NBA News: Jahlil Okafor Tweets Regret Over Decisions

Jahlil Okafor is repentant about providing his team with distractions in this season’s NBA. Okafor, a rookie who dished out stellar show this season despite his team’s dismal run, hit headlines after getting involved in a Boston street brawl on Wednesday.

Jahlil Okafor is repentant about providing his team with distractions in this season’s NBA. Okafor, a rookie who dished out stellar show this season despite his team’s dismal run, hit headlines after getting involved in a Boston street brawl on Wednesday.

The 19-year-old is averaging 18 points and 7.9 rebounds. The No 3 pick of the NBA draft was also held for reckless driving three weeks ago. He was speeding on 108 mph over the Ben Franklin Bridge.

Okafor’s image took a big hit after last week’s streetfight. The man reported to Boston Police as a victim. On Sunday evening, Okafor apologized on Twitter. Boston Police, though, didn’t open any investigation against the rookie player because no one came forward as a witness.

Last October, a heckler pointed a gun at Okafor’s head after a heated altercation in Philadelphia, according to Inquirer.

“I hold myself to a higher standard than anyone else ever could and I’m not proud of some of my decisions over the last few months,” Okafor revealed on Sunday.

“Going forward I don’t want to be a distraction for my team and am grateful for the support and guidance those close to me are giving.”

“I am 100% focused on my responsibility to the League, my teammates and fans.”
