RJ’s beach volleyball team eliminated in open weekend tournament

Richard Jefferson is staying busy during the lockout.

The Spurs small forward was a part of a group of locked-out NBA players who participated in the International Surf Festival Charles Saikley Six-Man Volleyball Tournament in Manhattan Beach, Calif.

Jefferson was joined by Kevin Love, Jordan Farmar, Luke Walton and David Lee on Team Trim Lords.

Despite the athleticism from the NBA players, Team Trim Lords was eliminated after two losses in Sunday competition in a tournament that was dominated by more conventional beach volleyball players.

The tournament was played under “old school” rules, with the larger court, side-out scoring and net serves counting as points for the opposing team. Easy Reader News.com reports that the tournament was won by Simmzy’s/Beckers,.

Love has talked about playing in several beach volleyball tournaments during the lockout.

I wonder if Jefferson has any interest in joining him to fill a desire for some athletic competition while he can’t play during the lockout?
