JJ Redick posted a short video of himself doing some nice dunks:

Is this a sign of him being interesting in the 2014 dunk contest? Wink

On a serious note, I'd love to see him cut to the basket like that if the defense crowds him too much.

Looks like he's in the best shape he's been in. Looks ripped. I'm so pumped for the season.

Redick has always been in pretty good shape, and David Stern, he's dunked in an NBA game, so I'd hope he can dunk on practice, lol.

He doesn't dunk much because it isn't practical for him to take chances dunking in games as opposed to a more sure layup. He's 6'4, and despite not a great reach, him not being able to dunk would be a bigger deal.

Hopefully he throws one down as a Clipper though Smile

Oh please no. I'm already disappointed that he's in the team now he's gonna try to make a mockery of the last white hope Brent Barry

^ So, you dislike Redick, say Tony Parker is better than CP, and call Blake Griffin a 'choke artist/soft'. Are you even a Clippers fan? smh.

So in order to be a fan I gotta follow a certain guidelines

  1. CP3 is the best and has zero flaws

  2. BG is one bad mama jamma! He just punks all other forward and even the most clutch player today.

  3. The clippers roster comprised of top nba talents that are rank #1-15.

  4. No NBA players are better than BG and CP

  5. Redick is the 2014 shoe in dunk champion.

Anything else that I miss?

^ No need for a list. Just support the Clippers as a team and stop being so negative.

But then again you are the same guy who claims that Blake Griffin intentionally injures himself in the playoffs to take pressure off himself so maybe there is no reasoning with you...

Yes, very, very mediocre dunks, considering I'm 5'11 and can outdunk him, but J.J. isn't in the NBA for his dunking ability.

Hopefully he gets a good break oppurtunitt and throws one down this season just for the fun of it. CP had a few last season.

I say it's not bad for a guy who's "not athletic". Razz

Wow. Yeah a lot of people claim he's not that athletic but from this video, it seems he's decently athletic for a 6'4 guy.

Redick has always been an okay athlete, longer arms would do him more good than anything, but longer arms would mean Redick is probably a different NBA player than what we have and not on the Clippers.

It's always relative though, the average 6'4 athletic high school or higher player is going to look a lot more impressive on just pure athletic ability than that. If we're comparing him to the general American 6'4 population in terms of pure run and jump ability, then yes, it's pretty decent.

I'm shocked that is his height. 6'4" for a point guard as good, but for a shooting guard its short. Still, as long as he stretches the floor, which all signs point to him being able to, we should benefit by his presence.

I hope this summer was the start of the rebirth of Duke JJ

The start may have begun last year, especially in Orlando. He looked a lot more like his collegiate self. I'm with you, I hope he gets even better. If he does, he could potentially be one of our Big 3 everybody keeps talking about. (although I kinda think of Crawford as already a member but whatever).

CP3 and Blake will make it really easy for JJ to have a Duke like year. It won't get any easier than this for him.
