JJ Redick shared his thoughts on the restart of the NBA in Orlando, Florida on July 30.

Redick said the decision to play in Orlando was not a difficult one, as he felt a responsibility to his team.

“To say that we have any comfort level would be a lie. There is no comfort level. We’re not with our families; we’re not at our homes; we’re isolated in a bubble in the middle of a hot spot in the middle of Florida—while there’s social unrest going on in the country and we’re three months away from potentially the most important election in our lifetimes.

So there’s all that going on,” Redick said in a statement, via Malika Andrews of ESPN.
