Via TMZ Sports, Okafor was being taunted outside Storyville Boston nightclub following the Sixers’ 84-80 loss to the C’s that left them at 0-16. Okafor then yelled, “We got money, you broke-[expletive] [N-word].”
The confrontation then turned physical, with Okafor pushing a friend out of the way to punch one of the taunters, falling to the ground in the process.
“We are aware of the report and we are currently working to gather additional information,” the 76ers said Thursday night. “Until that time, we will have no further comment.”
Okafor, selected third overall after leading Duke to a national title last season, is averaging a team-high 18.4 points with 8.1 rebounds in 33.4 minutes per game. But he has not been able to stop Philadelphia’s 26-game losing streak that dates back to last season.
Norman said Bryant started trash-talking during warmups — telling some of the younger defensive backs that he was calling for Norman while Norman was in the locker room — and the controversial receiver continued it when he “popped off” on the game’s second play after an incomplete pass.
“He shouldn’t have ticked off my DBs in pregame,” Norman said (via ESPN). “That took me to a whole other place. Once that happened, you can’t get me fired up [enough]. I’m telling you, I’m going to be at your throat for four quarters every time.”
Added Norman: “The disrespect was through the roof.”
Bryant, who did not talk to reporters after the game, ended up with two catches for 28 yards, despite being targeted eight times. He had just one catch for six yards when being defended by Norman.
Said Norman: “I went Dark Knight on him.”
— Guy Lewis, who coached the University of Houston basketball team for 30 years and guided the “Phi Slamma Jamma” Cougars to back-to-back appearances in the national championship game in 1983 and ’84, died Thursday morning at the age of 93.
His 1983 team lost to N.C. State on Lorenzo Charles’ last-second lay-in, while his 1984 squad was beaten by Patrick Ewing and Georgetown.
Lewis, a member of the Basketball Hall of Fame, also is known for helping to lead the integration of college basketball in the South by recruiting Elvin Hayes and future Celtics guard Don Chaney to Houston in the mid-1960s.
