If I was to compare Randle with someone in recent years, I would have to pick Elton Brand. Both are undersized. Randle has an endless motor on the offensive side, he is going to average 3-4 OReb a game if given the playing time. Similar to Elton Brand, who was always getting OReb. Randle doesn't have much of a 3 point shot, but I see him developing a very good mid range game similar to Brand. Neither will wow you on the defensive side, maybe a block a game.


Elton Brand has a freakish wingspan, IIRC.

 

 

He did. Something like a 7'4 or 5 wingspan.

 

 

7' 5.5", with a standing reach of 9'2". In 2013, Randle measured a 6'11" wingspan and a 8' 9.5" reach at the Nike Hoops Summit. For what its worth, he is significantly taller than Williamson who measured at 6'5.5".

Will be interesting to see what the raptors do with Lowry. there are a lot worse things then a legit big that can go 17/10.

I don't think Masai will want to overpay for him but I think a lot of whatever momentum they've picked up during this season (especially if they pickup a playoff series win) will feel lost if he walks. He seems to want to stay and hopefully that plays a small role in asking price as he has had issues with his situations in the past. I hope they work something out, they really need to try to keep him if they want to keep moving forward.

 

 

If there is one complaint about Ujiri, its that he has overpaid for in house talent in the past.

Not much to look forward to as a Nuggets fan for the near future, as they are above the through next year and have a ####ty team. But, Kenneth Faried really showed something in the second half of the season. From the All Star Game, he averaged 18.8 points and 10.1 rebounds with a .584 TS% (and 70% from the line!). If his improvements hold into next season, the Nuggies might just be able to sneak into the playoffs next year to get swept in four games. Long live Brian Shaw.

Bizarre rockets game. Blew a 15 point lead. Down 11 with five minutes to go. Win by 5.

 

Against a Nuggets team that is a Kenneth Faried injury away from being the 76ers.


In Topic: Which comedians to see?

03 April 2014 - 10:08 AM

Just saw Anthony Jeselnik for the first time, worth every penny if you like his style (I do, maybe my current favorite comedian at the moment). Going to Aziz in May, one of my/wife's favorites on XM, hope he's almost as good as Jeselnik. Wife wanted to see Amy Schumer, just missed her show though because of the night she was in town here.

 

Jeselnik is the only comedian I have ever been disappointed with live. I love his comedy, but I saw him a year or so ago soon after Comedy Central premiered one of his specials, and probably half of his jokes were from that, with another quarter of his jokes from various other things I've seen or heard from him. Most of his jokes are one liners or very short stories, so I see why he reuses jokes, but it was disappointing.
