J.J. Redick, who more or less trolled the entirety of college basketball for his four years at Duke, just can’t stop.
“I can’t watch college basketball. I can’t watch it,” he said, unprompted. “I watch Duke games occasionally. This [season] was the most I’ve ever watched. I probably watched eight games this year.”
Redick says he just can't watch college basketball.
Lowe had asked Redick whether he watched a lot of NBA basketball before Redick took the time to rip the association where he made his name, which is just so perfectly Redick. (He also said he wouldn’t watch a Sixers-Knicks game.)
Redick, who now plays with the Los Angeles Clippers, was an all-time college basketball player -- “the gold standard for modern-era shooting guards,” as Sports Illustrated once put it.
But he was also infamously despised. Seriously, that same Sports Illustrated article referred to him as “the most hated player in college hoops.” If you look up J.J. Redick on UrbanDictionary.com, you’ll find the definition, “Most hated NCAA Basketball player in the country and maybe ever.” And if you ask J.J. Redick himself about his college years, he’ll admit he was “sort of a prick.”
So, Redick implying without provocation and amid March Madness that college basketball is complete garbage? Nothing could be more poetic.
