Richard Jefferson spent two full seasons with LeBron James in Cleveland, and by all accounts, the two had and continue to have a great relationship. That does not, however, mean that R.J. has any idea where LeBron is headed this offseason.
Jefferson—like many others—is fed up with all the chatter about LeBron's impending free agency decision. He posted the perfect response to all the questions he has received on his Snapchat Wednesday morning. R.J. jokingly said he was ending his friendship with LeBron so the questions would just stop.

Jefferson signed a one-year contract in Oct. 2017 with the Denver Nuggets. He played in only 20 games, averaging 8.2 minutes, 1.5 points, and 0.8 rebounds per game.
His role took a serious hit after leaving the Cavs. The previous season with Cleveland, he played in 79 games, averaging 20.4 minutes, 5.7 points, and 2.6 rebounds per game. The 38-year-old is currently a free agent.
Jefferson played a key role in the 2016 Finals, in which the Cavs came back from a 3-1 deficit to defeat the Warriors in seven games. He considered retirement after that title, but elected to come back with the Cavs.
