Philadelphia 76ers guard JJ Redick hosted a podcast with Orlando Magic rookie Mo Bamba this week, and things got pretty wild.
After Redick did a photoshoot with a clothing company, the brand arranged a car to take him home to Brooklyn. As he put his bags into the trunk of the car, he noticed a smell, but one that he said “didn’t smell like dog food or dog shit.”
A weird smell, but not one of the offensive variety. He thought nothing of it and got into the car with his wife Chelsea and sister-in-law Kylee.His Sister in law noticed that there was a person in the trunk, which wasn’t walled off from the rest of the car. Redick turned around, and noticed a large blanket that was moving slightly, covering either a box or cage. Redick asked the driver to pull over.
We jumped out of the car immediately. Chelsea just kinda doesn’t know what’s going on. And I’m like—as I was getting in the car I noticed the blanket was moving—“Sir, you have something in the trunk in your car. Do you know what that is? Is there something in the trunk of your car?” And he’s like, “No, I don’t have anything back here.” And I say, “Well, can I get my stuff out?” So he pops the trunk and I kinda—as fast as I can, ‘cause it’s New York City, you don’t know … I’ve seen this blanket move, I don’t know what this is, is it a python? Is it a robber? I don’t know
More to the mystery below:
And so he lifts the blanket up, but like towards the window, so that the blanket is facing up, so we couldn’t see cause we were on the sidewalk, perpendicular to the car, not behind the car. And he’s like “No, there’s nothing in here. There’s nothing in here.” And he closes the blanket back, and then he closes the trunk.And as he’s like walking around to the front seat, a head pops up. [Bamba laughs loudly]It’s the—no, this is not funny. There’s a back of a female’s head. She’s—blonde hair, there’s a ponytail, and based on the size of the box or cage that this person is in, it’s like either, like a very small human, or a child. And I’m like—we all saw it, right?So he drives off, and then Kylee, now at this point, is like, “Are you sure? Was that a dog? Was that a dog with a very furry tail?” And she’s like, “No. The reason I said there was a person is because I saw movement in my peripheral—out of my right eye. So I turned around, and the blanket was moving. So when I looked back, half of a human face came out of the blanket. I saw a woman’s eyes, woman’s face, woman’s blonde hair.”
Um JJ, next time call the cops. Please.
