Richard Jefferson's got jokes.

The Cleveland Cavaliers' elder statesman made sure to rib a certain trio of teammates following Sunday's 125-120 win over the Los Angeles Lakers.

Jefferson, 36, needed a nap so badly that he (uncharacteristically) didn't leap at the opportunity to rave about the benefits of practicing yoga.

"That's how you know how tired I am ... It was a back-to-back - for some of us," he told reporters postgame.

Of course, he was referring to stars LeBron James, Kyrie Irving, and Kevin Love, who were all held out of Saturday's loss to the Los Angeles Clippers to rest. Meanwhile, despite basically being 95 years old, RJ logged 57 minutes over both contests.
