FORMER TEMPLE stud Rahlir Hollis-Jefferson spent his first year away from North Broad Street in relaxing fashion for a professional basketball player. He played for AB Contern in Luxembourg, but found enough time to eat his favorite dishes.
Imagine a 215-pounder from Chester, chowing down overseas on pasta and chicken wings, the foods he told reporters he munched on following the Sixers' second Las Vegas Summer League practice Tuesday at the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine.
But at least Hollis-Jefferson came to practice with the right mindset. Unabashed, he spoke on the amazing opportunity to come back to Philly and play for the Sixers, 19-63 record or not.
