Watch: Jahlil Okafor Video Involved In Boston Street Brawl
The Philadelphia 76ers had a miserable start this season. Their only ray of hope, Jahlil Okafor, has hit the headlines due to a street brawl outside the stadium on Wednesday after the game. Watch the Jahlil Okafor video after in the link below.Advertisement
A TMZ Sports video went viral showing Okafor, the No 3 overall pick of June’s NBA draft, involved in a heated altercation outside a Boston bar. The fight started after the man shouted at Okafor for the 76ers’ poor outing in the last game. Philadelphia is now 0-16.
“The 76ers suck,” the man said, according to reports.
The video shows Okafor, the only performer for the 76ers, yelling back at the man in foul language.
“We got money, you broke ass n—s,” Okafor was heard shouting.
“We spoke with a rep for Jahlil who tells us… Okafor says he was being heckled from the moment he left the club and felt threatened because people swarmed him on the street,” TMZ reports.
Big man Okafor averages 17.7 points and 9.6 rebounds in 33 minutes per game this season. Perhaps he didn’t expect heckles on the streets after the performance, but his side suffered another jolt against Boston Celtics on Wednesday. The Sixers will be up against Houston Rockets tonight.
