I am happy JJ had a good game. I hope he finally has more. If JJ can score enough points to balance either of the other two out then he will be a great help to the team. Here is another chance for him to shine. I hope he finally does it.

I agree Bob he finally got a break and game through beautifully.

We need his 3's, I hope he keeps them coming.

I think his shot suffered becaused he focused so much on "D". Now, he's focusing on his shot again, and his "D" really is that bad. I mean he tries very hard, and makes his man play "D" on him.

I didn't even read the article, just the headline and got sick.

Unfortunately, I think Redick's career game was his last one.

If I'm wrong I'll be the first to admit it, but I don't think so and it makes me nervous thinking we have to rely on him.

Look, despite everyone saying "He just needs more minutes" ... this year he gotten significantly more minutes and played in more games than he ever has and his Player Efficency Rating has gone down.

Numbers don't lie.

You can wish him well, but do you really want an ineffective, mediocre player "taking charge"?

And you want him to "take charge"?

You can always count on at least one racist to spew venom one way or another.

Will the Magic run plays for JJ like most teams do for their shooting guards? The answer is no. The Magic don't do "sissy" stuff like set picks. They also don't dive for loose balls, block out or help on defense.

I am just hoping JJ can get out of Orlando.

The franchise is a mess.

You must have a really pathetic life. Go out and do something for the community. Plant a damn tree. Why do you even bother waking up in the morning?

JJ looked like a balanced focused pro, which is a big move in the right direction. He could have folded and no one would have been surprised. He's got the monkey off his back. Otis gave him the right encouragement "have some fun" it's been a long time since he has enjoyed playing. He's got the skill set and he looks like he's found his shot. Maybe, just maybe he will finally reach the potential and play like we all want him to. He was on fire for once.

One thing I have noticed with JJ in ... he is one of the only guards on that team that can consistantly run the pick-and-roll. His D might suck at time but ball movement seems to be better when he's in there. If he starts getting the confidence back in his shot and ball movement is better, I think the Magic with put up with his weakness on defense (which has gotten better).
