J.J. Redick gets video tribute in return to L.A.
Philadelphia 76ers shooting guard J.J. Redick got a fitting tribute video upon his first return as a visiting player at Staples Center, a place he called home for the last four years of his career.
Redick’s four-year stint with the L.A. Clippers was showcased in the big screen during the game’s first timeout — an array of four-point plays and buzzer-beaters that made him such an integral part of a Chris Paul-led team.

J.J. Redick didn’t fare well in Monday night’s outing, totalling only 10 points and shooting a mere 3-of-10 from the field in his return to Los Angeles.
The 6-foot-4 marksman was aided by a couple of 30-plus-point performances from Joel Embiid and Robert Covington, who terrorized the Clippers through heavy minutes for a 109-105 road win.
Redick is dearly remembered by the Clippers fan base for his professionalism and stick-to-task mentality throughout the game. His podcast, The Chronicles of Redick, was also popular among fans, giving another window into his thoughts outside of the NBA life.
A sure-shot deadeye from the perimeter, J.J. Redick boasts nearly the same numbers as he did with the Clippers in his first year in Philadelphia, but now is up to four assists per game — taking on a playmaking duty and operating as more than just a spot-up shooter.
