Philadelphia 76ers Jahlil Okafor attended the 16th Annual Sixers Beach Bash Party event that happened on August 1st at Jack’s Place on Ocean Drive in Avalon. This was a great opportunity for fans of the team to get a chance to see some of the players in a relaxed and fun environment, and Okafor was there in the company of his teammate Robert Covington as well. A couple of former stars such as World B. Free and Darryl Dawkins went too, and the players took the time to meet with fans and give out autographs. This was especially exciting for the kids who went, as it was a beautiful day to hang out with the stars they idolize during the basketball season.
The Chicago, Illinois native got his foot in the door to the basketball world when he played for Duke University, where he stayed for just one season before entering the 2015 NBA Draft. He was selected as the 3rd overall pick by the 76ers and is currently gearing up for his first professional season this year. The 2015 NCAA Champion also earned the USBWA National Freshman of the Year and the 2015 Pete Newell Big Man awards this year.
Okafor attended the 16th Annual Sixers Beach Bash Party at the start of August in order to meet with some of the loyal Philadelphia fans and get them pumped up for another great basketball season.
