Players from across the NBA arrived in Disney World this week in preparation to resume the NBA season. JJ Redick decided to start a little Twitter challenge. David Griffin was not a fan, but Redick told him that it was happening.
Yesterday, Redick posted on Twitter saying that if his tweet got 10,000 retweets, he would shotgun a Budlight during post practice recovery. I think it is safe to say that JJ knew what he was doing as the tweet had over 2,500 retweets in the first 20 minutes. President of Basketball Operations for the Pelicans, David Griffin, jokingly tried to stop the challenge from taking place, but Redick told him to buzz off.
Shotguns And Ice Baths
The tweet ended up getting almost 11k retweets, and then Twitter waited. Would JJ Redick keep his word and shotgun a Bud? Of course he did. Redick did so in the most relaxing fashion, chilling in an ice bath. Almost looked like had done it before…
Redick kept his word and Twitter enjoyed. This will be life in the NBA until play resumes on July 30th. I don’t know about you, but I am excited to see what other challenges we see before it is all said and done. Hold it.
