Young camp goer attempts to help Jahlil Okafor with his jump shot

Young camp goer attempts to help Jahlil Okafor with his jump shot

Philadelphia 76ers big man Jahlil Okafor took some time out from his day to go help out and teach some kids at the Sixers third annual Camden Youth Basketball Clinic over in New Jersey.

Only he found one youngster who felt the need to help the Sixer with his jump shot.

The young camp goer turned into a critic and wanted to help the NBA player out.

"He's making fun of my jump shot," Okafor tells the CSNPhilly camera guy in the above video.

"His jump shot is messed up," the kid says while demonstrating his shooting motion.

He goes on to point out his wrist action is wrong, as is his guide-arm angle.

The youngster wouldn't be the first to criticize some aspects of Okafor's game but his coach came to his defense last season when it comes to his shooting.

"Look at his form. His form's not broken, and I actually think he is almost a more capable elbow player than we think he is out of the post," Brown said in February.

"Like, he's known because he's a really good post player and so on. I see him having the ability to make 18-foot jump shots."

Asked about LeBron James during Sixers game, Kyrie Irving says @*#^*!#%&*

Apparently, Kyrie Irving doesn't want to talk about LeBron James.

During the Celtics' win over the Sixers on Friday, a fan asked Irving, "Where's LeBron?"

Irving's response ... NSFW ...

WARNING: The video contains offensive language. But if that kind of thing doesn't bother you, you can watch it here.

Irving was asked about the incident by reporters Saturday.

So what he's basically saying is "sorry, not sorry."

With the video circulating on social media, expect Irving to hear from the league.

Joel Embiid expects 90 percent of his tweets to go viral

One of the things that I love about Joel Embiid is the fact that it seems like every day we find another reason to love him even more.

Today's entry comes from a profile in GQ magazine in which he talks about plenty of things. But it was one of the first things he was asked about his Twitter account that had me rolling once again.

How do you find out if one of [your tweet] has gone viral, then?

Joel: I think 90 percent of them [will be viral]. That’s the expectation.

Amazing. The thing is, I don't know if he's giving himself enough credit. ONLY 90%????

Oh, and he subscribes to the Jah Rule school of thought: WHO CARES?

"Then I had so much time, too, because I missed that whole year and the second year after, so I didn’t have anything to do," Embiid said. "[I’d] just go on social media and converse with fans, make crazy jokes, and tweet crazy stuff because I don’t care. I say whatever I want to."

His critique of other players' boring Twitter accounts is also incredibly on point:

What do you mean some guys are always tweeting the same thing?

Joel: Bullshit like, “Game Day!” “It’s a great game.” I don’t know. They’re all the same. It’s boring.

Amen.

The whole Q&A is worth any Sixers fan's time just to get to know a little more about Jojo. Be happy he's ours. And pray he stays healthy so he can take his game on the court to the same level as his game off of it.
