Yeah, I seen this the other day, I was impressed. If he's willing to take this serious and work hard, then he could work out well for us.

If he comes in with the attitude that he showed in the video, then I'll happy to be proved wrong. If he shows that he's not all about stats and is going to help the team, then I think things won't be as bad as I originally thought.

He mentioned in the video that he's happy to be playing with a young and talent group of guys, maybe I'm reading too much into it, but maybe he realises that he's not going to be as relied upon as he often is.

solid player, but he really needs to start passing the ball and his defense is non existent.

I dont mind him being a little assertive on the court. But I dont want him dominating all of the shots.

Something I learned from watching him last season with the Clippers is that he can rebound like crazy, and he is able to make the most unopportune shots..

At the very least he is able to contribute enought to take a bit of pressure off of the Grizz's big men..

Zach is very underrated due to the amount of hate he receives. I haven't watched the video yet, and don't need to tell you guys that this guy gives it out all on the court. I mean, he has zero athleticism compared to premier fours in the league like Amare, and even Gasol, but he still puts up a solid 20/10. He can score in a variety of ways (back to the bucket, facing up jumper, taking man off the dribble and can even knock down treys!!), which makes him a huge threat for the opposing squad. He also works his ass off for the rebounds, and is quite successful.

On the defensive end, he isn't good, but this is not due to a lack of effort, but due to a lack of talent and athleticism. He simply doesn't have the lateral quickness to be a good defender, but he still is solid.

I mean, yes, the guy is a blackhole sometimes, but that is due to his confidence and he gets a lot of his hate because he has always been on shitty teams. Hopefully the Grizzlies can turn this around by next season and people stop hating on Randolph due to his undeserved rep from the "Jailblazer" days.

He should be even more effective now that he has arrived in training camp 15 pounds lighter..

I hope he can stay healthy enough to contribute, it will be interesting how good the Grizz do if he stuffs the stats..

Hopefully, just hopefully he can take a more minor role and help this Grizzlies team. I'd love to see him become a useful player rather than a statpadder.

I have ALWAYS liked ZBO.

I never understood why ppl have hated him so bad over the years?

I've always thought that for a fat guy, he can get the job done.

things that ive never liked were that he doesnt really pass the ball, or doesnt play defense. But when he played for the clippers, he just reassured my thinking.

WTF? does this guy get bashed for?

He is a BEAST. auto 20/10.

maybe if he lost some weight and gained some muscle?

idk but his arms look small for a big.

Simple, he was the last piece of the "Jail-Blazers" and that reputation has stuck by him.
