Redick recently retired from the NBA after an impressive 15-year career.

While I don’t care much for the NBA, I have always been impressed by Redick. In fact, I’ve been more impressed by him outside of basketball than his play on the court.

In the podcast clips I’ve seen of him, he’s a very entertaining and informative guy.

Usually, I drag ESPN because the network tends to make dumb decision after dumb decision like it’s part of the company’s DNA.

I’ve been very brutal over the years. Always fair, but brutal!

Well, if I’m going to knock ESPN when the network makes stupid decisions, then I have to tip my cap when the network makes smart ones.

Adding Redick to the bullpen is an outstanding decision. He’s amazing on camera and he has been a basketball star for nearly two decades.

Ever since he played for the Blue Devils, he’s been a household name in the sport, and he’s now taking his talents to the biggest network in all of sports.


It should be a ton of fun to see how Redick does. I have a feeling he’s going to crush it.
