That NBA Lottery Pick:
Thanks to the World Wide Web, we learn some interesting things about NBA players every day and thanks to Deadspin, we now know that Los Angeles Clippers guard J.J. Redick is a huge watch collector.
J.J. posts on a forums website called “Paneristi Public Forum” (Paneristi is term used to describe someone who likes Panerai-brand watches) and below is one of his posts from January 2012:
I’m fairly new to this forum- I discovered it back in June- and have only posted on here a dozen or so times (mostly wrist shots and a few pics of my small Panerai collection). Up until last week I had never met anyone from this community. However, I was headed to Northern California for my job this past Sunday so I decided to hit up Micah, who many of you know, because he made some straps for me and has always been very gracious and patient with all of my questions. Micah and I had just a few minutes to meet up but it was my pleasure to meet him and his beautiful wife and son. He was even kind enough to bring me a strap for my 372 (pictured below). After our meeting, I had to head up to Portland, OR for a few days (again for work) and Micah suggested I meet up with a couple of great Ristis in the Portland area, Howard L and Mike C.
Howard, Mike, and I had a wonderful dinner at Wildwood restaurant in Portland. And Micah was right- two solid gents. It was great to meet them and share some pics of our watches and families. Looking forward to the next time I’m out on the West Coast.
Here’s a few photos of some goodies that Micah, Howard, and Mike were kind of enough to give me. A couple of revolution mags from Howard and Mike, a strap for my 372 from Micah, and a strap from Howard for my zero. Thanks, gents! Great meeting you!
In case you seem to doubt the post authenticity, JJ’s IP address when making the post came from Orlando and the time-frame of when J.J. was in Northern California/Portland seem to match the Magic’s road-trip from Sacramento/Portland during the 2012-2013 regular season.
Also, there is this response from “Howard” (mentioned in the original post) in the same thread:
So, there you have it, J.J. Redick loves his expensive watches!

'FALSE AND MALICIOUS'
JJ Redick took to his Twitter account and vehemently denied accusations contained in media reports that he had an "abortion contract" with an ex-girlfriend.
I understand why Redick is upset.
He is married now, so I am sure it probably upset his wife. Also, being connected with one of the biggest NBA groupies around Vanessa Lopez isn’t the greatest look.
But, here is what is funny about Redick’s reply. No one ever said Lopez was pregnant by him or had a abortion, but that is what he seems that upset about.
I am not really sure...
JJ Redick has been in the NBA for seven years so he knows his way around contract negotiations. Apparently off-the-court contracts involving his lady friends aren’t out of bounds either.
Redick reportedly was involved in a nasty legal snarl with Orlando model Vanessa Lopez early in his career and now documents are being leaked despite a previous confidentiality agreement.

J.J. Redick took to Twitter to state that the 2007 abortion contract between him and model Vanessa Lopez never even existed in the first place.
Lamar Odom should talk to JJ Redick about getting one of those contracts together.
His stripper mistress is just not going to let this go and the way she is talking she has no fear of any type of lawsuit or legal threat from Lamar.
That leads me to believe she is telling the truth. One of these days the athletes will learn they have to be more careful about which women they decide...

The Los Angeles Clippers came into the 2013 offseason with more then a few gaps to fill. After the signing of former Charlotte Bobcats 7 footer Byron Mullens, those gaps are now few are far between. The Clippers improved their depth considerably at the guard position this offseason, but the lack of depth in the post has been a concern within the...
In 2013, blasting one’s private interactions with athletes via social media has become practically the norm. But there were some athletes who already had a glimpse of what the future would hold and had chicks signing confidentiality agreements with abortion clauses way back in 2007.
JJ Redick was a young second year player back then playing for the Orlando Magic in 07 dating a...
Back in the day before social media took off, a sidepiece knew her place was in the shadows on mute. But that era is gone and this new breed of mistresses jump at any and every opportunity to expose the athletes they claim to have had some deep meaningful relationship with. Lamar Odom’s alleged stripper girlfriend recently revealed more dirty deets of her year-long “relationship”...
Uriah Hall runs into Matt Barnes of the Los Angeles Clippers outside of Stark in Southern California. A ton of other athletes are becoming UFC fans and it is apparent by how many attend UFC events. Nice to see these fighters get the respect they deserve by members of other sports.

Chris Paul is leaning toward playing int he 2016 Olympics after previously indicating that he would bypass the games.
Mike Krzyzewski was expected to not return as head coach of USA Basketball, but was convinced to commit to another run.
"If it had been another coach than Coach K, I was prepared to be done," Paul said.
USA will also have Derrick Rose, Kyrie Irving, Russell...
Same game different athlete. We knew time would only tell until another NBA player gets caught cheating and having affairs. But this time it’s with a reality star and Kardashian [...]
If this is not a sign of how slow things are with the Magic, I don't know what is. But here I am posting this (better than posting the latest J.J. Redick/TMZ story. . . honestly, I have made a news judgment not even to talk about it, this is probably the only mention you will see of it).
Back to what we are really talking about.
The Amway Center in-game experience will...
The summer has slowed down in terms of NBA news but there is
still plenty to talk about. I still
haven’t figured out the best day to release my weekly column but just know that
it will drop weekly at some point. This
week we take a look at JJ Redick’s personal life, Derrick Rose and Nate
Robinson’s signing with the Nuggets.
