JJ Redick insists that he did not intentionally use a racial slur toward Chinese people when he took part in a recent video celebrating the Chinese New Year, and the first American-born Chinese player to ever play in the NBA believes him. Shortly after Redick issued an apology on Sunday, Jeremy Lin defended the 76ers guard on Twitter. The video in question featured several NBA players wishing Chinese fans a Happy New Year. A YouTube user called attention to the fact that it sounded like Redick used a racial slur during his portion of the video.
