Beverley is of the opinion that his former Clippers teammate (for a very brief period), JJ Reddick, is a better NBA analyst. After co-host Rone asks Beverley, “Who’s your number one in all of the media? It’s got to be Charles Barkley. For his insights, his humor, for the fact that he is been doing it for so long. Luminary. He’s got to be number one.

Patrick Beverley immediately replies, “I like JJ Reddick…see my number two is interesting. My number two and three are the same. Charles Barkley and Shaquille O’Neal.

 

The 76ers star stands his ground and picks JJ Reddick over Charles Barkley as his favorite media person. But why?

Reddick never won an NBA championship nor did he win individual accolades. However, he played his role as an ‘off-the-bench’ sharpshooter very well. His contribution to his teams was definitely positive as he was a diligent student of the game.

After his retirement from the NBA in 2021, he immediately started his sports media career as a podcaster and sports analyst. Currently, he has his own podcast on all social media platforms and is also an analyst for ESPN. JJ Reddick is clearly enjoying his work as he continues to grow his fanbase with his strong opinions and detailed approach to the game.
