Clippers' J.J. Redick sprints away from postgame interview
Tuesday December 15th, 2015

The Clippers won a close game over the Pistons on Monday night, and when it was over J.J. Redick simply could not wait to get back into the locker room with his teammates.

• Everyone on Twitter made fun of LeBron’s cool coat

It turns out Redick had a good reason to sprint off the court mid-sentence, as the Los Angeles team has a tradition of forcing the last player back into the locker room to dance for his teammates, which also explains why the veteran was looking around cagily during the short interview.

Redick’s odd behavior on Monday was not confined to the postgame as he also tried to grab a piggyback ride from Andre Drummond late in the fourth quarter of the Clippers 105–103 win.
