JJ Redick has never been banal, especially since in recent years he decided to sit behind a microphone and take a step that was not taken for granted for an NBA player (who later became an ex after the choice made by the shooter this summer): comment and tell about basketball without skimping on opinions and questioning one’s point of view. Also this time he did not hesitate to explain his reasons and to give his opinion on the list of the 75 best all-time players, indicated about ten days ago: “One of the funniest things I have been told about the selection of players is me Austin Rivers told it, saying he is convinced that if he had played in the NBA against Bob Cousy he would have been a Hall of Famer … and he is not wrong! ”. After all, basketball has evolved so much that thinking of putting the past and present 60 years apart on the same level is as suggestive as it is wrong: “Most players of the 1950s, 1960s, and early 1970s wouldn’t hold the pitch in the NBA today. Of course: Oscar Robertson, Jerry West, Wilt, Bill Russell… I’m not talking about them, but all the others would make a beastly effort ”. The phrase that made the most news, however, is another, also provocative: “Kevin Love is better than 99% of power forward featured in the list of the best 75 all-time players ”. You agree?
