No,you're not reporting ESPN's opinion. ESPN also reported that his +/- for the game was +12. Proving the author and SVG right. For some reason you didn't include that.
Why would Otis demand that JJ be played if he wanted to shop him?? So JJ would look bad and the team would lose?
Well he accomplished the part about him looking bad ... maybe we'll start seeing him in mop-up situations, so he can gain some ground. Again - as per ESPN ..."OVERPOWERING REDICK".

Face it he's a mediocre player - at best - and my guess is, if he wasn't white he wouldn't be playing at all. Ask Keith Bogans.

BTW, "Liberals Are Crazy" - you must then be one, because ...

Look at ESPN's Hollinger Player Profiles.


He uses a Player Efficiency Rating to evaluate players. The Player Efficiency Rating (PER) is a rating of a player's per-minute productivity.

JJ Redick ... 2008-09 Current PER: 10.40
League Average Comparison:-4.60

What this means is his 10.4 PER is 4.6 points below average. To make it worst, IT IS THE LOWEST OF ANY MAGIC PLAYER!

And I quote Hollinger's profile of Redick ...

"The book on Redick hasn't changed -- he's a fantastic jump shooter with his feet set and pretty good even when he has to go off the bounce or wheel and deal off a pin-down. However, he brings virtually nothing else to the table. His defense is well below par, he doesn't rebound, and he can't create shots for others."

Oh and his PER is down from 2007-08 PER: 12.72.

So is all the hard work paying off or was this article just a Bad PR piece?

Hey Liberals ...

If ESPN's factual analysis isn't enough. Real GM Basketball, currently ranked JJ 268 - out of 447 players who played at least one game this year in the NBA. This includes players not currently playing.

you must be crazy!

Again as per ESPN he was +12.

Never said he was anything more that mediocre. I think part of the problem here is that you didn't read the article.

You do know it is late March, right?

Dr. James,

Seems like you just HATE JJ!
And dont get me wrong....some just do. Some have that collegiate love/hate issue with him and cant get over it.

Just grew up a lot with the Magic.
He was only a shooter but now he is coming around to be a great all around guy.

Time for all of us to grow up too.
YES, He does play good D. He aint Battier or Bowen but he is decent.
When he is on the floor you can see the ball movement is much fluid than usual.
Costing us games...???
C'mon now....SVG is our coach...i'm sure you are aware of.

Jimbo,

Is your last name Redick?

I don't hate JJ at all. What I do hate is the hypocrisy of an article being written about him doing such a great job.

He doesn't. He is a poor to mediocre player.

I really believe if he was black (Ala Keith Bogans), he wouldn't be here and you wouldn't see a PR article about him.

BTW, I was a first season - season ticket holder. So I too have been around.

Where in the article did it say he was doing a "great job"?

I just reread the article. And you're right. It just says he worked REALLY hard to reach the level of poor play and mediocrity he's at.

I guess Keith Bogans didn't work as hard to be that mediocre.

Thanks LAC
