Jahlil Okafor Has a Sudden Change of Heart on Philly

Updated: June 29, 2015

Jahlol Okafor is having a rough first week in the NBA. First he describes getting drafted by the Sixers as being “jinxed” then he proceeds to throw down his new Sixers jersey like it was a prison uniform and not a NBA uni.

In less than 24 hours after the jersey slamming became a story Okafor has taken to Instagram to let us know he loves Philly. He was spotted hitting the streets with his family, enjoying the cheese steaks and taking selfies with the young bulls.

It’s beyond obvious that Okafor’s heart is in Los Angeles but he has to find something about Philly to love until he can leave Sam Hinkie’s experiment via trade or free agency.

Appreciate all the love from the fans on the streets of Philly. Especially the young bulls! #DrJ #Home

    Thanks for writing this ridiculous article. You really show how stupid some “casual” NBA fans really can be. I hope you realize that there was a video that surfaced showing Jah placing his jersey on to a table, and not throwing it down. I’d really like to know how you came to the conclusion of his heart being in Los Angeles? Find something better to do than writing crispy articles on your false opinion about the 76ers and their players.

    2nd part of my comment because I don’t think I exposed this BS article enough. Maybe you should’ve added how a couple days after being drafted Oka

    Okafor being drafted he was already in the Sixers practice facilities practicing at 6:30 AM before any other player or coach were in the building. Yeah that really

    LA not such an attractive free agent destination this year, is it? Looks like the Sixers will be getting a nice high pick from the Lakers in 2016.

    By the way, your commenting system sucks.. Everytime I write the box closes and makes me post the comment. Everything about this page is BS and pissed me off. You’re just like ESPN
