When he was drafted by the Philadelphia 76ers, Jahlil Okafor knew he wasn’t joining a championship contender. So far this season, with Okafor at the helm, the Sixers are the worst team in the NBA, and have yet to win a game. The Boston Celtics handed the Sixers their 16 straight L this year last night when they won 84-80.
Last night outside the Storyville Boston Nightclub in the Bean, a Celtics fan decided to add to Okafor’s aggravation by yelling “The 76ers suck,” according to TMZ. After some awing back and forth, a skirmish ensued, resulting in Jahlil knocking one of the dudes the fuck out. No arrests were made.
Okafor says he was being heckled from the moment he left the club and felt threatened because people swarmed him on the street.
He says he was with a teammate — who he wouldn’t name — and says someone got physical with the teammate … so Jahlil did what he felt he needed to do to protect himself and his friend.
They immediately left after the incident.
