Jazz Thabo Sefolosha Says Injury From NYPD ‘Total Abuse of Power’

Published

on

Utah Jazz veteran guard Thabo Sefolosha is speaking out about his experience a few years ago in New York in which he was involved in an altercation with the New York Police Department, which landed him behind bars and with a broken leg that would require surgery and a lengthy recovery.

Sefolosha was allegedly involved in a heated argument with an NYPD officer who was responding to a stabbing incident at popular Manhattan nightclub 1 Oak, something Sefolosha had no involvement with at all but didn’t stop him and the NYPD from colliding.

“It all could have been avoided very easily,” Sefolosha said, according to The Athletic’s Tony Jones. “It was basically a frustrated officer trying to prove a point. He wanted to prove he was the one in power. It was a total abuse of power, in  my opinion. And it was very, very uncalled for.”

Although it’s been a few years, Sefolosha is still angry about what went down.

“It was total B.S.,” Sefolosha said. “They were in the wrong. They violated my rights as a citizen and they violated my rights as a pedestrian. I had to go through a surgery and a rehab because of that. There was no way I was taking a deal. I hadn’t done anything wrong.”

Suns Prefer Ja Morant Over Zion Williamson

The Phoenix Suns could end up with the 1st overall pick for the second consecutive year, depending on how the ping pong balls drop, but landing the #1 overall pick doesn’t mean they are locked in on Duke phenom Zion Williamson.

According to The Athletic’s Sam Vecenie, the Suns actually prefer Murray State point guard Ja Morant, who had an impressive breakout year in 2018-2019, over Williamson.

Morant became the first player in school history to be named a first-team Associated Press All-American.

Point guard is the biggest position of need for the rebuilding Suns, but passing on Zion could mean passing on a bonafide superstar to pair with Deandre Ayton and Devin Booker.

The thought of a frontcourt featuring Williamson and Ayton would instantly elevate the Suns.

Oklahoma City Thunder forward, and MVP candidate, Paul George ruffled the feathers of the Portland Trail Blazers for opting to dunk the ball as opposed to dribbling out the clock in their Game 3 victory.

While George made no friends with the Blazers, who visibly took issue with the dunk, Thunder head coach Billy Donovan had no issue with what took place.

“My feeling was they probably shot a shot,” Donovan said, according to Ben Golliver of the Washington Post. “Paul kind of went in and dunked it. Both teams played the game all the way out.”

George declined to comment on the dunk in the post-game presser.
