” The time has come for me to be a dad, to stop, to reflect, and to prepare for the next chapter of my life”, so Redick announces his retirement during the last episode of his successful podcast ” The Old Man and the Three “.

“ The last season was difficult for many reasons, injuries, Covid, being away from my family, and not being able to play at the level I wanted. I would define the last year as realizing for 7 long months of my mortality as an athlete, and it was quite scary and hard ”.
