New Orleans Pelicans shooting guard JJ Redick hasn’t been shy about offering his takes on social media in the past, and he let another one fly on his eponymous podcast Wednesday (h/t NBA on ESPN):

Redick also told ESPN’s Zach Lowe in September 2018 (h/t Enrico Campitelli of NBC Sports) that he deleted all his social media.

I have this personality where I’m all in on something or I’m off of it,” he told Lowe. With social media, I’ve never felt completely comfortable with it.“

Redick is in his 14th NBA season.
