It seems like a lot of people forgot that he was a big time scorer/shooter in college because he had issues staying in SVG's rotation when he was in Orlando.

Now it seems like the Magic are deferring to him as the #1 option and he isn't shying away from putting up 20+ points if necessary.

You know he's shooting 64% from the field and 75% from 3 ?

If he's the #1 option possibly. Other than that hell no.

meh.. they may be 2-0 now but ill say it isnt impossible because he might be the 1st option on what will be a terrible team... but hes a shooter and nothing else... so my guess is no.. but he could have a good season..

If you think hes a shooter and nothing else, you pronably havent seen him play the past 2-3 years. The guy is a good all around player.

To answer the question though, no i dont see him averaging 22 ppg for the rest of the season.

If you had to classify him as one thing.. it would be a shooter... but by all around? you mean? .. cause i have seen enough to know he isnt very strong defensively..

Next stupid over-reactionary thread....


(JJ is good, and will continue to have a big role, but he's not gonna average 22 points this year)

Hes a decent defender, hes a bit below average but atleast he tries his hardest and is not useless. Hes also a very smart player that makes good decisions with the ball. He can handle the ball and run the offense for short streches of a game. Its one thing to classify him as a shooter because thats his best skill, but to say hes a shooter and nothing else is incorrect.

Reddick is everything that Turkoglu claims to be, but shorter.

Na but I think 15-17 ppg isn't out of the question if he continues to get 30+ minutes a game. I watched him play last night and he looks like he has really matured as an NBA player. Takes good shots, runs hard in the half court offense always, and makes the right pass. Their top offensive option other than him is Big Baby..... so therefore I think he could easily average over 15 a game.

I can see him averaging around 16 ppg in his current role, but 22...No. You have to be able to create more for yourself to average 20+...

How is that? If i wanted to compare him to any1 in the league right now i would say hes a james harden with less athleticism, strength, and ability to draw fouls at a high rate. Theyre both good shooters, passers, high iq players. They both move well without the ball.

J.J. is an underrated play-maker, and with more minutes and fewer scoring options, he could put up nice assist totals. He'll surprise a lot of you with his ability to create off the dribble. He's come a long way. I've even said before that I'd be comfortable with him playing backup PG.

But the James Harden comparison I think is slightly cringe-worthy. There are some parallels, but the gaps in their games are too significant.

I don't know if he will continue at this pace, but I can definitely see him hovering around 18-20 a game with close to 5 assists a game. I have thought he should have been starting over J-Rich the entire time J-Rich was on that team.

And this is what I expected of him with the right amount of playing time, and on a team that doesn't revolve around one strategy of dump the ball to Dwight.

Reddick is very underrated. (Understandable why though, since he was never given the right opportunity, or been in a situation conducive to him excelling at what he is talented at.)

I doubt that.. I know reddick is not a strong defender but i dont know if anyone is as poor as hedo -.- .. plus turk is just lazy and a tool... Ya i have a hate for him but if you watched him play with toronto you wouldnt blame me -.-

I don't think Hedo claims to be much any more. J.J. is the better player now.

But Redick isn't nearly as good as Hedo was in his Magic prime.

So who would you compare him to? I think a poor mans harden is a decent comparison.

No way. JJ is underated, but once defenses key in on him being the #1 scorer on the magic his efficiency will go down dramatically. He can shoot off the dribble but is not a shot creator. He is more likely to average around 15-16 as a #1 option

I think 18 is best case scenario.

While most people say No, somebody has to score for the Magic and JJ is the best scorer they have left and he has always been a great player who hasn't gotten his chance.

JJ Redick is a good shooter but rarely shooters average +20pts per game in the NBA. The players who average more than 20 points are the scorers, who are able to create his own shoot and don't need anyone that pass him the ball like happen with JJ.

Players like Reggie Miller, Alan Houston, Ray Allen, Richard Hamilton have reach this points average some season in the past without being scorer because they play in really good teams, with other players who create space to them. If Redick didn't do it along with Howard last year, I don't think he'll do now without him.

At best, he'll achieve 15-18 pts per game in the Magics, and maybe anybody overcome him in this teams as higher scorer because I don't believe that Glen Davis and Nelson will be able to create advantageous situations for him. As he isn't too tall to play as SG he will have to settle for being a player like Ben Gordon, which isn't bad.

In the coming years he maybe get overcome 20 points per game if he play beside a start, but this year, although he will do more shots per game I doubt he attain it because his percentages are going to decrease.

He'll get between 15-20 PPG this year.

No, but hopefully he keeps this **** up so Orlando can trade him at the deadline to a team wanting scoring off the bench!

I can see him averaging 30 and challenging Durant for the scoring title.

Meh...I think he'll average a little more than that. He got there last year, but he should get 5 or so minutes a game this year, and he'll be asked to score a bit more too. 14-15 is doable. Hopefully 4 or so assists a game to.

Yup. I love JJ, but I'm really only hoping he keeps this up to increase his stock. He'll be gone either way, so hopefully he keeps auditioning strongly.

No but he can easily average 15-16ppg for the season, even as a role player. We literally have no one to score for us, apologies to Big Baby. Redick is a phenomenal shooter- couple that with the fact that he's a veteran with something to prove and I see him having a big season with 6th Man of the Year considerations.

I could see him getting 20 if he has a good shooting year. Magic don't really have any big scorers now so him and Baby are gonna get a ton of shots. Redick can flat out score if given the opportunity. Hes an underrated offensive player, much more than just a spot up shooter.
