Jefferson: A little trash talk may work wonders vs. Celtics

Joel Embiid and the 76ers have renewed their intense Eastern Conference rivalry with the Celtics.

What’s the best way to beat the Boston Celtics, who came within a win of reaching the Finals last season?

According to former Cleveland Cavaliers forward Richard Jefferson, the answer may be a little trash talk.

Jefferson was a guest on ESPN program The Jump and indicated if he were playing for the rival Philadelphia 76ers, he would try to poison the minds of he’d ‘poison’ the minds of Jayson Tatum, Terry Rozier, Marcus Smart and other members of the Celtics in an effort to “plant seeds” for a playoff series.

Jefferson was joined by former Tracy McGrady in analyzing the Celtics and Sixers rivalry. Watch what they had to say in the video below.
