Footage from TMZ appears to show Philadelphia 76ers rookie Jahlil Okafor involved in a skirmish on the streets of Boston late last night.
The 76ers were in town to play the Celtics. (They lost.) According to the report, the fight started after someone said, “The 76ers suck.” The video starts with the 19-year-old Okafor yelling, “We got money, you broke-ass nigga. We got money.”
Another snippet in the video shows Okafor knocking a man to the ground while being held by another man, in front of a security car:
TMZ spoke with a representative for Okafor, who said that the NBA player “felt threatened because people swarmed him on the street.”
No one involved was arrested, according to the report.
