After officially being hired by the Los Angeles Lakers as the team’s new head coach and successor to Darvin Ham, JJ Redick spoke to the media earlier this week, on his 40th birthday, to be exact, about his plan for his stint with the storied franchise moving forward.

With Redick having zero coaching experience and being an odd choice to replace someone who went to the NBA playoffs in consecutive seasons, the team and the former player-turned-head coach were bound to receive a fair amount of criticism and skepticism about his career change.

However, Redick was quite impressive during his introductory conference held by the team at their practice facility in El Segundo, as he showed how sharp he is as well as how confident he is now that he’s taken on the tall task of being the head coach of the 17-time NBA champions.

Although Redick did help his case as a result of the press conference, there are some who are still very skeptical about his intentions and whether he can do the job, like Nick Wright of FOX Sports via First Things First.

“JJ Redick, in my opinion, did that press conference to impress Twitter. … If you coach the Lakers to impress Twitter, you will not succeed,” Wright said.

Ultimately, Redick will be judged by wins and losses during his first of potentially four or more seasons with the storied franchise, as that is all that matters moving forward for the team and the fans.

However, the odds are against him succeeding, and the criticism will come hand in hand with every loss he suffers in Los Angeles.
