OT: Zach Randolph... first dunk of the season? HUH? 

Post#1 » by tush » Sat Nov 21, 2009 8:54 pm

I can't find a link for this, but when I google the sentence it shows up, whenever i click the link that part of the article is never there.

On my fantasy team, the last update for Zach Randolph says..

" Wed, Nov 18
F Zach Randolph, who scored 21 points and added 8 rebounds, got his first dunk of the season on a nifty pass by Marc Gasol. Randolph laughed all the way down court after the dunk.
(Yahoo! Sports)"

HUH?

First dunk of the season.. seriously?

He's fat, he lives off the space he creates on the offensive end.
He's large and not quick at all or athletic.

It's a typo. By first they mean 230th and "dunk" refers to how many donuts he's ate.

He's leading the league in ORBs too. One more than CB.

He's never been a dunker. He was always very unathletic, and only got more unathletic after wrecking his knee a few years ago. He only had 6 all of last year out of 415 made field goals.

Players with least dunks in the league so far... to note Randolph is not alone out there. Brad Miller, Luis Scola, David West, Nenad Krstic, etc... even the slam dunker J.R. Smith (!!!) is at the botton of that chart! :o

That also makes me want a doughnut. Just one with infinite mass.



And chocolate sprinkles.

Miller and krstic are purely perimiter bigs. West isnt really athletic and is undersized and scola is an all-finesse big (a la rasho).
JR Smith has been serving his suspension most of the year.

i meant it in the way that he chooses layups over dunks and turns easy dunks under the baskets into complicated reverse layups.

I never said he was a good finesse big.




but we can all agree he is the GOAT finesse big, among other things.

Yeah, i know lol.

Anyone notice Amir Johnson likes just dropping the ball in when he is wide open. He is athletic, and should go in for more monster dunks. Dunks = Cash
