Richard Jefferson played two seasons with the Cleveland Cavaliers alongside LeBron James. He was part of the bench mob that helped “King James” win Cleveland’s first championship in 50 years. Although “RJ” was nearing the end of his career with the Cavaliers, he still played a key role for the team.
Jefferson played in the NBA for 17 seasons, played for eight teams, and earned $115 million. He’s not one of the highest-paid former players, but life has been good to him.
The former NBA player also hosts “Road Trippin'” with Allie Clifton and former teammate Channing Frye. When Clifton asked him what he did with his life, Jefferson replied:
“You know what? I’m walking around and enjoying the damn life. I work too hard and pay too many people and it stresses me out. I want to walk around and smell the flowers.
“There are some tasks I like to do myself. I don’t mind washing the car, hanging out at Starbucks. I don’t mind this. But am I going to clean the toilet and do the laundry? No!”
LeBron James’ former teammate ended his answer with this advice:
“If you can work hard and reach a certain financial status, the first thing you should do is eliminate household chores.
While Ellie Clifton and Channing Frye laughed at Richard Jefferson’s answers, “RJ” kept a straight face. Most people would think he was just kidding basketball fans, but who knows if that’s what he does in life.
Two of LeBron James’ former teammates believe Stephen Curry will win fifth championship before retiring
When the NBA kicks off in October, Stephen Curry will be entering his 15th season. The Golden State Warriors superstar is already 35 years old and has dealt with a lot of injuries.
The Golden State Warriors were eliminated by LeBron James and the Los Angeles Lakers and failed to defend the 2022 championship. The additions of Chris Paul, Dario Saric and Cory Joseph have revitalized the Warriors. Rookies Trayce Jackson-Davis and Brandin Pozzimski also join the mix.
However, competition has also improved. James’ Lakers could have made the best changes of the offseason, and the Phoenix Suns are arguably stronger than last season.
Still, Richard Jefferson and Channing Frye haven’t lost hope of Stephen Curry winning a fifth championship:
(: 22 points)
“Don’t know if that’s the case this year. … He (Curry) has three or four years left as a major player, No. 1 because of his skill set.”
“He always has a chance. When you get Steph and Klay, Wiggins comes back and hopefully their bench is a little better, has better chemistry. He has a chance. I can’t count him out. You can “never count him out. “
LeBron James’ former teammate may no longer be willing to do his usual chores, but he’s proud of his job as an analyst. He thinks Curry will win a fifth championship before calling it a career.
