Former Spur Richard Jefferson hasn't forgotten his short time with the team or living in the Alamo City.

Jefferson played for the Spurs from 2009-12. It's clear that short period didn't endear Jefferson to the land of breakfast tacos and margaritas.

During a recent interview with Men's Health magazine, Jefferson didn't mince words about his time in San Antonio.

"Worst place I had to play? Well, San Antonio is a dump.San Antonio fans just hate me no matter how many nice things I say about them and I am really getting to the point where I am like 'Screw off'." Like dude, I can only say so many positive things about you before you all keep killing me."

He added another jab later in the video when he described Milwaukee as "Like San Antonio, but with bad weather."

Jefferson left the team in 2012 when he was swapped to Golden State for Stephen Jackson.
