Jahlil Okafor is still with the Sixers, despite widespread rumors that he he would be traded by the deadline. With budding superstar Joel Embiid shelved for the rest of the year, Okafor is finally getting some run. To say he needs to turn up the intensity on the defensive end is an understatement.
For an embarrassing 10 second stretch In last night’s game against the Heat, Okafor played possibly the worst defensive possession in modern NBA history. It was undeniably pathetic.
Okafor gets out hustled, doesn’t even try to contest two shots and gets beat to a rebound. It’s an all-around piss poor effort you have to see to believe.
Whatever it is you do in life, just be sure to try harder than Jahlil Okafor does on defense. pic.twitter.com/MY5KDHOGmm
