The richest new Sixers player, JJ Redick, made his return to podcasting yesterday for the Uninterrupted.
Redick spoke at length about his unique journey through free agency and we documented many of his thoughts after he signed here, but today he released a mini documentary that follows him during the whole free agency ordeal. Perhaps to the delight of Joel Embiid fans, it's titled "The Process with JJ Redick."
It's again produced for LeBron James' Bleacher Report spin off the Uninterrupted and tracks Redick from his final game in LA, to his moving into his Brooklyn home with his wife, to chatting candidly with his agent about destinations, to finally ending up with the Sixers.
It's edited well and he speaks pretty openly about his feelings and tough decisions and how they all weigh on his family.
JJ puts a percentage on the factors that weigh into his final decision: 30% winning, 30% salary, 30% fit or enjoyment of playing, 10% looking out for his family and their lifestyle.
Sadly, the real meaty parts, like his meeting with the Sixers in Camden, aren't shown (at his request). So you don't really get a great look at those pivotal moments.

When he asks his wife to rank the cities of Brooklyn, Miami, and Philadelphia in 1-2-3 order, she responds "Brooklyn. Brooklyn. Brooklyn." (They already had a home there.)
It's a fun, quick 15 minutes. My biggest takeaway? Adidas makes some pretty sweet casual wear.
