VIDEO: Did Jahlil Okafor Drop His Jersey to the Floor After Being Introduced to Media?
Short answer: No.
But upon being introduced to the media on Saturday afternoon, Okafor, J.P. Tokoto and Richaun Holmes were obligated for a photo op holding up their new Sixer jerseys.
NOTE: These were the actual new ones, not bad looking.
After the photo op concluded, Okafor appeared to drop his jersey down to the floor, which sent fans, Twitter and social media into a frenzy:
At first glance, it really does look like Okafor tossed the jersey to the floor and TOTALLY DISRESPECTED it. The way he left the podium, it looks as if Okafor was hoping for a trade to the Lakers or even Kings at this point. Alas, it's only social media. Good job by Kevin Kinkead of CBS Philly to post the full, unedited version to put out any Okafor doesn't want to play here type fires:
Whew, that's a relief.
