Kevin Love with awesome goodbye to Richard Jefferson


during the Cleveland Cavaliers 2016 NBA Championship victory parade and rally on June 22, 2016 in Cleveland, Ohio.

There’s a reason the Cavaliers kept bringing Richard Jefferson back — he was beloved in the locker room. He made some plays, too (you can’t have enough wing defenders if the target is Golden State), but it was chemistry that mattered most. Eventually, the finances caught up with the Cavaliers — they traded Jefferson to the Hawks in a salary dump — but if there was a way they would have kept him.

You could get a sense of that locker room love Kevin Love’s goodbye to RJ, put on Instagram.


That is awesome.

It’s that locker room leadership that has the Bucks chasing Jefferson hard.
