Jefferson’s debut in the booth, in the Nets blowout of the Cavs, was a tour du force. And just as Kidd would toss R.J. some easy-to-handle balls, Eagle did the same. When Eagle mentioned during the Cavs game, Jefferson’s debut, that the Nets were playing the Knicks next, R.J. recalled with glee what it was like to play the New Yorkers during the Kidd era. “Do you understand what we used to do to the Knicks back in the day?,” he said. “We used to destroy them and then destroy their city after the game.”
After a 17-season career that began with the Nets in 2001, Jefferson is launching his broadcasting career with the YES Network this season, working primarily as a game analyst. “I’ve been doing little different things” said Jefferson. “I’ve done podcasts. I’ve done some radio stuff. But I’d never called a game before, and when the Nets signed me I really thought I’d be in studio more than games, and (YES producer) Frank (DiGraci) had a different idea.”
