As a kid who grew up watching the New Jersey Nets, I love seeing how well Richard Jefferson is playing at such an old age. Back in the day, he was an extremely explosive athlete but now he’s more of a role player who can put down the occasional dunk.
However, in a Christmas miracle, RJ turned back the clock against the Warriors. First, he dunked on Kevin Durant.
But he wasn’t done. Just minutes later, he absolutely posterized Klay Thompson.
Obviously, in a game that the whole country was watching, the internet responded quickly to Jefferson’s incredible plays.
I’m not going to lie. These dunks by Richard Jefferson got me crazy hype. We’ll see if he can replicate plays like these throughout the year.
