Reports: Okafor involved in Boston street fight

Jahlil Okafor, the 76ers' 19-year-old rookie, got into a brawl outside a bar in Boston early Thursday, according to multiple reports

Video of the incident was published by TMZ Sports, which wrote that the fight occurred because Okafor felt he was being heckled from the moment he left the club and felt threatened.

On the video, a man identified as Okafor is seen throwing punches and pushing a man, knocking him down.

The fight occurred after the Celtics beat the Sixers 84-80 Wednesday. The 6-foot-11 Okafor, the No. 3 overall pick in the draft out of Duke, had 19 points and nine rebounds in the game. The fight, according to TMZ, began when someone yelled, "The 76ers (stink)." The man identified as Okafor responded, "We got money you broke (expletive)."

The Sixers are winless in their first 16 games of the season. "We are aware of the report, and we are currently working to gather additional information," Sixers spokesman Michael Preston told the Washington Post. "Until that time, we will have no further comment."
