Richard Jefferson on Stephen Curry's "champagne" comment
Obviously, walking in the locker room, it’ll be good memories,” Curry told reporters last year. “Hopefully, it still smells a little bit like champagne.”
Jefferson tells the Cavaliers’ “Road Trippin’ Podcast” that he isn’t upset about Curry’s statement, but thinks the two-time NBA MVP’s comments might have caused some problems in an earlier era of basketball.
“RJ,” as Jefferson is known, played with Curry for over a season and says he has a lot of respect for him. However, Jefferson also stated that he isn’t afraid to play physically against Curry if that’s what it takes to win.
I have no disrespect for Steph,” Jefferson said. “I played with the guy, love the guy, I wish him the best. Unless they’re playing against us. Then after that, it’ll be a flagrant foul.”
