Richard Jefferson turned Kay Felder into the ‘world’s tallest Oompa Loompa’

Cavs veteran Richard Jefferson engaged in a brilliant form of self-promotional rookie hazing on Wednesday. 

Jefferson is up for some kind of social media honor called the Shorty Awards because his Snapchat is easily the best in the NBA. In order to boost his candidacy, Jefferson had rookie point guard Kay Felder dress up like a Willy Wonka Oompa Loompa before Cleveland’s game against the Pacers.
