Philadelphia 76ers rookie Jahlil Okafor involved in Boston street fight

Philadelphia 76ers rookie Jahlil Okafor was involved in a street fight in Boston on Wednesday night, a source confirmed to ESPN's Jeff Goodman. TMZ released video earlier Thursday that showed a man it identified as Okafor verbally sparring with several individuals. A scuffle broke out, and the man identified as Okafor is seen punching a man. "Apparently, they said: 'The 76ers suck and you guys are all losers. You'll never win a game,' " a source close to Okafor told Goodman.

Not a pleasant situation for anyone involved.
