    hey i go to about every magic home game and always read the paper and ive talked to jj. cause im a member at rdv where the magic practice. jj doesnt get no burn no because his defense is no good. its because he has been fighting with otis smith the gm and van gundy. he wants out. for all you that say he has no d what happened in summer league when he was averaging 20pts a game and 5 steals. be serious its the magic front office that sucks. look at all the guys they had and let go basically hall of famers.

    Redick's defense is below average - if he can play D in Ray Allen's level (actually Allen is not a spectecular defender), he should get 20 minutes a game, yet he always looks half step slower while chasing his man (not to mention he can't absorb much bumps) and leaves enough room for opponents to have a second of good look and shoot. This is something fatal because points Redick scored are more or less the same to points scored on Redick by opponents. Redick's offense is less impressed, too. A notable problem is his hesitation to shoot (even at open look). My courtside obversation tells that his teammates trust his shooting but he simply loses his confidence to make shots. I think Redick should stay firm to get transfer or he will follow Trajan Langdon's footstep.

    he was a great college player , we all know that.. but he has had some trouble shooting in the nba thus far when he has gotten some minutes.. he isnt really a playmaker with the ball and his defense is very suspect.. if you start him at the 2, then that means either him or jameer nelson must guard the other teams 2 which can be someone such as kobe, tmac, vince carter, or dwayne wade and this messes up your entire defensive scheme because that is an obvious mismatch..

    He is a very bad defender. Yes he is a very very good shooter but if you can't play defense the coach won't give you and playing time. If JJ can improve his defense, then i'm sure he would be getting a lot of playing time and a lot of points.

    In the NBA, everybody can shoot. The NBA and college ball are world's apart. Those wide open 3 pointers he had at Duke are gone. He's now got somebody in his grill and he can't create a shot. Defense is part of it, so is his inability to create a shot when he's guarded.

    Very one dimensional....he can only play shooting guard and at that position you gotta be able to defend...it also would help if you expanded his game to being able to put the ball on the floor and penetrating
