24/7-365. Basketball Lives Here.
Right after Game 7 of the 2016 NBA Finals, Richard Jefferson basically announced his retirement. Multiple sports outlets reported his retirement and some even put out tributes for him. Then at the Cavs Championships parade, Jefferson sort of announced that he’d play one more year. Now, with Cleveland publicly stating their intentions to keep this Championship squad together, Jefferson is actually telling people that he wants to play 2-3 more season.

We were actually surprised and disappointed by the original retirement announcement, especially because R-Jeff clearly has so much game left.
