Michael Redd    

Former NBA All Star, 2008 Olympic Basketball Gold Medalist

Michael Redd is an American professional basketball player. He was drafted 43rd overall by the Milwaukee Bucks in the 2000 NBA Draft. He was born in Columbus, Ohio, where he attended West High School. He was also a member of the U.S. national basketball team. Standing 6 feet 6 inches tall and weighing 215 pounds, Redd has spent both his collegiate and professional career at the shooting guard position.

The Phoenix Suns signed Redd to a one-year contract in 2011. Redd made his debut for Phoenix scoring 14 points in a loss to the Cavaliers. Redd returned to Milwaukee in early 2012, scoring 14 points in the win over the Bucks. He received a standing ovation from the crowd. Later that year, he scored a season-high 25 points in a victory against the Houston Rockets.

Redd has frequently played for Team USA at the junior level and played in the 2007 FIBA Americas tournament, a qualifying tournament for the 2008 Summer Olympics. During the team's game against Puerto Rico, Redd set the qualifying record for most 3 pointers made in one game. He also set the record of most three pointers made in the whole tournament (28) surpassing Penny Hardaway who had the previous record of 22. Redd participated at the 2008 Olympics as the team went unbeaten on the way to winning back the gold medal after defeating 2006 World Champion Spain and living up to their "Redeem Team" moniker after missing out in the 2004 Summer Olympics.

Redd, a devout Christian, bought a church building for his father's ministry as the first purchase after signing his big contract worth $91 million over 6 years. The church was newly named Philadelphia Deliverance Church of Christ built in his hometown of Columbus.
