Richard Jefferson has often caught the attention of NBA fans with the crazy things that come out of his mouth with bold NBA takes. However, this week, the former player-turned-analyst has to clear something up after he was accused of doing something sexually to a co-host.
Jefferson was accused of inappropriate behavior toward fellow analyst Chiney Ogwumike on Live TV. Recently, an NBA fan shared a video showing Jefferson appearing to smack his co-host on the booty.
As she walked away from him on set, Jefferson made a gesture that he was going to smack her on the butt.
The 42-year-old denied the whole thing while explaining he loved his job too much to engage in that type of behavior.
You can clearly see above that nothing actually happened. If so, Jefferson would’ve been suspended and possibly fired by ESPN by now.
Back in 2018, Jefferson announced his retirement from the NBA at the age of 38. The 13th overall pick in the 2001 draft, the Arizona product spent the first seven years of his career with the New Jersey Nets, helping the team reach back-to-back NBA Finals in his first two seasons.
The 6’7″ forward suited up for eight franchises during his 17-year career, helping five reach the playoffs. He played in 12 postseasons.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
