Last week, Rockets guard Chris Paul was a guest on The JJ Redick Podcast and the former teammates discussed the Commissioner’s comments (you should seriously listen to the whole episode). Redick revealed the following: Bob Myers — Golden State GM — he was my agent when I first came out (of college). I remember my second year when I wasn’t playing a lot, we had a bunch of late night conversations — me venting to him. And I remember something that stuck with me ever since. “He said to me, he’s like, ‘We represent 50-something clients — I would say five are happy.’
He’s like, ‘Even the guys who are making a ton of money and taking 20 shots a game…’ He had a client at the time who takes 20 shots a game and he just signed a huge deal — like four (years) for $50 (million) extension and he’s unhappy. “He’s like, ‘I have maybe three or four clients that are legit happy.’ I kind of agree with that assessment. Think about how many guys in the league on a day-to-day basis are really, really enjoying it.”
Embiid and JJ Redick spoke at the podium together afterward. Asked for their reactions to Simmons’ shot, Redick initially answered that he wasn’t shocked by it. “You sure?” asked a smirking Embiid. “I was getting ready to run the play and I just literally saw the ball go over (my head). And I was like, ‘Oh shit,’” Embiid later said. “He caught me off guard. And I’m in a position, like, ‘What just happened?’ But I thought it was in. It was in and out. I wish he would’ve made it but he’s been working on it. Every day we tell him, ‘Got to shoot it.’”
