"I'm very excited for the season," Redick said. "Two months later I'm still pinching myself a little bit. My wife and I have talked about this a number of times, but I've always said to her how great it would be to be playing for a team in the prime of my career that had a chance to win and was in a market like L.A. What a great place to live. And playing for a coach like Doc and with a group of guys that you know is just a good group of guys. I feel very fortunate."

Interview on this page too from Madelyn. She blew it though by interviewing him randomly about Coach K instead of about the Clippers, WTF.

Redick is going to be huge for us this year, I've been a fan of his since his Duke days and this guy is the ultimate pro and competitor, love his attitude also. He'll be providing ClipperNation with many BINGOS!

2 quotes I really liked from the article:

--"Going back to the week or so we were getting this deal done during free agency, I mentioned to [Clippers head coach] Doc [Rivers] that I wanted to be in this situation because there was going to be pressure, because there was going to be expectations," Redick said. "I feel like when I look back at my career I've always done better and I've always been happier when there's more expectation and more pressure."

--Clippers forward Matt Barnes, who played with Redick for a season in Orlando, said one of the traits that stood out about his current and former teammate is that no matter how much opponents came at him he never backed down.

"I think people that know what they're talking about see that side of me," Redick said, agreeing with Barnes. "Playing for Coach K and for Stan for a number of years, that's one thing that they always saw in me as well. You want your coaches to see that in you. You want your teammates to see that in you. The average NBA fan, they're going to see a 6-4 white guy who can shoot the ball. I'll never change that and I don't really care about that."

  • "In terms of things that I work on, I always feel like you can get better in any area. I know this year I'll be playing a little bit more off of Chris, off of Blake [Griffin]. I didn't like the way I shot the ball in Milwaukee, so I worked really hard on my shooting-threes off the move and off the catch. And also continued to work on my ball-handling and my in-between game-my runners and floaters."

If he can hit 3's off the move, our offense is going to give teams fits.

I was actually much more excited about the Dudley trade initially, but JJ could be the best thing that ever happened to Blake.

NP. Usually I'd merge it, but all you posted was a link with no post of your own, so I just moved that to the garbage bin since you found this one man.

Technically we have 2 and a half white guys...I think. Might be wrong on that.

Just read this on hoopshype. It's crazy that these players are on the clippers, don't even know what to do as a fan. So exciting

JJ & Mully are white then both Blake n Barnes (half Italiano) are half white... so does that make 3? lol. Very Happy Anyway u look at this team has crazy skilled & BBIQ guys regardless of ethnicity. What is surprising is the lack of international players on the squad. No more Turiaf twirl.

Just did some quick research and I'm pretty sure Dudz is half white too. So we are at 3.5. I wonder if RyHo is also...
