Player Comparison

New, comments

In light of the fact Orlando continues to be stung by the injury bug, primarily at the wing position (Mickael Pietrus, Keith Bogans), shooting guard J.J. Redick has been forced into action as a result and the returns this time around have been solid. He's contributed, which is an improvement over his play that stashed him deep into the bench just a few weeks prior. However, the former Duke star can't escape the inevitable.

To honor a former Magic player from the way-back era, I've decided that I want to play a game today. Consider this post as my 'tape recorder'. 

 

Below I present two players.

 

Player A

Season 1 - 6.0 PPG, PER (13.0)

Season 2 - 4.1 PPG, PER (12.7) 

Season 3 - 4.8 PPG, PER (7.9) 

 

Player B

Season 1 - 3.1 PPG, PER (10.5) 

Season 2 - 4.2 PPG, PER (16.9)

Season 3 - 6.6 PPG, PER (13.6)

 

One of these two players is indeed Jonathan Clay Redick. The other player, however, can not be named. It can be stated that this former Magic player is the long lost step-brother, of sorts, to Redick. He's a person that shares similar traits to Redick in many ways. If the two stood side-by-side to each other, the differences between one another would be nearly indistinguishable. 

 

Can you decipher who is who? Make your choice.

J.J. Redick [6'4'', Shooting Guard]

Season 1 - 6.0 PPG, PER (13.0)

Season 2 - 4.1 PPG, PER (12.7) 

Season 3 - 4.8 PPG, PER (7.9) 

 

Brooks Thompson [6'4'', Shooting Guard]

Season 1 - 3.1 PPG, PER (10.5) 

Season 2 - 4.2 PPG, PER (16.9)

Season 3 - 6.6 PPG, PER (13.6)

 

If you guessed Brooks Thompson as the enviable link to J.J. Redick, congratulations, you have won the game. 

 

But if you didn't, be lucky that the penalty isn't impending death.

 

Until next time.
