I agree with you, hometheaterguy. I think Media takes away from Randolph, by always pointing out his negatives. These are the facts. I'm not making this up. On the 2005-2006 season, the Trailblazers won just 21 games. Then, on the 2006-2007 season, With Zach Randolph, Brandon Roy, and Lamarcus Aldridge all on the team, the Blazers improved to 32-50. That's an 11 game increase. Instead of pointing this out, all people do is say Randolph is a blackhole. Yes, Zach Randolph is selfish and he has no defense. However, the bottom line is he's a top 10 powerforward in the NBA. You don't just go trading away players with that kind of talent, unless you're gonna get something good in return. Considering he has such a huge contract, the Knicks aren't gonna get anything good for Zach. That's why I think the Knicks should try and use him for next year, and try and see how he plays with the young guys. Who knows, maybe the Knicks will improve next year, like how the Blazers did, last year with Randolph-something nobody gives Randolph any credit for. Another thing people don't point out is that Randolph leads all frontcourt players on the Knicks in assists and EFF(which shows how the team plays when you're on the court). He leads the team, with an EFF of 19. If he has hurting the team, his EFF would be lower.The fact that his EFF is high means that the team plays better when he's on the court,than when he's off the court. Crawford, for example, averages 20 ppg, but because he is getting too many minutes, at 41 mpg, that's why his EFF is only 15, even though most players with 20 ppg have a higher EFF than him.
