Jahlil Okafor is having a rough couple months in the NBA off the court. First getting held at gunpoint, then beating up a heckler in Boston, and now reports of getting pulled over while going 108 MPH over the Ben Franklin Bridge in Philadelphia.
“Four sources independently confirmed to The Inquirer the 76ers center 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.”
Philadelphia coach Brett Brown acknowledged the string of unfortunate events in a recent press conference.
“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.”
Hopefully the young rookie can figure out how to deal with being an NBA player with millions of dollars. Because if he doesn’t soon, the future does not look bright.
