Great. Not only Reddick looks and sounds like a douchebag, but the dude is a racist too?

For (bleep) sake.

When the reports came out about players thinking Reddick was a know it all, smartest guy in the room stuff, it did seem like they were hinting at a white superiority complex.

Would not surprise me one bit.

He always came across as somebody who thought he was so smart and above everybody else.

what's wrong with being arrogant? maybe for once we finally have a HC who can say "no Kurt, you can't be in my meetings".

exactly.
It’s an amazing opportunity, but to have a guy, with a healthy ego who thinks he was born for this is what this franchise needs. Clearly some experience would be nice but I’m all in. He either gets humbled or everything he portrays makes it the perfect match.

Ive bashed Redick a ton but I dont like how this is coming out now. If there were consequences to be paid for acting a fool in college, he should have paid it a long time ago. I dont know what that lady is talking about with lack of accountability with that presser. Seems like another clout chaser who is using the Lakers/Redick name to bring attention upon herself.

Another reminder that we run the league. Doesn’t come out during a long and good NBA career or when he becomes one of the biggest NBA podcasters. It only drops when he becomes our coach. lol

JJ has been in a very public position for a long time. Lakers were specifically referenced in the disclosure. Why would the Lakers hire be the trigger? Is she a Lakers fan?

Can't speak to the veracity of the accusations but Redick does have multiple other accusations of having used racist slurs (towards blacks and Asians) in his past completely unrelated to this accusation. He comes off as a typical liberal so somewhat surprised by the accusations...

She lives in Los Angeles. Maybe his basketball career wasn’t enough to get on her radar, especially when he played for the Clips, but the Lakers press conference was.

JJ Redick’s ex girlfriend Vanessa Lopez just won’t go away. The same woman whom he had sign an abortion contract, is now claiming that he called her racial slurs in emails dating back to 2007.

If there was not enough outrage when these words were supposedly spewed back then, it matters even less now.

Just let him coach and let’s see what we have in him

This is just the start of it. We have all seen how these character assassinations play out. Someone will dig up a tweet from 10 years ago, someone will accuse him of something he did in college, etc…

Maybe these are things he said while under the influence of alcohol. He has admitted to having a drinking problem while in college, and I know he is drinking wine in his podcasts, but he is definitely on camera with that classic red face alcoholic look in some of them.

To be fair to the woman, she did say that she is a Laker fan and I’m guessing it mattered more to her when this man actually became the coach of her favorite team as opposed to when he was just a random podcaster/former player/douche jock.

Also she said she loves Kobe so am I really supposed to distrust this woman? I’m conflicted. My love of Kobe and dislike/mistrust/experience with dudes who look like JJ has me believing her.

That said…people can mature and change and, well, Kobe is the poster child for that, isn’t he?

And this is also definitely a fair take and a bit of what’s happening here. But god it always happens to us doesn’t it. So annoying
