Okafor Suspended By 76ers [VIDEO]
Perhaps South Portland's Brett Brown can eventually teach Jahlil Okafor some 'downeast Maine common sense'. But not so far. The team suspended their #1 pick for two games.
Prized Philadelphia 76ers rookie Jahlil Okafor looks like he may be more interested in beating other people than beating other teams.
The video, which captures the confrontation, doesn't capture, only that Okafor was there. In fact, it's hard to tell if he even threw any punches.
The early part of Okafor's career has been marred by trouble. In addition to these two fights, there are reports he had a gun pointed at him in Philadelphia.
After all these incidents, Okafor was reportedly set to have a security guard in tow whenever he goes out.
Things haven't been much better on the court for Okafor. Although he's averaging a solid 17.2 points per game, the Sixers rolled out 18 consecutive losses to start the season before finally beating the Lakers on Tuesday night.
