JJ Redick is one of the most efficient three-point shooters in the league the last 10 seasons, but his favorite player from this era is another shooter.

In his podcast, Redick was joined by former NBA player and current Twitter sensation Rex Chapman, who chose Klay Thompson as the best sixth player in the shooting guard position.

The Pelicans’ sharpshooter agreed with Chapman.

“I love the pick,” Redick said per NBC Sports Drew Shiller. “I didn’t think Klay was going to go this high. I had him a little lower on my board, and I would have liked to have ended up with him.

He is one of my favorite current players, absolutely. Everything you said about him is so true. He’s a competitor, man. Low maintenance, ‘I’m going to go out and bust your a– on both ends.’ He’s unbelievable.”

Thompson has earned his stripes being three-time NBA champion, five-time All-Star and two-time third-team All-NBA selection, while he has also named second-team All-Defense in 2018-19.
