The Philadelphia 76ers have had a terrible start to their season. They lost to the Boston Celtics Wednesday night to drop their record to 0-16, one of their worst starts in franchise history.
The team is pretty frustrated and with good reason. Following the loss, 76ers 2015 first round pick Jahlil Okafor got into an altercation with a fan outside near the stadium and TMZ had the video that apparently showed Okafor punching the man and knocking him out.
We’re told everyone got up and fled the scene and no arrests were made.
We’re told the altercation began because one of the men in the other group yelled at Jahlil, “The 76ers suck.”
We spoke with a rep for Jahlil who tells us … Okafor says he was being heckled from the moment he left the club and felt threatened because people swarmed him on the street
It certainly isn’t clear how the fight started or who initiated it, but it does look like Okafor was the main instigator from the video. Follow Campus Sports for the latest information on the situation.
