Utah Jazz F Richard Jefferson made it known in a recent radio interview that he feels that he has 2-3 more years left when it comes to his NBA career and that he will have no loyalty to whomever signs him.  His only mission at this point is to win an NBA Championship.  

"I want to play for a championship team," he said. "I want to win a championship.  I've come that close. People think just the NBA, but I'll take it back a little further for you. I lost in the [NCAA] national championship game. Then I went to the Olympics and lost to a quality Argentina team and won a bronze medal.  Then I lost in two NBA finals. I wan to win.  

If I get an opportunity to play for a championship team, I'm going to go hunting for that.....I have no loyalty.  I'm not one of those guys that played for the same team for 15 years like a Reggie Miller who has to decide whether or not he's going to do that.  No.  I'm a gun for hire."
