Sixers guard J.J. Redick has long been critical of playing on Christmas Day. Redick, once again, did not shy away from voicing his opinion about suiting up to play during the holiday, which he did after Monday’s 105-98 win over the Knicks. “I’d like to take this opportunity to once again say for I believe the 10th time, I’m not a fan of playing on Christmas,” he said, via ESPN’s Ian Begley. “I wish we had this holiday for our families. I understand we are entertainers we have to provide this for all the basketball fans out there.” We understand that Redick wants to spend the holiday with his family, but there are other players that feel the opposite, and relish playing on the big stage.
