Found January 10, 2013 on Fox Sports Florida:
The great NBA Jeopardy! challenge has seen another player proclaim victory.Or, make that another Dukie.It all started when Miami forward Shane Battier said last November he could defeat any player in the NBA in Jeopardy! Then Milwaukee forward Mike Dunleavy, once Battiers teammate at Duke, said, I dont think he could beat me.Now, a guy who played for the Blue Devils after Battier and Dunleavy left, says he could beat both in the game show.I like me, Orlando guard J.J. Redick said when asked who would win an NBA Jeopardy! showdown between Battier and Dunleavy. The only way I would lose to them is one if one of the categories was 80s pop culture. I was sheltered as a child. I didnt get much of that.So in which categories does Redick believe he could outwit both Battier and Dunleavy?In history and in random facts, I would be good, said Redick, who played for Duke from 2002-06 while Battier was there from 1997-2001 and Dunleavy from 1999-02. Im not an expert in a lot of things, but I know a little about everything.When it was suggested these Duke alums should battle in a Jeopardy! tournament during All-Star Weekend, Redick was all for it.As for the Battier boast that started it all, Redick said, He overestimates his intelligence.Redick then said he was joking. But hes not joking when to comes to beating both Battier and Dunleavy.Chris Tomasson can be reached at christomasson@hotmail.com or on Twitter @christomasson

Redick Drawing Trade Interest From Several Teams

J.J. Redick is having a career-year for the Magic.

Arron Afflalo seems to be getting comfortable

Arron Afflalo was somewhat reflective in his return to Denver on Wednesday. He told the reporters, including Christopher Dempsey of the Denver Post, covering the game that playing for the Nuggets was his first opportunity to grow as a scorer and become a better player. In Detroit, he was a bit player on a good team relied on mostly for defense. In Denver, he needed to do more. ...

Would Magic, fans take Dwight back?

This is a story or an idea that will not seem to go away. Like a jilted girlfriend, there are still some feelings. And the idea of a reunion just will not die. So when Mike Bianchi of the Orlando Sentinel writes: In other words, it's easy for the Magic to say they won't pursue Dwight now when they know they don't have a snowball's chance in Haiti of getting...

Shane Battier sings "The Love Boat" theme

This video has been making the round for a couple days now, but we didn't have a blog a couple days ago, so we're posting it now. For the second consecutive year, the Miami Heat's Shane Battier will be hosting a celebrity karaoke event -- South Beach Battioke -- to benefit The Battier Take Charge Foundation. To help market the Jan. 21 event we have this beautiful rendition...

Shane Battier sings ‘The Love Boat’ theme song (VIDEO)

Miami Heat forward Shane Battier’s resume includes being a lockdown defender, a decent spot-up three-point shooter, a complete class act and a terrible, horrible, awful singer. Battier, a Birmingham, Michigan native, is as philanthropic as they come.  As part of the theme for his second annual ”South Beach Battioke”, a celebrity karaoke event that will take place on Monday...

Jeff Van Gundy calls out Dwight Howard

While many media members buddy up with Dwight Howard because of his outgoing personality, Jeff Van Gundy is not falling for the act. Van Gundy believes that Howard got his brother, former Magic coach Stan Van Gundy, fired in Orlando, and he’s not afraid to call out Howard when he feels it is necessary. During the second quarter of Friday’s Oklahoma City Thunder-Los Angeles Lakers...

Turkoglu talks Howard, future in Orlando

Ask Magic guards J.J. Redick and Jameer Nelson about Dwight Howard and the Los Angeles Lakers and they bristle.I have no take, Redick said.I have nothing to say about the Lakers or any player on the Lakers team, Nelson said.But ask Orlando forward Hedo Turkoglu about Howard and he beams. Turkoglu, who played with Howard during 6 of his eight Magic seasons, remains good friends with...

Magic looking to avoid prolonged losing streak

Perhaps it is too late to avoid a "long" losing streak seeing as the Magic's current nine-game skid is the longest for the franchise since 2004, but this team wants to avoid falling further behind. We can go through the stats again, but it probably is not really necessary. Except for one or two games in this streak, Orlando has been in every game and has been unable...

Magic defense just plain foul

27-7. That was the number nobody on the Magic specifically talked about following Wednesday's loss to the Nuggets. Jameer Nelson opened up his postgame comments saying he was not going to talk about the foul disparity. Jacque Vaughn deadpanned he was going to talk to George Karl and his staff about learning some of the defensive schemes he used in the game to implement with...

A foul taste in thin air

The Magic know a little bit about hard work. Everyone can see Orlando fighting and scrapping in every game. Kenneth Faried's level of effort is just a little bit more some times. On a free throw in a tie game, Faried found his way around Andrew Nicholson and got to the ball before Nicholson could. The two fought the ball to the ground, but Faried got the timeout. Out...

Nuggets, Magic both cry foul in Denver win over Orlando

DENVER -- Orlando has lost heartbreakers, let wins slip away and has been blown out during its 10-game losing streak. Wednesday's game might have topped them all. The Magic saw another fourth-quarter lead slip away in a 108-105 loss to Denver, but after the game it was the head-shaking foul differential that had them baffled. The Magic nearly overcame 19 points and 19 rebounds...

Shane Battier is the best singer ever!

Magic Extend League-Worst Losing Streak to 10

Watching the Magic games over the last few weeks has been like watching the movie Signs over and over again. Each go-around is awesome until the end when someone says “Swing away” and then everything goes awry. The Magic (12-23) held the lead for most of the game until the 4th quarter, when they allowed the Nuggets (21-16) to outscore them 38-28 leading to a final score of 105...
