In a rare show of an emotion other than being incredulous at every foul call that has ever gone against him, Tim Duncan gave Richard Jefferson a solid shove to claim the courtside traction pad at some point during Game 5, and then sat on the scorer’s table to stare him down afterward.
This probably was just a little friendly hazing between two former teammates, as Jefferson played with Duncan in San Antonio for two and a half seasons from 2009-2012. But the fact that Duncan did this to begin with is of interest, considering it’s in contrast to almost everything we see from him publicly. And Jefferson ignoring the gesture completely just makes the whole thing seem even stranger.
