Richard Jefferson recently performed a very noble deed: He donated $3.5 million to his alma mater, the University of Arizona. The money will be used to help finance a new practice facility, and Jefferson will have the option of slapping his name on the building.

This past weekend, a bunch of guys who played for Lute Olson at the U of A (Miles Simon-yes, he’s alive!-, Gilbert Arenas, Richard Jefferson, and Jason Terry, just to name a few) met up for a run.

Gil, who had taken a few playful shots at his former college teammate in his latest blog post, let the world know what he thinks of Jefferson’s enormous donation to the school after the game:

“He had to put his name on the gym because no one was going to remember him,” Arenas said. “I told him that seven out of 10 people don’t remember what jersey he wore.”
