JJ Redick on Kawhi Leonard’s game seven buzzer beater: So I was on the bench, and I sort of had that perfect angle, because I sort of, as soon as the ball had come in bounds, I sort of walked onto the baseline, not on the court, but onto the baseline. I had a straight-on view of the action. My memory may be a little jogged but I think my arms were crossed, I was watching the ball bounce on the rim, it went in, and I’m not sure I had any initial reaction. It was just shock. Part of you wants to walk off the floor and punch a wall. The other part of you is like, if I’m on the Raptors, I’d wanna dap up the people I just played a seven game series against. So I stayed on the court, I talked to Kyle and Marc and Kawhi and Danny and all of those guys, told them good luck, hope they win a championship, and then walked off.
JJ Redick on the Jimmy Butler experience: I love Jimmy and would play with Jimmy again. I don’t know how much longer I’m going to play basketball, but if there was ever an opportunity to link up with him again, I’d be happy to jump on board with that. He is, I think, in the upper tier of two-way players and really in the upper tier of offensive players, period. I talk with my NBA buddies whether they are front office guys, former players, we talk about team building all the time. We always put our GM hats on. I do think when you’re just throwing pieces together in the middle of the season that there are growing pains, specifically on the basketball side of things. The personnel and pieces have to fit, and if there were any growing pains that’s essentially what it boiled down to. The narrative about Jimmy being a bad guy, I just don’t buy it. It’s not true.
When you’re watching film, who are some players you study? Kevin Huerter: As a player, I want to be more of a complete package rather than just being known as a three-point shooter. Coming out of college, I got the Kyle Korver and JJ Redick comparisons pretty quickly. Those guys are unbelievable, but, for me, I’m looking more toward guys like Bradley Beal and Gordon Hayward and Klay Thompson since those guys do a little bit more off-the-dribble than Kyle and JJ and they have more of a complete game. I look at those guys and try to study their different moves, how they get shots off, where they get their shots and things like that. Those are the main guys I watched throughout the year.
