Game 7 of the 2016 Finals will go down as one of the best, if not the best, game in NBA Finals history, and Richard Jefferson had a front row seat to the incredible ending, from LeBron’s legendary chase down block, to Kyrie’s dagger, title-winning three.
In a recent interview with The Player’s Tribune, RJ recalled what was going through his head during the final possessions of the game – with aid of plenty of explicit language – and it’s a must watch.
He was on the bench when he LeBron got the chasedown, and was subbed in before their final offensive possession when Kyrie hit the game-winner. His description of both are more entertaining than any other analysis of the plays that you’ve ever heard. The game was heart stopping for fans, but living it is a whole other experience.
Watch it here. Also, earmuffs.
