TMZ: Jahlil Okafor Knocks Out Heckler

A rep for the 19-year-old Sixers rookie said he felt threatened by the other group. No charges were filed after the fight.

TMZ has posted video of what it says is 76ers’ rookie Jahlil Okafor punching out a man in Boston early this morning.

The website says Okafor, 19, and his friends got into an altercation with a group of Bostonians after someone from that group said, “The 76ers suck!” The Sixers had a nine-point lead in the fourth quarter last night but lost to the Celtics, 84-80.

The altercation took place outside Storyville Boston, a club. Okafor was held back, per TMZ, but then broke free and hit a man in the face. Another man took a swing at Okafor and missed; everyone left the scene and no arrests were made.

A rep for Okafor told TMZ the Sixers rookie felt threatened after someone “got physical” a teammate and that his group was being heckled from the moment they left the club.
