BEACHWOOD - Richard Jefferson and Lil Kev spent some time with fans at Beachwood Mall on Thursday. He took photos, signed autographs and addressed the rumors about his retirement.

On Sunday night, after Cleveland Cavaliers won the 2016 NBA Finals, Jefferson said he was retiring. But at Wednesday's parade he told fans he would stick around another year.

At Thursday's event he said he was going to take some time to discuss it with his family. He said he loves Cleveland, but it's too soon to decide if he wants to play another year.

The joke about Lil Kev started earlier in the playoffs when Jefferson spotted a Tommy Bahama ad with a model who resembled Kevin Love.

The joke blossomed from there and Lil Kev became the team’s unofficial mascot.

Throughout the playoffs, Jefferson has chronicled his and Lil Kev’s shenanigans on his Snapchat, RJeff24.
