The Philadelphia 76ers haven’t won a game yet this season, and all that pent-up frustration must have gotten to rookie Jahlil Okafor, leading to a fight Wednesday night.
After Philly’s 26th consecutive loss to the Boston Celtics, which ties an NBA record, Jahlil was spotted at Boston’s Storyville nightclub with teammate Christian Wood. Upon exiting the club, several men began to allegedly taunt the two NBA players. Jahlil responded by saying, “We got money, you broke-ass n-ggas. We got money.” Apparently, the remark that set him off was “The 76ers suck.” Rather simple and to the point, just like any good heckler.
The video then shows Jahlil slamming one of the men into a car while catching another one with a right hook. TMZ caught up with a representative for Jahlil, who says that he felt threatened by the group of hecklers.
The 76ers released a statement late Thursday night: “We are aware of the report and we are currently working to gather additional information. Until that time, we will have no further comment.”
No arrests were made, as everyone involved in the fight left before police arrived.
