His career average was 12.6 points, 4 rebounds, and 2 assists.
He was never the most important player on a team but he was usually a great, reliable athlete who could get a lot done.
But that pales in comparison to what he’s doing now.

NBA Memes made a humorous – but accurate – observation about Jefferson: he’s the only man in NBA history to reach his prime after retirement.
What has Jefferson been up to lately that makes him so appealing and engaging and exciting to watch?
Jefferson has become one of the most entertaining and fun NBA commentators around.
Whether he’s on ESPN, NBA TV, or Twitter, Jefferson always has some analysis that is both spot-on and very charming.
Unlike some people on social media, Jefferson is legitimately funny and knowledgeable at the same time.
He’s definitely the type of analyst that sports networks should invest time in.
Obviously, his years in the league give him a level of expertise that is hard to match but his personality is always shining and engaging too.
Recently, Jefferson spent time on the sidelines of the Summer League, where he took on a new role: referee.
Jefferson officiated a quarter of a Summer League game, where he learned just how hard it is to make calls for a professional basketball game.
After his quarter blowing the whistle, Jefferson had a newfound appreciation for the hard-working men and women hired as refs for the league.
Hopefully, we will see and hear more of Jefferson and his unique brand of insight in the upcoming season.
