I wasn't gonna post this but two tears in a bucket! This is where I'm at with it. Lol So I'm gonna ride #myJefferson out until the "Rona" kicks rocks! For those of you that don’t know I have cut my own hair my whole life so it’s been hard not to put the clippers to it but when I look back at these pics I will remember the Rona! Lol Fish don't fry in the kitchen, beans don't burn on the grill, took a whole lotta tryin, just to get up that hill, now we're up in the big leagues, getting our turn at bat, as long as we live, it's you and me baby, there ain't nothing wrong with that"!

This is brave of Allen. He didn’t have to show us this side of him.

He also didn’t have to put LeBron and several retired players (Richard Jefferson, Carlos Arroyo, Richard Hamilton, Carlos Boozer, Shaquille O’Neal, Stephon Marbury, Damien Wilkins, Jermaine O’Neal) on blast like this.
