J.J. Redick has issue with stereotypes about white Duke players
Los Angeles Clippers guard J.J. Redick told Dan that stereotypes about white Duke players bother him. He said that players get that rap even before they start playing at Duke or get that reputation too early like Grayson Allen. Redick said he responded to that kind of attention by trying to smile a lot of the court.
“There’s always been this anti-Duke thing going back to when I was a Duke fan in 1992,” Redick said. “The player receives this animosity and your response as a player is either cower in the corner or fight. For some guys that fight instinct can manifest in antics. Let’s call ’em antics.”
