#SaveJahlil, indeed.

The Philadelphia Sixers went down 84-80 to the Boston Celtics on Wednesday night, and rookie big man Jahlil Okafor put hands on some troll who stepped to him on the street after the game.

Okafor had 19 points and nine boards in the Sixers’ 16th consecutive L.

Per TMZ:

It all went down after Okafor and the 76ers lost to the Boston Celtics — Jahlil and some friends went out on the town … and ended up in an altercation in front of Storyville Boston nightclub. […] 19-year-old Okafor was screaming at the other man, “We got money you broke ass n**ga.”


A scuffle ensues — people tried to hold Okafor back — but then he escapes and swings wildly at another man … connecting … and sending him flying to the ground. […] In the melee, Okafor tumbles to the ground and a man in a green jacket tries to punch the 6’11” superstar in the back of the head.


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.”
