Just when it looked like Jahlil Okafor and the Philadelphia 76ers were going to move on from his street fight in Boston early Thanksgiving morning, a second video from the rookie's scrap has hit the Internet.
On Wednesday, TMZ Sports obtained another exclusive clip showing the third-overall pick in the 2015 NBA Draft on the offensive, chasing down and throwing punches at a heckler on the street outside of a nightclub.
The video ends with the heckler clutching his eye on the ground and his friend saying he needs the ambulance while Okafor is restrained by one of his own friends.
Immediately after the news of the fight broke last week, it was reported that Okafor's victim suffered a serious eye injury and that Boston police were investigating. Still, though, no charges have been filed against the rookie center.
Okafor already apologized via a string of tweets Sunday and on Monday it was reported that the incident came three weeks after he was stopped for reckless driving after reportedly doing 108 miles per hour on Philadelphia's Ben Franklin Bridge. There was even a report that Okafor tried to use a fake ID to get into a Philly bar but was denied, although the center denied those allegations.
The Sixers have seemingly responded to all this by hiring a security guard to follow their prized rookie around.
With Okafor leading all NBA rookies in scoring, he's worth the extra attention.
