Richard Jefferson denies that the Cavaliers are afraid of the Wizards

Richard Jefferson denies that the Cavaliers are afraid of the Wizards

Last week, Bradley Beal said in an interview on CSN Mid Atlantic that the Cavaliers wanted to avoid the Wizards in the second round of the playoffs and insinuated that they “tanked” the second half of the season to avoid such a matchup. The thing is that the Wizards are at home, while the Cavaliers are in the Eastern Conference Finals. After the Cavaliers defeated the Celtics 130-86 on Friday in Game 2, Cleveland veteran swingman Richard Jefferson was asked about Beal’s remarks. Here’s his response, from James Herbert of CBS Sports: "It seems like the teams that are at home now...

Is Tyronn Lue Saving Richard Jefferson for the Finals?

Is Tyronn Lue Saving Richard Jefferson for the Finals?

The Cleveland Cavaliers saved their defensive scheme for the post-season. Are they saving Richard Jefferson for the Warriors? Tyronn Lue and the Cleveland Cavaliers have proven that they are willing to sacrifice in order to protect their game plan. The Cavs defense drew the ire of many on-lookers as they lost multiple games down the stretch of the regular season while giving up elevated point totals to their opponents. Still they stayed their course and stuck to their plan. Despite national ridicule, the Cavs showed no signs of panic. While fans cried out for tangible improvement, the team...

Richard Jefferson fires back at Draymond Green

Richard Jefferson fires back at Draymond Green

Two of the league’s most quotable players are going at it. In a move that should surprise nobody, Richard Jefferson has spoken out about Draymond Green’s comments about the Cavs opponents so far in the playoffs. Green wasn’t impressed by or interested in the Cavs sweeps of the Toronto Raptors and Indiana Pacers. I just watched San Antonio-Houston," he said to Daniel Mano of The Mercury News. "I like to watch good basketball. When you watch Cleveland play, you’re only watching one side of the good basketball. That’s kind of weak. First of all, this has to hurt to hear if you are...

The Cavaliers really wanted the Bucks to win so they didn’t have to practice Friday

Richard Jefferson’s Snapchat: Illuminating, as always Ignore the cadre of Cavaliers beat reporters that tirelessly cover the team; all you really need to know about the state of the Cavaliers is to follow Richard Jefferson on snapchat (seriously though also pay attention to the reporters.) The Cavaliers next series was starting on Monday no matter what, but apparently, the team didn’t have to practice if the Bucks extended the series in Game 6. It...showed in Jefferson’s snapchat story. The Cavs spent the night rooting HARD for the Bucks so they didn't have to practice today (via...

Richard Jefferson snubbed by the Shorty Awards

Richard Jefferson snubbed by the Shorty Awards

The man of the people gets denied that which is rightfully his. If you’re like me, you obsess over the Shorty Awards. As the buzzer sounded last season in game 7, I was left with a sense of emptiness. An emptiness that could have been filled if Richard Jefferson had won a Shorty Award in the same year. Now, it is my unfortunate duty to report to you that he has once again been included from the 2017 winners. For those of you that don’t know, the Shorty Awards honor the best in social media for the year. An area that Jefferson has excelled in over the past year, with his tremendously...
