Nelly playing games with Randolph

Randolph squeezed out of Warriors’ rotation

Anthony Randolph is the latest player to find room in Don Nelson’s doghouse.

The Golden State Warriors’ promising young forward played in USA Basketball’s minicamp over the summer and was expected to start at power forward. But after Randolph was limited by a preseason back injury he was slow to report, Nelson recently moved swingman Stephen Jackson to power forward because he is “240 pounds” and moved Randolph to backup center behind journeyman Mikki Moore.

“He’s not necessarily a good shooting [power forward], but he can be a good shooting [center] because [centers] can’t shoot very well,” Nelson said of Randolph.

Randolph, who has averaged eight points, 4.7 rebounds and just 14 minutes in three games, is extremely frustrated by the move.

I definitely think so....the

I definitely think so....the reasons for the things he does are retarded. Starting Jackson at PF because he's 240 lbs, and playing Mikki Moore over Randolph just aren't smart. It's actually quite ridiculous.

nelly has always been a bit

nelly has always been a bit of a goofball. He always wants to mix things up and be different. I do think Randolph needs to earn the starting spot, but behind Mikey Moore?...please.

I've grown to dislike Nelly.

I've grown to dislike Nelly. Last season Al Harrington was in the doghouse and then when he got traded, Nelly replaced him with Jamal Crawford. Somebody is always in his doghouse. It makes no sense that Randolph isn't at least in the rotation.

8 PPG and 5 RPG in 14 MPG.

8 PPG and 5 RPG in 14 MPG. Mathematically speaking, this kid would average a double double if he played 28 MPG. Sounds pretty good, don't you think?

Randolph is a monster.
Randolph is a monster.  Nelson has to go.  This same ole story is getting ridiculous. Randolph at least needs to play around 28 minutes a game.  Playing him at Center is stupid.  You don't have to have a great jumpshot to be an effective PF.

I've seen Randolph play in person....he has major skills.  Just needs a smarter coach or at least a coach with common sense haha.

ive seen him play on

ive seen him play on tv....pretty much the same as seeing him in person..lol...i do think nellie needs to play him ore..but people seem to be missing that he always has some flaw that hurt the team when hes in the game that maybe on a worst team he could play through but when you trynna when you tend to go with the sure things in vets and dont really take the time to develop young players because youre on the hot seat...same situation down in new orleans with collins and thortan

There is a pretty big

There is a pretty big difference between watching a player in person & on TV but no sense in arguing about it.

Randolph will get his shine on soon enough.  At least I hope he does ha.

Quincey- How you like living in Bradenton? I wish I was down there...that is paradise.  I've been there many many times.

Nellie

Nellie is a cancer... He just lets the team die a slow and painful death this season by making dumbheaded moves like this one...

Ahem

I've said it before, and I'll say it again...

Randolph is the most overrated player in the league.

butidonthavemoney- How is he the most overrated player in the league?  That is pure ludicrous.

No

What is pure ludicrous is how highly everybody thinks of him. Pre-season and summer-league? Whoo-hoo. I predict an all-star!

Anthony Randolph has done nothing to warrent the praise he gets from people. Specifically the praise he gets from all of you!

I'm not hating on the kid but he is retardedly overrated.

I get your point

That's a good point butidonthavemoney... But we have to go back to the center of cause to why Randolph has yet to blow and that is Nellie... To put him under his so-called doghouse will make him more overrated by the fact that he's not getting enough playing time thus hasn't really shown what he could do... Like I said, Nellie is cancer.

Bah

I've heard the Nellie excuse but I disagree with that arguement. Just because he isn't playing doesn't mean that if he was he would be good. People say the same thing about Jerryd Bayless. Randolph has potential up the yang but I don't think he would get significant playing time on any NBA team right now besides the Grizzlies, Knicks and maybe the Clippers.

Whenever I think of Anthony Randolph I think of the kid who cried after Lamar Odom knocked him to the ground. He needs to man up before he can play NBA basketball.

butidonthavemoney- I see
butidonthavemoney- I see what you are getting at but  I never said Randolph would be an all-star this year.  Maybe some other people on here thought that.  I think he would be a solid starter if Nelson would give him the chance.  His talent is not overrated.  Just remember when Randolph starts balling you will regret all that overrated talk.  My opinion has never even been altered by summer league.  I was the original one on here hyping Randolph & Morrow way before summer league.  You can look up old post ha.

I can't speak for everybody

I can't speak for everybody else here, but I'm not basing it off of pre-season and summer league. I expect a lottery pick who got decent minutes during his rookie season to dominate during summer league. I'm basing it off of what he showed during his 1st year. This guy has serious length, athleticism and underrated ball-handling ability. He can't really shoot, but that can come with time. He just has to keep working hard to improve his game. You are more than titled to your opinion of Randolph, but so are we. I believe that the sky is the limit for Anthony Randolph.

Summer League

Summer League performances are baseless. They don't translate what the player is going to be in the NBA. Prime examples, well, Anthony Randolph and Jerryd Bayless. These two have so much potential and it showed in the summer games but it NEVER meant that they're going to be a star immediately in the NBA... Like I said, what happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas..LOL

Gator

I won't point to specific posters but people have clearly been overhyping him since the summer league. I'm not talking about you gatorheels. I didn't say, "Gatorheels is overhyping Randolph." But in general he is terribly overrated.

Randolph has already started balling.

That was a scary incident and for a young guy like Randolph, he has that reason to be scared after that nasty fall not to mention he got called for a foul...

Haha

I hope I'm wrong. I want Randolph to suceed. I really don't care whether or not you guys are right. I give you permission to pull this topic up after his first 20 point game this season and say "I TOLD YOU SO!"

These are just my thoughts, I never called myself an expert.

Any other "I thought it was... Randolph" jokes after those two are going to suck so let's just stop there.
