On Nov. 5 in Atlanta, I crossed paths with Kevin Willis, the former Hawks standout, who went on to play for the Spurs’ title-winning team in 2002-03. Willis was on a scouting mission similar to mine that night. “It’s just beautiful,” Willis said. “I love seeing him out there. I never saw it coming — I never really saw Tim as a coach. But since it happened, why not? When he’s working with other players, he’s the ultimate teacher.”
Richard Jefferson: My favorite thing to do was to dunk on people. Alonzo Mourning. Chris Bosh. Nenad Krstic. Shelden Williams. Kevin Willis. Mark Madsen. Jonas Valanciunas. I would search those out. When I would see new big men come into the league, my favorite thing was to try and get ’em. I could have an open 3, and I would slow down my pump-fake to pull in a defender just so I could go get that big. Michael Kidd-Gilchrist. Edy Tavares. Klay Thompson. It was just so much fun, and I was extremely blessed to have such a good string of health that it allowed me to do it in latter parts in my career. When I dunked on MKG, I just put him in a body bag, and I was 34 years old.

“This offseason was a lot different for me only because last year, I wasn’t able to even lift a 15, 20-pound dumbbell above my head. “I asked Kevin Willis, ‘How did you stay so long in the league? How did you keep your body the way it was in order to play so many years?’ He said, ‘A lot of it was making sure I did my due-diligence with my body and got all the proper treatments it needed.’ He said in a funny reference, ‘I would eat that iron,’ so he stayed in the weight room and continued to work on his body. From a health standpoint, I feel great. This may be the best I’ve felt coming into a season health-wise.”
