Former Spurs forward Richard Jefferson calls San Antonio a ‘dump’
Former San Antonio Spurs forward Richard Jefferson says San Antonio is a “dump.”
Jefferson played 203 games for the Spurs. The now NBA analyst says San Antonio fans hate him no matter what, so he’s done trying to be nice to them.
“Worst place I had to play? Well, San Antonio is a dump,” Jefferson said, via Jeff Garcia of Spurs Zone. “San Antonio fans just hate me no matter how many nice things I say about them and I am really getting to the point where I am like, ‘Screw off.’
“Like dude, I can only say so many positive things about you before you all keep killing me.”
Richard Jefferson averaged 11.2 points with the Spurs. During his time in San Antonio, it did not work out the way many hoped and it wasn’t a great fit basketball-wise.
If you recall, Hall of Famer Charles Barkley also isn’t fond of San Antonio and their women. Nevertheless, the people of San Antonio will disagree with Jefferson and Barkley. It’s safe to say you won’t be seeing Jefferson covering any Spurs games anytime soon. The former high-flyer is a studio analyst for ESPN and does most of his work outside of covering games.
