Randolph #27 in Thorpe's Top 50 Rookies

David Thorpe has this latest Rookie Top 50 out and guess what... Anthony Randolph is clocking in at #27. (I mistakingly posted #6, when he was just the 6th observation of Thorpe).

Anthony Randolph, Warriors
There's no question Randolph still does not understand what a good shot is for him. Two-thirds of the shots he takes are perimeter jumpers, and he makes just 26.5 percent of them. It's time he stopped taking them, period.

However, there is also no question that he is a relentless rebounder, as he trails only Love and Greg Oden in the rebound rate category. He is very quick and long, and has a good nose for the ball.

His playing time has been inconsistent this season, and that may not change regardless of what he does. Still, shooting jumpers less (or better yet, not at all) and attacking the rim more seems like a change that will only help his overall production.

 

Relentless rebounder? Isn't that one of things we're missing on the Warriors? Also, is he completely a relentless rebounder or is it just on offense. I've noticed that he's always crashing the boards and lurking for tip dunks. I'm not sure how rentless a rebounder he is on the defensive end.
