What A week in the off the court news it has been for Sixers 1st round pick from Duke Jahlil Okafor. Its Started out Thursday's early morning fight outside of Storyville Nightclub in south Boston hours after Wednesday night’s loss to the Boston Celtics at TD Garden. Then news came out that he had a gun pointed at his head on Oct. 4 near Second and Walnut Street in Philadelphia. Today News Came out that Four sources independently confirmed to The Philadelphia Inquirer the Okafor was pulled over on the Ben Franklin Bridge around three weeks ago for driving 108 miles per hour. Anything over 40 m.p.h. is considered reckless driving.
The Sixers did not not deny The Inquirer's report.
“As an organization, anything like this is concerning,” coach Brett Brown said. “I think the repetitiveness on the announcement exacerbates the problem. It’s like any 19-year-old kid, you are trying to find ways to help him.
“He’s knows he’s made mistakes and we know he’s made mistakes. As an organization we will deal with them as we need to and should.”

Hey Jahlil if you would like to get out of Philly this isn't the way to do it. I know the Sixers suck's but just go out there and play your best I'm sure GM Sam Hinkie is planning some kind of deal to get a good scoring rookie as yourself off the team as the Sixers continue to tank so that someday they can compete when? You ask who knows but as the Sixers would say Trust the Process.....
