Found via True Hoop. Link here with a lot more interesting Redick links.

    I've been tempted to put one of JJ's videos from YouTube up on here for a while. You picked out a sweet one. What he did in college, with the pressure he had on his shoulders, just makes you realize, there is a little more to this guy than being able to hit an open shot. He's not another "Pat Garrity".

    With guys like Dwight, Jameer, Hedo, Darko, Carlos, and Hill around, JJ should be able to go under the radar, be a silent assassin, and make some of the shots that hurt opponents the most. Regardless if he starts the season or not, that’s why I think he’ll be apart of our best team on the floor. He will force other teams to make a decision. Who on the Magic is the lesser evil? Who on the Magic do you want to try and force to beat you? It starts with Dwight down low. He is already a beast and he will only continue to get better. Darko can go inside-out, and makes very smart decisions with the basketball. Hedo can go outside-in, a very good scorer, who also makes smart decisions on the floor. Jameer will be the general to all of this, and is the wrong guy to challenge to beat you, because he loves that opportunity. Which would leave JJ, a guy who pretty much never misses any form of shot on the floor, dare him to beat you, and he will. Regardless if he starts of not, that’s the group of guys I’m looking forward to seeing on the floor together next season. They’ll be unstoppable on the offensive end. And even if JJ or Jameer lack a little size on the other end, at least they’ll have Darko and Dwight backing them up at all times. This team really could shape up to look like the Pistons of the last few years, except a lot younger, which could be scary, and the start of something great.

    Nice disection, Introvert316. Redick under the mentorship of the other Dookie can turn into someone special. The potentials are there if he gets his acts together, especially off the basketball court.

    Also, with Redick resting his back all summer, it should be 100% by training camp and shouldn't be an issue at all this season.

    As Introvert316 pointed out, opposing defenses will have a tough decision on who to guard when Redick is on the floor, because of his ability to spread the defense with his tremendous range.
