Richard Jefferson taunts Tristan Thompson on ESPN
Richard Jefferson’s Takedown of Tristan Thompson
Former Cleveland Cavaliers teammates Richard Jefferson and Tristan Thompson were on ESPN to analyze the NBA Finals between the Miami Heat and Denver Nuggets. During the show, Jefferson teased Thompson about his defense for the Los Angeles Lakers against Nuggets star Nikola Jokic during the Western Conference Finals. Thompson defended himself by saying basketball is a team sport and players win together and lose together.
Thompson’s Career and Goals
Thompson played for Cleveland from 2011 to 2020 and worked out with the Lakers in March before signing with them in April. He was brought on in part because of his veteran knowledge and positive attitude. Thompson has a goal of becoming the next Michael Strahan in his television career.
Thompson compared his situation with the Lakers to his time with the Cavaliers when they signed veteran Dahntay Jones on the last day of the 2015-16 regular season. Cleveland went on to win the 2016 NBA championship.
The Heat and Nuggets open the NBA Finals on Thursday night in Denver. Miami advanced by defeating the Boston Celtics in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Finals to avoid becoming the first NBA team to lose a best-of-seven series after winning the first three games.
