RJ: Straight Shooter?


Rumors abound that he may be funny. Not funny ha-ha, funny queer. Nevertheless Richard Jefferson is playing unbelievable basketball right now.


Ironically, this was the first season that Nets fans (being that I make up 12.5% of them, I feel comfortable speaking for Nets fans) had given up hope that Jefferson would ever graduate from world-class 3rd banana to All-Star. He has scored 25.8 and led the Nets in scoring every game thus far. His shooting has been the biggest difference. He is hitting over 50% from the floor and making half of his threes. He is also 34 for 35 on the free throw line. Obviously it's waaaaaaaaay early. However if those shooting improvements are even partly for real, the Nets suddenly become a very dangerous team...


...provided that they finally give up on Jason Collins. Heavens to Betsy, the man has played 22 minutes a night and is averaging 0.5 points and 2.8 rebounds! He has 1 assist and has yet to block a shot on the season. To call Collins worthless would be to imply that he has no value. That would be overstating what he does for the Nets. Every time he steps on the court, points are being thrown in the garbage. He has to have pictures of RJ and Lawrence Frank making out. Otherwise Frank would be divvying up his minutes between Jamaal Magloire and Josh Boone and maybe even seeing what Sean Williams brings to the table.

Being that one my FEMALE cousins dated him, I am going to have to call out the writer on this one for shoddy investigative reporting...
