I figured, who else should start the topic, right?
He was the 11th pick in the 2006 Draft and few Magic players have ever sparked as much debate on the forum over the years as J.J. Redick. Few believed redick should be on the team, let alone in the rotation or as a starter in his first couple of years with the Magic. I'll never forget the night we drafted him as an admitted hardcore Duke basketball fan, I sprinted out of the front door into my front lawn, pumped my fist and hollered, believing at the time that Dwight Howard had one of the outside shooters we need to compete for a championship down the road.
He turned himself from just a sniper and "victory cigar" to a much more complete player.. better defender, better dribbler, better passer. He leaves us as one of the more complete and recognizable players in the league. Selfishly I wish he could of stayed, but he also deserves to be a part of a winning program, so I'm sure everyone will join me in wishing him the most money and wins (hopefully not at the Magic's expense) as he goes on in his career.
