Meanwhile, the tweet had mixed reactions. One wrote, “A lot of people are too young to remember JJ at Duke but those who can, probably aren’t too shocked by this story.”

Another replied, “This didn’t come out in his 15-year NBA career why.” Another user said, “And 2 years ago while I was in New York you punched me in the face… see what I did there! I can make up lies from thin air as well lmfaoo.” 

Redick played for Duke from 2002 to 2006; however, Nash did not specify the exact time frame of the alleged incident. Nash claims to have worked with the team in 2003 and 2004 on her LinkedIn profile.
