Richard Jefferson never misses a chance to troll former teammate LeBron James and shared a hilarious video doing just that.
Richard Jefferson was an accomplished NBA player well before he teamed up with LeBron James on the Cleveland Cavaliers. But it took until 2016 for the former 2001 No. 13 overall pick to win his first NBA title.
James and company pulled off the heroic 3-1 comeback over the Golden State Warriors and Jefferson finally reached the NBA mountaintop. He has since launched a nice media career thanks to a charismatic personality.
One thing Jefferson also loves to do is troll James. He shared a video on Twitter, from another user, that did just that.

That video is amazing. James took a poke to the eye against the Phoenix Suns in Game 2 and fell to the floor in agonizing pain. Plenty of NBA fans thought it was all an act, so why not give him an Oscar for it?
James should also be able to find the humor in that video. There is just so much going on and it is genuinely hilarious throughout. Seeing the footage fade into the announcement is simply too much.
Jefferson is probably one of the few players who could get away with poking so much fun at James. He is in fact older, so that helps a bit.
Jefferson and Channing Frye were two veterans on that Cleveland team that finally ended the city’s title drought. They brought a calm presence and some much-needed humor into a locker room featuring James, Kyrie Irving, and Kevin Love.
James has heard all the criticism about his flopping in the past. All he cares about now is leading the Los Angeles Lakers to another championship.
