Jahlil Okafor doesn’t seem all that excited about Philly

Screen Shot 2015-06-28 at 1.02.59 PM

Jahlil Okafor appears to be a little bitter over his new home and new jersey. When Okafor was introduced to the Philadelphia media, he was quick to ditch the jersey and get out.

Meanwhile, things look great in Minnesota…

    Sixers are a bad team. You will never hear from Okafor again. On the other hand, KAT will lead the Wolves deep into playoffs

    Supposedly he dropped the jersey to a table not the floor…BUT STILL…disrespectful…the look on his face is nothing but total unhappiness. Goes back to have he was “raised” in college…even for one yr?…Even his answers to the media prior to the draft not nearly as polished as our guys. Stark contrast to our guys handled press conference prior to and after the draft. NBA could not get anymore exciting then this coming year. “Kentucky” I mean Phoenix Suns and Minnesota Timberwolves will soon become the teams to enjoy long overdue success.

      Sorry to rain on your parade mullett, but Duke won the tittle and beat Wisconsin when it counted

      And that has what to do with the NBA or appropriate, professional behavior?

      Duke trolls coming to a UK site for validation. Typical.

      Anybody around here know of any Duke blogs? Or care?

    Sal, giving the devil his due they won the title fair and square, but Okafor is in the NBA now. He is going to make millions so he needs to show some appreciation rather than sulk because he dropped a couple of notches. Besides that he didn’t belong going #1 or 2 because he flourished by hooking all game long every game, because he was too slow to get around people. In fact he should be happy Noel is going to be there swatting away his slow foot speed on defense. That said, I like Okafor. He seems like a genuinely nice person. I liked Winslow too and thought he might go before Okafor.

    It’s widely reported he sent word through his agent he had zero desire to play in Philly. It’s not a big deal, it’s a jersey….. I’ve seen this blown up everywhere but the reality is he’ll play out his contract there, make millions of dollars while stuffing the stat sheet and then move on to a real team. It’s a great fit, he can be the offense along side Noel’s defense and lose every night.

    Towns is in a crappy city with no night life but will be young fun to watch young (+Garnett) team.
