Memphis Grizzlies rookie Ja Morant called out those players that took issue with the conditions, saying that he wasn’t a “silver spoon guy” and that the options have been fine. Redick agreed with that assessment on Sunday during his media availability with reporters. “Getting outside and golfing yesterday was key. The bubble life has been fine. I think Ja Morant said it best: The hotel is fine, the food is fine, everything is fine. We’re here to play basketball, to further our mission. We have a responsibility and a job to do. It’s fine.”

Superstar LeBron James took on a ton of hate for leaving the Cleveland Cavaliers to join the Miami Heat 10 years ago. In an interview with Taylor Rooks of Bleacher Report, New Orleans Pelicans veteran J.J. Redick explained how James’ decision drew hate because he was a powerful black man making a consequential choice for himself.

New Orleans Pelicans star and former Duke standout JJ Redick talked to Good Morning America on Monday about his decision to play. “For each individual guy, I think it is a very personal decision,” Redick told GMA’s Robin Roberts. “I think also for me and a lot of guys, what basketball represents is normal. What so many Americans want is some return to normal. I know in bringing back sports there’s a component of normalcy for the fan. That’s important for us as players. We want to go back to our livelihood and the thing we love doing and we want to give the fans something to watch.”

Though Redick had never met Williamson prior to this season, the former Duke Blue Devil had heard great things from those around Williamson last year on campus. Once Redick eventually met Williamson, he was blown away by his demeanor and character. Speaking with Bill Simmons on his podcast, Redick once again had good things to say about Williamson and believes he is on track to enjoy great success throughout his NBA career. My first impression of him is I have never met a 19- or 20-year-old who is that famous, and that famous from such a young age, who is so level-headed. Like, he’s not an [expletive]. He doesn’t have a big head. I think the biggest thing for him is just learning to develop the right habits but I have no doubt that he is going to do that.

Adding fuel to the rumor mill most recently were podcast host Bill Simmons and Pelicans guard JJ Redick, who revealed what they were hearing about the Lakers’ secret workouts on the latest episode of Simmons’ eponymous podcast: Simmons: Have you heard, there’s this L.A. rumor right now and I haven’t been able to crack it, of all the Lakers are playing at some rich guy’s house. And it’s all like ‘nobody talk about this,’ but have you heard about different rumors, and what teams are doing, and all that? Are you expecting people to show up (to Orlando) out of shape? What do you think? Redick: All right, so in regards to the Lakers, I’ve heard similar things. Obviously nothing has been posted on social media providing us with the evidence that we need, but there is a gentleman, I think his house is in Bel-Air, who has a Staples Center replica in his backyard. It’s a full court, locker rooms, weight rooms, steam shower, whatever you want. I’ve worked out there before. My assumption is those guys are working out there, that would make a lot of sense.

On the latest episode of The JJ Redick Podcast, the former LA Clippers guard was joined by Malcolm Brogdon to discuss his thoughts on the state of the country and the NBA’s return later this summer. Additionally, Redick shared a story about how hard he tried to convince LA’s front office to take a chance on Brogdon in the 2016 NBA Draft. “The very first time I met you was after the Clippers and Bucks played your rookie year,” Redick said. “And I came over to you in the hallway and I was like, ‘Hey man, I just wanted to let you know that for the two months leading up to the draft, I was telling everybody in the Clippers’ front office that we should draft you at 25.'”

A native of Roanoke, Virginia, Redick couldn’t turn down an offer from coaching legend Mike Krzyzewski and was a four-year starter, averaging 19.9 points per game during his career. “I almost did go to UVA. Basically, Duke was my dream school. I had wanted to go there since I was 8 years old,” Redick said during his latest podcast episode with Tommy Alter. “As I was in high school and playing for Boo Williams, I realized UVA would be a great option, too. I took a couple campus tours, unofficial visits or whatever.”
“I get back to Virginia and I’m supposed to go to Florida with my sister. My parents weren’t even going with me. It was their Midnight Madness. David Lee and I were friends. He was coming down from St. Louis. This weekend is going to be awesome. And then by like Tuesday night, I was like ‘man I don’t even want to go.’ The Duke thing was so heavy on me. So I was like ‘I’m just going to commit.’ I wanted to get the commitment out of the way and just enjoy the last two seasons of my high-school career so I committed that Wednesday to Duke. I got on the phone with Coach K and told him I was coming. If I had went to Gainesville, who knows?”
Speaking on “The JJ Redick Podcast” on The Ringer, the Pelicans sharpshooter revealed what he’s heard about the NBA’s proposed schedule format. “The scenario I’ve heard…the top six teams are basically locked. Those seeds are locked. And they basically…they either scrimmage or play games that don’t mean anything. And then seeds seven through 11 or seven through 12 in both conferences play for seeds seven and eight,” Redick explained.

Though NBA commissioner Adam Silver, Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti and Walt Disney Co. executive chairman Bob Iger appear — Garcetti describes his phone call to Sterling soon after the scandal broke as “one of the most bizarre talks I’ve ever had” — the film is anchored by interviews with Rivers and former players on the 2014 team including Chris Paul, JJ Redick, DeAndre Jordan and Matt Barnes. (Times staff writer Dan Woike also appears.)

JJ Redick believes Carmelo Anthony froze him out during the 2002 Jordan Brand Classic. The New Orleans Pelicans guard discussed the situation during The JJ Redick Podcast, noting it was payback after winning the MVP award at the McDonald’s All-American Game earlier that year. “What was told to me by two different guys on the team was that Melo was going around telling people JJ’s not getting the MVP again. I’m taking every shot,” Redick said (h/t Oleh Kosel of The Bird Writes). “If you look at the box score, I’m just saying. I’m just saying.”

Redick seemed to question the fit of some of the supporting pieces around the two stars, though. “The numbers kinda say that, when they’re on the court together, they do pretty good: 2018, pretty good (for reference: +15.5 net rating); 2019, pretty good (+7.9 net rating); 2020, still pretty good, but not as good (+0.9 net rating), right?” Redick said. “I don’t think they’re changing, so maybe the people around them are changing. That, to me, just goes back to the right fit and the right pieces. “I think that they (Embiid and Simmons) can fit together, for sure,” Redick concluded.
