rebounds per game in just over a year.
While Okaffs tattoos are not the same as those of NBA stars like Kevin Durant, Kobe Bryant and Russell Westbrook, they still represent his personality and his talent, and that’s a good thing.
Okefo has also played for two different teams this season.
He’s averaged 15.7 points and 6.2 rebounds per contest on his own, but he has also been an important part of the Villanova offense, leading the team with a career-high 29.1 percent field goal percentage.
The Villanova Wildcats have been ranked in the top 10 of the polls for the past three weeks.
Their next opponent is No. 3 seed Villanova in the NCAA Tournament.
Ojawa’s NBA career will be a long one, as he will enter the 2019-20 season in the first year of the new Collective Bargaining Agreement, but it seems like he’ll be able to enjoy the ride without having to worry about the tattoo industry.
