SURPRISE, SURPRISE! JAH OKAFOR BLAMES SIXERS FOR HIS FAILURE!

Jahlil Okafor hasn’t played in four of the five games since his acquisition, with that lone appearance likely contributing to him being shelved. He logged 22 ½ minutes Friday, and was visibly winded over the final six-plus minutes.

“You don’t really know where you stand. Playing against one of the best teams in the East was a good [test],” said Okafor, 22. “A lot of the guys are in midseason form, where I feel like I’m at the start of the season because I haven’t really played. … I have to catch up to a lot of guys.

“That’s why I’m happy I’m here with the actual NBA coaching staff that’s taking care of me every day. When I was in Philly I was figuring it out on my own. I had my own trainer [Rick Lewis] that I’ve been working with since eighth grade working me out. But it’s a different level when you’re actually working with an NBA staff.”
