Wizards’ fans chant “Redick Sucks” and he misses free throw

J.J. Redick is a 90.5 percent free throw shooter this season — he does miss, just not very often.

But at the end of an already-decided game Wednesday night Redick drove and drew the foul. As he went to the line some Wizards fans started a “Red-ick Sucks” chant, as fans are prone to do (if he missed both it was free Chick Fil-A sandwiches for the crowd, apparently).

And Redick missed the first shot. Which brought cheers from the crowd and motions from Martell Webster to keep it going. Didn’t help, Redick drained the next one.

It was a little note on a little-noticed game, but it amused me. So we bring it to you.
