There can be a heavy dose of expletives in some of Rivers’ speeches but Redick believes some of his maxims may become viral and even fashionable in the future. “Someday,” Redick said. “Maybe 50 years from now, there will be T-shirts and Instagrams with Doc Rivers’ quotes.” ESPN.com

After being sidelined with a left quad contusion for two weeks, Los Angeles Clippers guard J.J. Redick has returned to practice and is expected to play in the preseason game against the Sacramento Kings on Friday. "My assumption is Friday would be a go," Redick said Tuesday. "There might be some minutes restrictions but there was no residual soreness from yesterday so I should be a go." ESPN.com

The feud started, as these things often do, with a Tobacco Road rivalry. A fight at Michael Jordan's camp followed, as did an injury scare. But when J.J. Redick joined the Los Angeles Clippers in July to become Chris Paul's new backcourt mate … well, both Redick and Paul knew it was finally time to end their dislike of each other. "We have actually had a chance to become real close, real quick," Paul told Yahoo Sports. "Who would have thought after the battles we had in college." Said Redick: "We connected right away." Yahoo! Sports

The rivalry between Paul and Redick began when they both played in the Atlantic Coast Conference at schools just a 90-minute drive from each other: Redick starred at Duke from 2002-06 and Paul was at Wake Forest from 2003-05. "We had some battles at Wake Forest," Redick said. "The game I kind of got into it with him our team had like three or four technicals." Said Paul: "Before I got to know him he was no friend of mine. It is what it is. But that's how it was in college." Yahoo! Sports

Playing for Rivers, one of the most respected coaches in the NBA, also fits Redick’s résumé. His high school coach, Billy Hicks, is one of the winningest in the state of Virginia. He spent four years with legendary Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski and another five seasons with Stan Van Gundy in Orlando. “I feel so fortunate to have great coaching,” Redick said. “Coaches that have taught me great habits and taught me great things about basketball and life, but I’ve always played for coaches who have held me accountable and that’s made me a better player and person. And I expect the same with Doc.” NBA.com

Q: Doc, you've been a part of big splashes before, and I have to imagine that as Chris (Paul) and those guys were introduced (at the Wednesday press conference in Los Angeles) that the presser with KG crossed your mind at some point. Does this experience remind you of that one at all in terms of the major makeover and instant expectation? Doc Rivers: "Well, Chris is going to be a Hall of Famer, and so should Blake (Griffin) and DJ (DeAndre Jordan), hopefully, but we were getting (surefire future Hall of Famers). Paul was and Ray and Kevin are, so in that terms, that day is bigger just because of those three guys. You just don't bring those three guys together very often. This was neater in one way in that it was more about the key guys, signing Chris back, bringing Matt back, and getting Darren Collison and JJ Redick and Jared Dudley, it's more that we're building this team, and that was a great message … I couldn't have asked for a better day."

The Los Angeles Clippers' acquisition of J.J. Redick and Jared Dudley could impact whether Chauncey Billups and Matt Barnes return. Billups started all 22 regular-season games he played at shooting guard for the Clippers last season.
