When you’re J.J. Redick and you drop 24 points on 10 of 17 shooting, chances are reporters are going to want to speak with you. It isn’t every day that the Clippers’ guard is in the spotlight on a team with the likes of Chris Paul, Blake Giffin and DeAndre Jordan in front of him.
However, Redick got his chance at the spotlight…only it was brief thanks to a Clippers locker room tradition.
Yes, you see Redick tapped on the shoulder by the last Clipper past him because apparently the last man in to the locker room must dance for the rest of the team.
According to @Matt_Winer, JJ was in a hurry because the last Clipper player into the locker room has to dance. JJ wasn't having any of that.

It is unknown if Redick made it to the locker room in time, but he sure made a valiant effort.
For a man who is averaging 14.9 points per game and shooting 47.1 percent from the field (46 percent from three-point range), taking a chance at TV time versus embarrassment from the boys in the locker room?
That’s an easy choice — if you’re Redick.
For the rest of us, getting our hands on the dancing video would’ve been priceless.
