This is exactly what I was getting at yesterday in regards to the alcohol. Not going to assume or be naive but you have to wonder what exactly is going on when he's going out to the clubs. I honestly wonder what teams do to monitor their younger players. Jah is only 19, I tend to forget that these are just kids
Both incidents involved Okafor being in establishments where alcohol was being served. He won't legally be permitted to consume alcohol until he turns 21.
"We can’t put our head under a rug, and play holier than thou," Sixers coach Brett Brown said of the situation. "It’s all part of growing up. And it’s my job to help him. And that part of it, if it’s true, of course, it’s concerning."
Being in places that serve alcohol, lack of team security present and being heckled by fans has proven to be a bad combination. That's especially true when some might view Okafor as an easy target on a Sixers squad that is always ridiculed for its constant losing.
