J.J. Redick speaking to Blue Devils today

Earlier this week, former Duke star J.J. Redick was seen working out at the Blue Devils’ practice facility. On Thursday, he spoke to the team and gave them a little motivation for the season that is just around the corner.

Redick was really excited to be back on campus and to get the opportunity to speak to the players of the team that helped make him a legend. He took to Twitter to show his appreciation for the team inviting him to campus to speak.

Always fun to be back at Duke. Enjoying my time working out at the K Center!

Redick spoke with this year’s team and told them how he had to live up to their standards and how it made him a better person overall.

It seems like Redick is backing his alma mater 100 percent when they take the court this season. Will they be able to repeat as national champions for the first time since the 1991 and 1992 tournaments? Redick surely believes in them.
