LeBron praises ‘95-year-old’ Richard Jefferson for impressive dunks

Tuesday December 27th, 2016

36-year-old Richard Jefferson stole Christmas with his incredible dunks in the fourth quarter of the Cavaliers’ 109–108 win over the Warriors, and earned some props from LeBron James for his efforts.

The Cavs superstar shouted out the ‘95-year-old’ Jefferson for dunking on Klay Thompson and Kevin Durant in separate throwdowns. It’s true, he’s been playing forever.

It was a legendary fourth for the ancient small forward, and a reminder that anything is possible.

Still, no thank you to Kyrie Irving...
