BOSTON, Mass. – Philadelphia 76ers rookie Jahlil Okafor apparently took out his on-court frustrations during a late-night altercation after a loss to the Celtics Wednesday.
The 6-foot-11-inch center was leaving the Boston Storyville nightclub with teammate Christian Wood after an NBA record-tying 26th straight loss when a man called out “The 76ers suck!” according to TMZ.
Video of the fight shows Okafor firing back “We got money, you broke-ass n—-” before shoving one of the hecklers in the chest. As his taunters rush him, Okafor slams one into a car before knocking out another — all while holding back a man trying to punch him from behind.
No charges have been filed in the incident, and by the time police got to the club, Okafor and the other men had already left.
A Sixers spokesman told the Philadelphia Inquirer in a statement:
“We are aware of the report, and we are currently working to gather additional information. Until that time, we will have no further comment.”
