Who is Anthony Randolph?
Randolph is a player who just completed his fourth season in the NBA. In those four seasons he has played for three different teams and all three teams have been content to let him go. Do me a favor and do not judge him based on that introduction. (more…)
Few NBA players are as heavily branded with a reputation as JaVale McGee. He runs the wrong way. He tries to dunk from too far away. He is a knucklehead. Of course there is more to the story. He may not be the second coming of a certain Hall of Fame center as George Karl intimated after the game last night, but he is a talented player with a lot going for him.
Searching for a more complete profile I reached out to Kyle Weidie from the TrueHoop Network Wizard’s blog Truth About It. Kyle was very generous in providing a more in depth summary of McGee than Youtube does, although Youtube is indeed useful as you will see below (I especially encourage you to read about his mom).
Kenneth Faried has played his first game as a Denver Nugget. Of course, the blue trim on his jersey was several shades darker than the light blue the Nuggets are now known for and he was not running alongside Ty Lawson, Arron Afflalo and Nene. He was part of the Jimmer All-Stars who suited up in Provo, Utah on Thursday, September 22nd.
Kalen did a great job of documenting the overwhelming consensus of Faried’s physicality from those who witnessed his performance. However, I have had Dish Network for years and happened to recall one of the many channels I have never watched was called BYUTV. It donned on me that seeing as how Jimmer Fredette is as important to Utah as Paul Bunyan is to Minnesota and Jeffrey Dahmer is to Wisconsin, they probably televised the game. Lo and behold, despite the fact we are smack dab in the middle of football season I was discovered a replay of the game and was able to view the Nuggets new acquisition with my very own eyes.
