The poetry of JJ Redick: No bandage can cover my scars/ It's hard living a life behind invisible bars

i'm not a poetry critic or anything, but I think they are pretty good. I'm more impressed with his courage to print something so personal. On the court, he is my favorite player to watch in college basketball this year. His game the other night, particularly the second half, against UNC was fun to watch. I haven't seen a shooter like him in awhile.

Not only is he talented on the court but he has some talent when it comes to writing, I believe he definetly will become someone because he knows where all his help comes from, it comes from above.

not bad. way too religious for me. but not bad. great basketball player. i am very impressed with is abilities on the court. as for his writing....its not something he could make a living off of, but he does seem to have a fairly vast vocabulary and puts it to good use.

At the risk of sounding rude, I think W.B. Yeats has a better jump shot than this kid has a sense of meter. And Yeats is dead.

I can't see what my future has in store but I move forth with the strength of a condor Oh, dear. This sounds like a 12 year old kid from Plano's battle-rhyme book.

You guys are kidding me right? This is one of the worst poetry I've ever read. It really does sound like he ripped off Creed.
