i think he is healthy and able to play just hasn't been used yet. last game i saw he was in warmups so i'm pretty sure he can go at anytime but so far Brian Hill hasn't felt the need to put him in. i'd probably wait awhile longer considering JJ didn't go through preseason and some of training camp.

that makes absolutely no sense whatsoever. not talking about what g12affix said, but about the Magic not using him if he is healthy. didn't they use like the number 11 pick overall on him? If he is healthy, why wouldn't they at least put him in in the garbage minutes at the end of games? so you're last 2 first round picks have worked out nicely. 1 refuses to come to the NBA, and the other you refuse to play.
I was looking forward to seeing how Reddick could help the Magic take another step forward. Nelson, Reddick, Hill, Howard, and Darko. sounds like a pretty good young lineup.
guess we'll have to wait and see.

i really want to see that, just because theres so many people that hated on all of them, Reddick right now is surprisingly quiet considering how little (or not at all) the magic are using him, i'd expect him to ask for a trade, but he probably realizes how good a team this can be, just got to get back in the coaches favor

It's amazing how quickly everyone forgets how good JJ was in college. I'm not a Duke fan, but I loved his game. We've always had this argument: If JJ and Morrison traded places in college so that JJ was on Gonzaga, how much BETTER would he be?? JJ had Shelden Williams and a solid lineup surrounding him at Duke, and he was STILL the man. At Gonzaga, he would've been absurd. I still think JJ, once he is fully healthy and available, will be a force in the NBA. Your coach should be smart and figure out how to use him - off the screens for easy jumpers and isolation 3's. I'm not saying he'll be the next Reggie Miller, but his potential to reach that level is certainly there.

JJ did enough in college at a high level NBA-ready program and he lead the team and was more than just a pure shooter. In the NBA he probably won't be able to be that effctive, but he still has the capability to be a leader on the floor and there is no argument that he is a great shooter.

I think he would fit in well with a lineup of Nelson/Howard/Hill/Darko because of how thin the defense would be spread with JJ and Nelson in there simultaneously as both are effective 3 point shooters. Dwight's low post game would help create openings, as well as the sold mid range game of both Darko and Grant Hill.

The team is 13-4 without him and getting great guard play from Hill, Dooling, Arroyo, and Jameer. Ariza is also making huge contributions off the bench at the 3 and actually is a good defensive player something that Redick is not. Who would you propose that they reduce for in order to get JJ on the court? They haven't had very many blowout games to get him garbage minutes.

The NBA for coaches is all about winning now...

JJ will get his opportunity when injuries occur or when the Magic go through a bit of a slump... Its hard to bring in rooks when your team is really playing well...

Darko isn't even starting...

there's a reason for that though. he has had his chance and isn't producing good enough to start.


Reddick hasn't even been given a chance in the mop up minutes at the end of games. if his defense is SO horrible, why did they pick him up in the draft with that high of a draft pick?

I watch a LOT of college ball, and obviously saw a lot of Duke games. JJ Redick (one d, guys) was an above average defender. He could DEFINATELY dribble, and was really very multidimensional. I know he has this rep as a 3 point shooter only, but if you ever actually watched him play (especially his senior year) he could do almost anything on the floor.

Coach Hill is a MORON for not playing him over some of the scrubs he gives minutes to.
