Although Still a 'Knucklehead', RJ Now Fills Mentor Role Too

Richard Jefferson, self-professed knucklehead, always has a lot to say. It's what makes him who he is. But beneath the banter, Jefferson is increasingly taking on another role as he gets older: mentor to the team's younger players. This summer, in addition to working on his ball-handling, RJ spent some time with both Antoine Wright and fellow Arizona Wildcat Hassan Adams. Both are grateful for the advice.
