Richard Jefferson tells great Kobe Bryant story
Kobe Bryant stories never get old and Richard Jefferson told a gem during a Brooklyn Nets game.
Kobe Bryant’s reputation as someone who looked to shoot first and pass second is well noted. He is also known for his chatter with referees. On Tuesday, Jefferson combined them both during a broadcast.
Richard Jefferson with a tremendous Kobe story just now on @NetsonYes: Kobe fouled while releasing ball. Refs unsure whether to call shooting or non-shooting foul. According to RJ, Kobe tells refs, “I haven’t passed the ball all night.” Refs agree, give him the free throws.

Jefferson spent 17 seasons in the NBA, which included court time with some of the biggest names the league has ever seen. One can only imagine the stories Jefferson has at his disposal after such a long career. I can’t wait to hear more.
