It's very easy to forget that being traded in professional sports has ramifications beyond the player.
Take JJ Redick's wife Chelsea Redick for example. Just hours before the 2013 NBA Trade Deadline, Chelsea Redick (formerly Chelsea Kilgore), took to Twitter revealing her anxiety.
@annika722: @ChelseaRedick thinking of you my love!!! Im counting down the minutes. If I need a drink right now, I'm sure you about 100! #keepjj
@ChelseaRedick: @annika722 haha! I'm holding up! Just a few anxious hours left!
And just a few anxious hours later, JJ Redick was shipped to the Milwaukee Bucks uprooting the Redick family from Orlando to Milwaukee in the dead of February (we'll let you make your own decisions about how that move sounds). Chelsea Redick's bio reads: Pilates Instructor. Identical twin. Amateur Chef. Wannabe runner. Lover of live music. Haver of husband.
NYC, Orlando, and now Austin. The San Antonio Spurs were interested in Redick, which would have worked out perfectly for the couple to live year round in Austin... but looks like Milwaukee is the newest destination to Chelsea's Twitter bio.
In her time away from leading Pilates classes, Chelsea helps to run the JJ Redick foundation, which bills it's mission statement as driven "to ensure that children understand the possibilities and opportunities that exist through dedication, hard work, and faith." The couple was married on June 26, 2010 after having dated for years.
As the resident Duke fan of the PlayerWives.com staff (and honestly of anyone else in my entire life), I'll always have a soft spot for JJ Redick. I wish him well in Milwaukee, and hope he decides to rock the green & white in Boston come 2013.... there's always a place for a dead on 3 point specialist.JJ Redick's wife Chelsea Kilgore Redick,
