Buckner: Blazers F/C Jared Jeffries Pursues Stand-Up Comedy

Steve Mitchell-USA TODAY Sports

Portland Trail Blazers forward/center Jared Jeffries has a budding stand-up comedy career.

Candace Buckner of The Columbian has a fun look at Portland Trail Blazers forward/center Jared Jeffries' budding stand-up comedy career.

When the Blazers' resident funny guy and unofficial team spokesman arrived in Portland, he wanted to get his karaoke fix. He discovered the Boiler Room, and happened to visit on a night that featured open-mic comedy.

"So I walked down there and I loved it," Jeffries recalls, "I always wanted to do it. I was like, 'I can do that!' "

So when the Blazers are in town and have a Monday night off, Jeffries shows off his comic chops to a room full of strangers.

"(Jeffries) performs stand-up?" Blazer rookie point guard Damian Lillard said, expressing shock when told about his teammates clandestine career. "I would pay money to see that!"

No truth to the rumor that he just reads his PER out loud into a microphone.
