JJ Redick revealed that all the players he has spoken to in the NBA want to finish the 2019/20 season, even if there are no fans in attendance.

The guard of the New Orleans Pelicans has never missed the playoffs in his pro career and hopes his team will have the chance to fight for the eighth place in the West.

“As a player, I just want to finish the season, whatever form or shape that is. We don’t expect to play in front of fans or anything like that, but we do want to finish this season and play as many games as possible.

Everybody that I’ve talked to, everybody wants to finish the season. For us, I’ve talked to a bunch of my teammates from the Pelicans, we want to have some sort of regular season that gives us a chance to get the No. 8 seed and make the playoffs.

Our worst-case scenario for an NBA season is that we jump right into the playoffs and we don’t get a chance to get that No. 8 seed,” Redick said in an appearance on ESPN’s “Get Up”.
