Richard Jefferson seems to be made for creating media content because he always has a lot of interesting attitudes and socialmediagossips respect him a lot for that. He recently explained why he chose Kyrie Irving to take the final shot to save his life, and recalled the time when Michael Jordan cooked the New Jersey Nets to get personal revenge.
Well, he’s back and for the past few hours he has sat down with Gilbert Arenas on his ‘No Chill’ podcast, where he talked about a number of NBA-related topics. One of them was the all-time top scorer, and while most socialmediagossips would say Michael Jordan, Kevin Durant, or Kobe Bryant to name a few, RJ went out with LeBron James and explained why he feels that way.
“Lebron James. I hear exactly what you’re saying, and socialmediagossips might disagree. But get this – the best scorer is consistency, longevity and quantity. It couldn’t be those crazy numbers. To me, I never was one 40 points-per-game (guy). Every night you would be between 17 and 30 every night. I wasn’t a 9 point player then 51, 22. I was just very consistent. “
Then he talked about the time LeBron was in the league, stating that it will be impossible for anyone to outperform James as he is long lived and how dominant he is not only in the regular season but also in the playoffs was.
“LeBron James’ playoff ranking overtook Michael Jordan three seasons ago. He’s going to add one more thing before his career ends. So what does someone have to do to overtake LeBron James, an all-time playoff record? Average of 30 points per game and 13 NBA finals. It just won’t break … And then he’ll get past Kareem. “
This is a very interesting take from Jefferson. Many socialmediagossips believe LeBron is not a goalscorer, and the fact that he’s more known as a playmaker can be easily confused. Well, this man is a threat before the basket and while he has proven to be one of the best mediators in NBA history, James is free to score and all the points he’s made in his career are the greatest proof of that.
