JJ Redick says UNC ‘inferiority’ dig was a joke


What could be the final game of Mike Krzyzewski’s legendary career as Duke basketball coach has turned into one of the biggest college hoops events possible. The No. 2 seed Blue Devils will take on arch rival UNC, a No. 8 seed that has been riding high since its upset of Duke in the regular season finale at Cameron Indoor Stadium.

If there’s any former Blue Devil that knows how to stir the pot when it comes to the rivalry, it is probably JJ Redick. He is now an analyst at ESPN after a lengthy NBA career, and while he saw a major uptick in popularity as a pro, he is one of the most hated Duke players of all time, and he played the heel on First Take this week, opposite North Carolina football great Jeff Saturday.
