Bucks guard JJ Redick on his Duke days, "I was sort of a pr*ck"

I love this time of the year.

I also love Grantland. It’s quickly becoming one of the best sports sites. And, even though, we’re in the thick of "March Madness," the staff at Grantland seem to truly be noticing the Milwaukee Bucks. I like this too.

A story yesterday on Grantland, though, deals with the college hoops escapades of Bucks guard JJ Redick. Redick, if you didn’t know, played for Duke, a team many love to hate.

I’ve always admired Redick’s play and shooting ability and Robert May’s piece on him makes me like him even more.

Read and enjoy it here.

It's a fun insight into the world of big time college basketball and how young players cope with it.

Redick tells Grantland, "I think I created this persona on the court to deal with the antics of the other crowd, to kind of combat that," Redick says. "It’s not who I was. It was never who I was. I look back on that, especially my first two years, and I probably deserved a lot of the animosity."

Happy March Madness, Milwaukee.
