Report: J.J. Redick Cried Over Breakfast after Playoff Exit

During the annual exit interviews that occur once a team’s season is up, J.J. Redick revealed to the media that he had cried the morning after the Los Angeles Clippers were eliminated from the 2014 NBA Playoffs by the Oklahoma City Thunder.

Based solely on Markazi’s tweet, it’s easy to just assume that Redick cried over being eliminated, but considering all things that pertained to a long, dreary postseason, each factor could have played a role in it.

Despite not being African-American, Doc Rivers said J.J. Redick was one of the players who Sterling’s act hit the hardest. Overall it’s been a tough season for Redick. He was forced to deal with injuries throughout the season and his postseason was up in the air due to a back problem that forced him to miss nearly two months of play. Fortunately the shooting guard would return, but he and the Clippers came up short in their quest for a NBA championship.

In an offseason where mental rest is needed, the opposite may be what we are in store for Clippers players because of Sterling’s ongoing antics. Hopefully the NBA finds a resolution, so the franchise can go into the 2014-15 season with a clear head and open mind.
