During the closing minutes of the Washington Wizards wednesday night 106-93 victory over the Milwaukee Bucks, J.J. Redick was fouled and headed to the line for 2 shots. With a big Wizards lead and the Verizon Center having fun for a change, the crowd was quite fired up for the occasion.
Let's take a listen to what happened:
The fans serenaded the former Duke Blue Devil and ACC/All Basketball villain with a very loud and audible "JJ Sucks! JJ Sucks!" chant much to the delight of Martell Webster who encouraged the fans to keep up the noise. The TV coverage panned the laughing/cheering crowd as Redick missed his first foul shot after the chant. Chant Don't Lie!
Steve Buckhantz and Phil Chenier found it quite amusing as well. Here's what they were saying:
Buck - "And the fans here expressing their appreciation to JJ Redick, and he misses the foul shot"
Phil - "He doesn't miss many so they need some credit, Martell calling for the crowd to do it again"
Good times when the Wizards win!
