For the Cavaliers, Le Bron James and Kyrie Irving are clearly on a tier of their own.
But the next-most-consistent player in terms of overall contribution has arguably been none other than Richard Jefferson.

You really need to go back a few years to understand how surprising his resurgence has been.
It's only after looking at his entire career that one realizes how surprising this stretch of smart, team-oriented play really has been.
Over the course of his 35 years, veteran forward Richard Jefferson has seen a little bit of everything – both on and off the court. In 14 NBA seasons – after being taken with the 13th overall pick in 2001, after leading his Arizona Wildcats to the NCAA title game – Jefferson has played in over 1,000 career games, competed in the Slam Dunk Contest, the Summer Olympics and the NBA Finals.
In his 14th season, last year in Dallas, he led the Mavericks in three-point shooting.
At age 14, Teresa Lourenco left home and moved to Hamburg, Germany with her mother to begin her modeling career.
In 1996, she ended up winning a Paris fashion award for “Best New Face.” She has since gone on to win an International Design Award as the best new generation model, as well as working for Tommy Hilfiger, Victoria’s Secret, Valentino, Gap, and Christian Dior.
Jefferson can't really create for himself anymore, as he's not as explosive as he used to be, but has learned when to cut, still has a good first step and is strong.
He's burned Draymond Green on straight-line drives and punished him for playing him loose, something Kevin Love simply can't do.
His impact is only amplified by a Cavaliers' bench that has struggled greatly to contribute and Love's struggles defending anyone on the Warriors' roster in space. Jefferson was first considered an athlete who benefited from playing with Jason Kidd, then a player putting up empty stats on bad teams before becoming one of the few high-profile failures the Spurs had.
On the rare occasion in which Jefferson looks like a poor man's Iguodala, it's only because the ineptitude of some of his teammates makes him shine. The following years had him playing the part of journeyman collecting a check on mediocre teams.
Jefferson is shooting only 20 percent from beyond the arc, but a ridiculously high 68 percent on two-pointers.
