Okafor is such a movie buff that even when he was playing for Philadelphia he used to come up to New York because of his preferred theater. “I like the iPic Theaters at Fulton Market. That’s where I go. It’s just the best theater I’ve ever been to. Once you compare to that theater that kind of ruins your experience for anywhere else. That’s the only place you want to go,” Okafor said. “The theater is so amazing if I see a movie I want to see it there.”
Okafor has seen most of the Oscar contenders, and offered his hot takes. “I really enjoyed ‘Get Out’ and ‘Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri.’ ‘Get Out’ was just phenomenal. Everybody was crazy. That’s a thriller,” Okafor said. “ ‘Three Billboards was different. I really enjoyed it. ‘Dunkirk’ I didn’t like that much. It got 95 percent on Rotten Tomatoes. It wasn’t what I was expecting. I thought it was more action-packed, but there weren’t any lines. It was just visually appealing more than anything.” He pegged “Get Out” to win Best Picture with “Three Billboards” as his runner up. He said Denzel Washington was “phenomenal” as his Best Actor pick in “Roman J. Israel, Esq.,” and tipped Frances McDormand to win Best Actress for “Three Billboards.”
While Hinkie’s critics acknowledge drafting talent is an inexact science that no team has mastered, an array of agents, executives, owners and former Sixers employees took the greatest issue with his administrative skills. They portrayed him as somewhat of a recluse, not staying in the same hotel when traveling with the team, not cultivating relationships with agents or providing enough oversight of the young rosters he assembled and taking a strong-arm approach to every trade conversation or contract negotiation. “When guys started getting in trouble, there was no structure or adult supervision,” an agent said in reference to Okafor’s reckless driving incident and several bar fights. “He had zero management over the players. They didn’t go to meetings, and they were late for everything.”
