Someone give Randolph a chance!!!

Minny is a horrible spot for him to be in with the situation at PF. But everytime he gets solid minutes, he has produced this season. Look at the gamelogs...

http://www.nba.com/playerfile/anthony_randolph/game_by_game_stats.html

Any game he has gotten around 20 minutes. he has shined. This kid needs PT deseperately. Just wanted to raise awareness.

this theory of "he's produced

this theory of "he's produced when given minutes" can be misleading.

because he's been given minutes when he's shinning

If that was it then he'd be

If that was it then he'd be getting 30-40 minutes in those games cuz he is killing it. Plus at the end of the year last year he was getting a starter role for a minute and was producing like a madman then as well.

He might get his chance soon,

He might get his chance soon, but Pek is coming back on Friday, but he has bone spurs and will need surgery at the end of the season, and it's likely the pain will be too much and he'll shut it down, and Milicic is in the doghouse, and if D-Will gets in foul trouble, he might get some time.

But unfortunatly it doesn't look like he'll get any sort of consistent time unless Beas or D-Will get hurt, but he has shown in limited minutes that he will play well when given the chance.

Where is he going to play,

Where is he going to play, cuz he aint playing the 4 with Kevin Love.

As a GS fan there is something always missing with Randolph. He has been on 3 teams and every team uses the word I hate the most...potential. Fact is, the dude cant spell fundamentals if you gave him the first 11 letters in the 12 letter word.

I have been impressed in his

I have been impressed in his limited time. When he has gotten time on the court this year he really showed a lot of effort.. What did surprise me early in the year was the chemistry he had with Rubio. His athleticism around the rim really could be put on display by a Rubio who always looks for easy scoring opportunities for his teammates.. I prefer that type of scoring to isolation plays for Beasley..

I remember when Love missed

I remember when Love missed the last 10 games or something like that last year, Randolph averaged like 25 ppg.

He obviously has some flaws

becasue he's never been more than a third PF anywhere. Name a team where he could be the second PF. I dont know every teams roster intimately enough to comment, so I'm asking. Then I'm asking how can he get there. Seems like there's been talk of his potential forever, so I wonder what his contract situation is. Surely he's not still on his rookie deal. Is his contract too bad to trade? There's a point where talent and potential should mesh into a good player.

he might be good and able to

he might be good and able to break out, but when 3-4 years have passed and no coach has deemed you worthy of minutes, im guessing there is a reason. He isnt physical enough for a pf and he doesnt shoot well for a sf. He is a bit of an odd type player who doesnt have any clear role on the court

New Jersey

I feel like the Nets could take a gamble on him. He could be a back up to Humphries and actually get some constitant minutes maybe. They are going to have to rebuild because they will lose Williams to free agency this summer.

Oddly enough, I was thinking

Oddly enough, I was thinking about Randolph as a possible player on the Celtics. That team needs to start thinking post-big three and Randolph, IMO, would be a low-risk/high reward guy. That team hasn't had an athletic PF who can get out on the break with Rondo consistently. Rondo would make it so much easier for him and Doc would keep him in check.

I think Randolph has to find

I think Randolph has to find the right team. Humpries went to a whole bunch of teams before he found the right one. Lin could be out of the league if not for injuries to the Knicks and GSW letting him go. Sometimes it is about being in the right situation. I remember before Humpries was traded to Dallas, I was wondering why he was not playing when he was grabbing boards like crazy when he got minutes. A lot of those boards were offensive. He starts getting consistent minutes and all of a sudden, he is a break out player when he was doing some of that already in the few big minutes game he had. I think Randolph has found his game but there are too many player ahead of him. Now is the time where he need to go to a team that will just play him. New Orleans needs a pf and some does Charlotte.

OKC could use an athletic big man off the bench who can dunk, board, and block shots.
Besides Nick Collison the Thunder don't have a lot of frontline help off the bench.

He could be more of an energy/athletic guy off the bench who could play with either Ibaka or
Perkins. He wouldn't be the true fourth option off the bench but I think he could give them 7 or 8 points a
night.

It would also be fun to see a lineup of Westbrook, Harden, Durant, Anthony Randolph, and Serge Ibaka.
And, if they met the Bulls in the Finals he could be a good counter to Taj Gibson. He would also allow
them to go big off the bench with him and Nick Collison at forward and Nazr Mohammed at center.

Hornets make the most sense

Hornets make the most sense to me, but I could see Celts or Nets.

San Antonio Spurs

I think the San Antonio Spurs would be the best spot for Randolph. Thier current big man rotation is Duncan, Blair, Splitter, Bonner, and Diaw (they use Leanord at the 4 some as well). We all know that Duncan's career is winding down. Diaw is only on for a year. So if Duncan retires the Spurs big man rotation next season would be Blair, Splitter, and Bonner. I think a guy like Randolph with the coaching of Coach Pop would breakout. Could see him having an impact for them much like Jermanine O'Neal did when he was moved to The Pacers.

Not sure whether Duncan is

Not sure whether Duncan is retiring or not. There is no doubt Tim Duncan is still a valuable nba player. As far as Randolph is concerned even if Duncan doesn't retire I think they still need help on that frontline and I could see him playing beside Duncan.

Here is the funniest fact no one has brought up

DYMES, see all of those L's in front of the results where Anthony Randolph is playing over 20 minutes? The team is 3-11 in games in which he has played over 10 minutes. It may not be all his fault, but that is not a great indication of his tearing it up. If you call going for 18 and 2 in 29 minutes against Chicago "shining", than suit yourself. My bottom line? I think he is rarely getting these minutes for a reason. When Anthony Tolliver is being praised over you, odds are you are not doing something.

So this kid isn't just good

So this kid isn't just good on NBA2k12?! I thought he was the modern day Jonathan Bender for me; nice/unstoppable on video games but very average/stoppable in real life.

@nbanflguy

Yeah. that 25 ppg thing didn't happen exactly. The Wolves went 4-19 with Randolph on the roster. They also went from March 13 to April 13 without winning a game, losing 14 in a row. Last season, Randolph's teams (well, mainly the Wolves as he only had one such game with the Knicks) went 1-11 when he played over 20 minutes.

He averaged 17.9 ppg and 7.2 rpg in those games, but the lack of wins has to be of some concern. Just so happens, here are some of the games people had against the Timberwolves when Randolph was playing over 20 minutes:

March 2, 2011 Detroit: Randolph (19 and 10 in 25 minutes, impressive), Austin Daye 22 points, Greg Monroe 18 and 11, Charlie Villanueva 13 off the bench (Kevin Love had 20 and 20, lone Wolves win with Randolph playing over 20)

March 4, 2011 Philly: Randolph (12 and 2 in 27), Thaddeus Young 16 and 8 in 32, Marreese Speights 7 and 6 in 15 mins

March 13, 2011 GSW: Randolph (8 and 2 in 20), Louis Amundson 11 and 7 in 19

March 20, 2011 Sacramento (Game Love got hurt): Randolph (14 and 4 in 24), Samuel Dalembert goes for 26 and 17 (!), Jason Thompson 6 and 8 in 27, Donte Greene goes for 13 points in 14 minutes

March 24, 2011 Dallas: Duels Dirk to a virtual stand still. Nowitzki finishes with 30 (12-26 FG) and 11, Randolph with 31 (14-20 FG) and 11 in similar minutes. Impressive, Wolves still lose, Peja gets 16 points in 26 mins of back-up work

March 25, 2011 OKC: Randolph plays 37 minutes and goes for 24 and 15. Meanwhile, OKC has Ibaka go for 12 and 10, Kendrick Perkins go for 13 and 5, Nick Collison score 13 and Nazr Mohammed score 14. Yes, all of their big man rotation goes for double digits

April 5, 2011 New Jersey: Randolph goes for 20 and 10 in 30. No big bench bigs on NJ, Kris Humphries not playing and Brandan Wright goes for only 5 and 2 in 19. However, Brook Lopez gets 30 and 12 and Sasha Vujacic gets 17 and 10 rebounds (!)

April 6, 2011 Phoenix: Randolph gets 19 and 3 in 29 minutes. Hakim Warrick gets 17 and 3 in 28 minutes. Channing Frye has a donut and 5 boards in 27, Marcin Gortat goes for 20 and 16

April 9, 2011 Denver: Randolph 13 and 6 in 22. Al Harrington and Kosta Koufos go for 12 and 11 respectively in less than 19 minutes of PT for each. Nene, Kenyon Martin and Kosta combine for 15-18 FG.

April 11, 2011 Phoenix: Randolph gets 24 and 10 in 33. Channing Frye has 33, Jared Dudley has 26, Marcin Gortat has 17 and Hakim Warrick scores 11 in 15 mins

April 13, 2011 Houston: Randolph gets 23 and 4 in 33. Patrick Patterson goes for 14 and 4, Chase Budinger has 35 and Goran Dragic goes for an 11-11-11 triple dub

Is this saying that Randolph is fully responsible for these performances? No, but he certainly was guarding at least a few of these players when they pretty much went off over what they normally do. Also a complete comdemnation of Darko and definitely Michael Beasley for their defensive efforts. Sorry to say though, but I have a hard time getting on the Anthony Randolph's potential sympathy train. I always wanted the guy to do well, but when a guy does not get minutes, sometimes there is a reason behind it.

Watching the games last year

Watching the games last year when he was starting, his D looked fine in comparison to others on the team. Its not stellar by any means but he can cover 3s and weak 4s, as well as help side D on bigs as seen by his swats.

at the beginning of the year

at the beginning of the year he really played well and was with tolliver the player who benefited the most of rubio's arrival.

but he slightly disappeared.... he can be good but can he make his team win some games ? If I were charlotte or new jersey I would have tried to land him and give him 25 minutes a game. The season wass already over for them before the trade deadline.

Seriously? Everyone in the

Seriously? Everyone in the NBA is good and can produce when given minutes. John Lucas III can fill it up, but does that mean he should be starting for someone? Garbage time isn't hardly the best indicator of production either.

The fact of the matter is that Anthony Randolph isn't good enough to start for any team. It's not that no one is giving him a chance, he has a chance to earn minutes every day in practice and everytime he hits the court in meaningful minutes. It's just that Derrick Williams and Anthony Tolliver are beating him out for a spot in practice.

Winning matters most in the NBA, Chandler Parsons is starting and Marcus Morris is collecting DNP - Coach's Decisions. If Randolph were really outplaying Williams or Tolliver everyday he'd be playing more and they'd be at the end of the bench.

This was the stretch I was talking about. So I guess it was 7 games instead of 10. So i guess it was like 21 ppg when he got playing time.

"March 24, 2011 Dallas: Duels Dirk to a virtual stand still. Nowitzki finishes with 30 (12-26 FG) and 11, Randolph with 31 (14-20 FG) and 11 in similar minutes. Impressive, Wolves still lose, Peja gets 16 points in 26 mins of back-up work

My point is, yea he's

My point is, yea he's producing with "garbage time" but he also was killing it as a starter too. He needs a chance to get a month going on average for around 30 minutes per game. Not in Minny, but somewhere. I think he's ready. He really showed me something last year at the end and I wanna see if can do that regularly.

I think he might be able to given a real opportunity.

Why are people ignoring his attitude

I think he has an attitude problem... You can't argue that he should not be playing at all based off his production... But here warriors were happy to trade him... He never got time with the Knicks... The nuggets didn't want him in the melo deals... And the wolves have buried himon their bench... I know he does take some dumb shot and doesn't pass much so he might be someone that no one wants to play with... He'll be a free agent ... I like home on Boston... If kg can't straighten him out, then he doesn't deserve to be in the league...
