Richard Jefferson recently mocked himself, recalling how he went against three of the best players in the game and all three ‘cooked' him.

While he was watching some highlights of Michael Jordan going against the New Jersey Nets, dropping 43 points on them and winning the game with his Washington Wizards, Jefferson made a curious point.

He remembered a couple of moments of his career, saying how he had the pleasure of being cooked by Jordan, Kobe Bryant and LeBron James at some point in his 17-year NBA stint.

R.J. played in 1181 games in the association, averaging 12.6 points, 4.0 rebounds and 2.0 assists per game. He shot 46.4 from the field and 37.6 from deep.

Even though he won the NBA championship with the Cleveland Cavaliers in 2016, Jefferson has some other ‘good’ memories from his playing days, and that includes getting in the highlights of MJ, Kobe and LeBron.
