Charlotte, N.C. • Al Jefferson walked through the hallway near the Jazz locker room last night just as Ty Corbin was in the middle of a pre-game interview. The coach and his former player high fives and then Jefferson asked permission to visit with his old teammates in the locker room.
"Only if you don't do nothin' crazy," Corbin said.
Inside, Jefferson found a note from Kanter waiting for him.
"Dear Big Al, My Boy! I'm gonna pump fake you all night. Jeremy said he is gonna dunk on you. Airport was closed but thank you for letting us land on your bed."
The last line is a reference to Jefferson's enormous bed, which he said did not come with him from Utah to North Carolina.
Jefferson got the better of Kanter on the night, scoring 19 points including a couple over the Jazz center.
Kanter and the Jazz, however, pulled out the win.
