Basketball is a sport where we sometimes forget about great players of the past. Michael Redd is one of those players his peers will always recognize. The casual fan may not remember his name, but thanks to Youtube a simple search will educate anyone! Michael Redd played during the prime of Kobe Bryant, Tracy McGrady, Vince Carter, and Allen Iverson. Those are all future hall of famers who just had star power you couldn’t ignore off the court.
On the court, Michael Redd was a sharp shooter! The lefty out of Ohio could shoot it from anywhere on the court! I’m talking off-the-dribble, hand in his face, off-screens, catch & shoot, whatever you wanted he could give you. My love for basketball always led my judgement and made me appreciate every style of play. Michael Redd is one of those guys who could just get it done.
I mean let’s check out the resumè of Michael Redd:
