A significant retirement has taken place in the world of Basketball, with the retirement of J.J. Redick who ended his 15-year NBA career today.
After establishing himself as one of the top college players in Duke history, Redick was taken by the Orlando Magic with the 11th Overall Pick. The Shooting Guard would become known for his skills from behind the arc, and in 2015-16, when he was with the Los Angeles Clippers, he led the NBA in Three-Point Percentage (.475). Redick would have seven seasons where he cracked the 15 Points per game mark, and would retire with a career 12.8 PPG.
Redick also played for Milwaukee, Philadelphia, New Orleans and Dallas.
While Redick’s NBA career does not scream Hall of Fame, the institution does recognize collegiate accomplishments, of which Redick has in spades. Playing at Duke, the sharpshooter won the AP Player of the Year in 2006, as well as capturing the John R. Wooden Player of the Year, Naismith College Player of the Year and the Sporting News Player of the Year. He also won the ACC Player of the Year twice and the Rupp Trophy twice. The Blue Devils also retired his #4.
Redick is Hall of Fame eligible in 2025, but we expect that he is more likely to get into the College Basketball Hall of Fame.
We here at Notinhalloffame.com would like to wish J.J. Redick the best in his post-playing career.
