Al Jefferson Doesn’t Like To Pay His Bets

dCeltics Timberwolves Basketball

No, Al Jefferson is not evolving into the Pete Rose of the NBA, nor does he has Tim Donaghy’s number on speed dial. We think. But, Jefferson had a bet with his current Minneosta Timberwolves teammate, Sebastian Telfair, if Telfair could dunk a basketball, reports Hoops World. What did the pride of Coney Island do ? Well, Telfair threw the ball off the backboard and dunked it, a la Kenny Smith in the 1992 dunk contest. Well, much like the “ladies” who I have come to my house, Telfair is still waiting for his money. Apparently, Jefferson doesn’t pay people who he can beat up. More from Hoops World:

Amusing Note: Apparently Al Jefferson and Sebastian Telfair had a friendly wager; Al challenged Bassy’s ability to dunk the ball, putting $500 on it. Bassy apparently tossed the ball off the backboard and jammed it home. Bassy openly questioned Al about where his money was; Al responded jokingly “I don’t pay people I can beat up…” Guess Al forgets Sebastian is from Conley Island – they don’t play in Coney Island.
