New Orleans Pelicans Shooting Guard JJ Redick has previously offered his social media attitudes and launched another podcast on January 15th.
“I really think so,” said Redick. “There are more people who care about getting a pregame on Instagram fit than worrying about winning and losing a basketball game.”
In September 2018, Redick also spoke about using social media when he deleted all of his social media this year.
“I have this personality in which I get involved with something or not,” said Redick. “I’ve never really felt comfortable with social media.”
“The league’s love of social media is understandable in many ways,” added Redick. “It gives athletes a sense of control over messaging and a degree of personal responsibility for their public image. It can open doors and entertain the crowds. But how much is too much? “
The younger generation of the NBA grew up with social media and is part of their everyday life.
It is clear that Redick looks around the league and realizes that the NBA is full of players tied to their devices. in the bus, on the plane, on the coaching table, in the changing room, at the dining table, because telephones have become inevitable.
