Video Appears To Show 76er Jahlil Okafor In Street Fight

"We got money," the NBA star yelled before shoving a man to the ground.

Philadelphia 76er Jahlil Okafor was apparently not in good spirits after losing Wednesday night's game to the Boston Celtics.

In video shared by TMZ, a man identified as NBA star Okafor is seen outside a Boston nightclub assaulting an unidentified man.

"The 76ers suck," says the man.

"We got money," says the man, who appears to be Okafor, in response.

The video then cuts to Okafor knocking the man to the ground while another man holds him back, and cuts again to Okafor and others scuffling in the street while a security car honks. 

76ers public relations director told The Huffington Post, "We are aware of the report and we are currently working to gather additional information. Until that time, we will have no further comment."

A rep for Okafor told TMZ that the 76er was being heckled as he exited a club and felt threatened by people swarming him.
