#parent | #kids | Take a tour of JJ Redick’s ridiculous Brooklyn home with hidden closets

Sharpshooter JJ Redick opted to depart the Sixers for the greener pastures down in New Orleans to play for the Pelicans this offseason, which undoubtedly takes him further away from his Brooklyn home.

Which is probably tough for him, because his pad in Brooklyn is unbelievably sweet.

The home is so cool that it has been featured in Architectural Digest. You can watch Redick give you a guided tour of it in the below video.

Redick gives little nuggets throughout, from “who doesn’t love a good pocket door?” to name dropping the brand of (very expensive) wine glasses they have in their custom bar.

The apartment has some pretty cool Batman-type features like closets and a powder room hidden behind walls in other closets. There’s even custom wall paper made to look like one of his wife’s favorite Louis Vuitton hand bags. Dope if you can afford it. Just like their dual amenities in the bedroom:

“The luxury of this apartment,” Redick says, “is that we had enough space to each get our own spaces. I’m a lot more OCD than Chelsea, so the fact that I can have my own closet and bathroom and it can be exactly the way I want it is amazing.” He turns his eyes toward his wife’s seemingly immaculate mirror-paneled closet, telling her, “But it still bugs me when you leave your dresses out on the chair two days before you wear them.” She playfully counters, “Well, what bugs me is in the middle of the night when you get up and use my bathroom.” Despite his plea that “It’s closer,” she says, “But mine is mine!”

Zhaire Smith’s role with the Sixers isn’t yet clear for this season, but the 20-year-old guard has a future with the team.

General manager Elton Brand confirmed that Wednesday. The team announced it has exercised Smith’s third-year option for the 2020-21 season, worth $3.2 million. 

The Sixers acquired Smith and the Miami Heat’s 2021 first-round pick last year in a draft-night trade with the Phoenix Suns, who received Mikal Bridges. Smith played in six regular-season games his rookie year, averaging 6.7 points and and 2.2 rebounds per game, but that’s far from the whole story. Smith broke his foot in August, then suffered a severe allergic reaction and subsequent complications that led to him losing over 35 pounds. Over time, Smith regained his standout athleticism and rebuilt his jump shot after changing his form to compensate for his loss of strength (see story).

Head coach Brett Brown described Smith during training camp as a “pogo stick” and has praised his talent for on-ball defense, comparing him on multiple occasions to Avery Bradley. However, Smith has not been part of the Sixers’ rotation during the preseason. Brown has acknowledged that development is a great priority for the Sixers with Smith than immediate contribution, especially after everything he went through as a rookie. The emergence of rookie Matisse Thybulle and solid play of Shake Milton during the preseason are further reasons why Smith hasn’t been playing with the Sixers’ regulars. Smith played the entire fourth quarter Tuesday night of the Sixers’ 106-86 win over the Pistons and had seven points and three rebounds.

“It’s just a process, so I’m not worried about it,” he said. “As long as we get the win, it doesn’t matter.”

Given the potential the Sixers saw in Smith — and continue to see — it never seemed plausible that they would decline his third-year option.
