The Basketball player, Richard Jefferson is thinking of retirement for the second time. Will he really retire or change his mind like the first time? All about his personal and professional life

Being retired? Again?

The Cleveland Cavaliers’ player, Richard Jefferson is on about his retirement for the second time. Just last year, Jefferson had decided to say ‘Goodbye’ to his team and had been retired as well but this decision didn’t last long. Soon in three days, Jefferson was back with the team canceling his retirement. Previously, he had to return back to the team to defend the title that they had just received. However, this team couldn’t win back the title. Again, Jefferson is talking about retirement. In the recent episode of his Road Trippin’ podcast, he said:

“I don’t know what I’m about to do next season. The only way I would come back would be if these m—– f—– figure this s— out. Honestly, at the end of the day, coming back alone was not only worth the experience but also worth ‘Road Trippin’,’ man. This s— was cool, man, because we gave fans something that they had never f—ing seen.”

I believe the team wouldn’t want to lose one of its good players at the moment. According to, Jefferson held opposing shooting guards to a PER of 12.0 and kept opposing small forwards to a PER of 16.3. A PER of 15.0 is considered average for a player. Jefferson can be considered as an invaluable piece for Cleveland Cavaliers. Let’s wait until Jefferson confirms about his retirement.

Jefferson was really cruel to leave the bride at the altar, wasn’t he? That bride is his ex-girlfriend, Kesha Nichols. The $2 million dollar wedding was called off at the very last moment and Jefferson didn’t even think it to be important to inform his invited guests. Nichols had informed her guests as soon as the marriage was canceled but Jefferson waited until the last minute to inform his guests. His friends were surely mad at him for informing just before 2 hours. Yes, you heard it right. Just before 2 hours, Jefferson finally decided to inform everyone. According to the news, his friends said:

“He called about two hours before the wedding. It was nuts.  He never showed up at the hotel, but “all his boys were there. He gave his best friend the Black Amex for the night.”

The bride when went to the hotel, she was totally stunned to see the boys even after the cancellation of the wedding. Of course, any bride would be surprised to see the guests after being heart-broken and left by the fiance.

Finally, Jefferson gets married

Now, let’s talk about the girl who Jefferson decided to get married to at last. Her name is Teresa Lourenco. Some of you might have known her already. She is a model who was awarded the name of “Best New Face” and “Best New Generation Model” in 1996. She is the mother of two children. But, don’t be mistaken they are not the babies of Jefferson. Thus no issues for Jefferson now.

Currently, he is single and there is no information about the player’s rumors with someone else.
