Randolph hasn't done anything crazy since he got traded to Memphis so don't trip, he is a beast
Yea, Danny was the most disappointing. Not sure why we didn't switch Rush to him.
Zach Randolph Drug Investigation: NBA All-Star Called 'Major Marijuana Supplier'
no it was 2009
Never charged with anything never even came close to being charged with anything. A friend was watching all of his things in Indy and dealt weed then pointed the finger at Randolph so he wouldn't go to prison.
edit: That's the way that I see it since he was never charged.

I, for one, am sick of watching Foster choke on the last play of every close game. Sit his *** down in those situations already!
I remember when he was still on the blazers and Marion threw him a big party and he *****ed and moaned that he didn't think it was big enough they quoted him in the local newspaper. I was really shocked that it didn't get made out to be a bigger deal by the national media. I had always heard the guy was a douchebag but that was pretty much the clincher.
We're 2-4 in the last 6.
Foster took the shot at 30.9 in regulation because the Pacers were working a short clock to make sure they could get the ball back. Foster also missed that shot because it was tipped up slightly by the defender, which is why it hit the front of the rim. That wasn't some sort of garbage play, it was essentially the same as taking the shot before the clock expires.
AJ was in because he was defending the living daylights out of Nash. Usually Nash gets a bunch of points off the pass back in the pick and roll, when AJ was on him I'd venture to say he got NONE from that play. The problem was the double from the wing to defend the PNR, which is how Grant was wide open something like 5 times through the game.
We lost due to a sloppy beginning of the game, the ridiculous losing track of the shot clock, and turnovers - both teams shot almost the same but the Suns ended up with 15 more attempts than the Pacers did. You can't let that happen. It also was crazy how we were almost totally kept out of the paint by the Suns - and when we could get into Roy in the post, he did his usual "wait for another defender to move toward him before making a play". When we started attacking the basket on drives was when we started to make up ground in the late 3rd and 4th quarters.
The foul to give situation is interesting. It seems to me that the players with the ball at the end for Phoenix were all strong and crafty enough to get into a shooting motion when being fouled. I think Vogel wanted just to let the defense play out and if a foul came in the course of play, fine. Not certain that is a mistake or just a huge gamble.
Another night, another backside-kicking. They just hit you from so many sides, now, in waves. It's like a cavalry, running down hill and trampling you underfoot. You have no tactical advantage, you're just swinging wildly in the mud, and the best strategy might be to play dead.
They are an absolute onslaught right now.

So after seeing McRoberts overal performance after these 2 games since the trade deadline, I can't not believe any of you would prefer to have him on this team over OJ Mayo knowing that we need a player who can get his own shot. Just utter sillyness.
“People talk about how quiet he [McKey] is, but he’s really been helpful. He gives a lot of insight to players in how to guard certain teams and what their weaknesses are. The whole team listens to him, and it makes my job a lot easier. Having players like him is what pro basketball is all about for me.” —Larry Brown
You had Josh make the late layup WITH FOUL for the 3pt play to tie it. You had Rush in Frye's face defending the final shot he hit.
PnR was a problem with JOB and Vogel just isn't going to be able to overhaul the actual strategy this quickly. I don't know if he's the answer, but he sure as F isn't ruining anything.
The team was dying a pathetic death without even doing any youth development. They weren't going to make the playoffs, so expecting it now is still silly.
It's certainly a realistic goal in the sense of achieving it, but it's a bit like the gravy on top of just getting the development process back on track.
Would JOB have let AJ run things late in the game, or let Josh be in there to tie the game up, or have Rush on the floor late or let Lance play at all....
Perspective people. I just don't get the attitudes, maybe it's an age thing.
