Former NBA player JJ Redick is gaining a lot of fans as he continues to be aggressive when responding to ESPN’s Stephen A. Smith’s hot takes on ESPN’s First Take.
Last week, Redick went viral when he made the First Take host look dumb for saying LeBron “has never been feared” by opposing players.

“I don’t know whether to believe that you believe what you’re saying,” “If you’re talking physical confrontation, nobody’s ever challenged LeBron like that. Why would they? … I played against LeBron for 15 years. LeBron has grown up in a completely different world [than what] existed in the ‘80s and ‘90s. There was no First Take in the ‘90s. Could you imagine, in the New York Knicks series, MJ going to Atlantic City the day before the game and coming home at 2 a.m.? Social media, this show, that’s all you would talk about for days.”
On Tuesday, Redick once again went at Stephen A. and called his latest take on the Phoenix Suns “asinine” which made Smith angry.
.@stephenasmith believes the Suns' championship window has already closed.
Things between him and @jj_redick got HEATED 😳🔥

NBA fans loved that Redick was challenging Smith and his dumb basketball takes.
Another day, another episode of JJ making Stephen A look a fool! https://t.co/Sxc24xEW7i

This is so cringeworthy.
Poor @jj_redick is giving actual basketball analysis & is the only former NBA player up there, while Stephen A and Mina show you that their input is confined to streamlined hot takes.
Phoenix is a really good team. Their title window has not closed. https://t.co/SZtjIwyt4J

This show is beneath the quality of conversation and analysis JJ Redick provides to the audience. https://t.co/85tBZEoTFx

JJ Redick is actually EXACTLY what First Take needs right now.
