Jahlil Okafor didn't seem too happy with life at the Philadelphia 76ers, and things have just gotten a whole lot worse for the rookie.

Earlier in the week, footage emerged of Okafor solemnly ambling down to the Sixers locker room after yet another defeat. The 76ers are easily the worst team in the NBA and you can really tell that the former Duke star is struggling to adjust to "The Process."

Street Scuffle

That isn't the end of Okafor's woes, however, as he was caught on video getting in a street fight and punching someone in the face.

According to a report from TMZ, they have footage that appears to show the Philly rookie involved in a skirmish on the streets of Boston on Tuesday night.

The Sixers were in town to take on the Celtics - they lost, because they're the Sixers and of course they did. The report stated that the fight started after someone said, “The 76ers suck” while Okafor, some friends, and a nameless teammate were walking out of a club. Okafor said the reason he reacted was because someone started to get physical with the aforementioned anonymous teammate.

The video starts with the teenage Okafor hilariously yelling, “We got money, you broke-ass n***a. We got money.”

Someone then tries to get in Okafor's face and the two scuffle for a bit, before the six-foot-eleven behemoth cocks his arm and unleashes a punch that knocks a guy to the ground. You can check out a video of the incident here...

In the aftermath of the punch, Okafor tumbles to the ground and someone tries to start punching Okafor in the back of the head. No arrests were made.
