>> the sixers have completely botched the jahlil okafor situation and so have the fans. whether he's traded tomorrow or not the sixers made it impossible for him to be successful. people have to remember he's still a kid. he's only 21 years old. he would only be a junior if he stayed in college. no way a young player can grow and get better without being put in the right environment and get a little bit of consistent see and that's rash less of how talented you are. okafor has gone from starting to coming off the bench to not even traveling with the team all the way back to starting again. that's ridiculous. i really have to commend okafor for how he's dealt with the entire situation much he's been respectful said all the right things and continues to work hard after all this drama he
came in with last year he's done complete 180 and been a great person and teammate this year and for that reason i hope okafor actually does get traded to another team and actually gets the fair shot he deserves. lucy. >> all right, thank you very much sean bell. did you watch it to night right here on fox 29? fox has renewed its musical hit star. you'll see the adventures continue for yet another season until then only three more episodes are left before the season finale which airs wednesday march 15th on fox 2 29. jay-z about to come the first rapper inducted into the song writer's hall of fame.
