JJ Redick Reveals His Biggest NBA Career Regret

JJ Redick Reveals His Biggest NBA Career Regret

Last week revered NBA sharpshooter J.J. Redick announced his official retirement from professional basketball.

Redick broke the news on his beloved podcast, ‘The Old Man and The Three.’

In the days since, Redick has taken an introspective look at his storied 15-year NBA career.

As part of that reflection, at a recent live taping of the show in Brooklyn, New York, Redick offered up what he perceives to be his biggest career regret.

That regret? Leaving the Philadelphia 76ers after two seasons to join the New Orleans Pelicans.

“You can’t change an outcome, because an outcome is out of your control,” Redick said. “So you can change a decision. I wish there was a way I could have gone back to Philly.”

This isn’t the first time Redick has spoken out about his 76ers experience. He has gotten brutally honest about what went wrong with the organization in the past, so it stands to reason that the franchise holds a special place in his heart.

Throughout 940 regular season outings Redick averaged 12.8 points per game – all while shooting 41.5 percent from behind the arc for his career and establishing himself as one of the most featured three-point shooters around.

In a period of time when the Sixers are clearly dealing with some pretty serious drama, at least fans of the team can take solace in the fact that someone has fond memories of playing in Philly.
