Why compare Randolph to...



  Marion, Garnett, Odom, and Webber? He plays nothing like these guys. I understand that they all play(ed) their positions a little differently than the prototypes at their positions and had unique skill sets, but Randolph doesn't remind me of these guys at all.

  The only guy in the league who really comes to mind is Josh Smith, but that isn't really that good of a match either. Randolph reminds me of Shawn Kemp his first two years in the league... bursting at the seams with athletecism and emotion, raw, out of control, and enthusiastic. He jumps through the roof and runs like a gazelle, but he's too skinny for the post. If he could learn the value of footwork and position, he could develop into a very, very good forward.

  As far as Nellie not playing him consistently, would you? Randolph doesn't pass and hasn't seen a lane full of defenders he didn't like. He's a charging foul waiting to happen. I hope he learns to see the game, and I think Nellie hopes for that too when he benches Randolph.

  All of that said, Randolph could be our golden ticket out of the lottery. He is also, hands down, the most entertaining player on the team, and probably one of the 10 most exciting players in the league. I hold my breath every time he touches the ball. Fortunately, he tends to shoot within 2 seconds of his first touch, so I'm not blue in the face.
