    Hypothetically, Let's Say Memphis Wins It All This Season...

    Does Zach Randolph deserve some Hall of Fame chatter?

    He's always been a great scorer and a huge rebounder, but was always overlooked because of the lack of winning and bad attitude. But he's become a force in this league and a leader on Memphis, and I believe with a ring as arguably the best player on his team... He would deserve, at the very least, some talk as a Hall of Fame player.

    Andrew Luck, Robert Griffin III, and Colin Kaepernick walk into a bar... To watch Russell Wilson win the Super Bowl.

    No. That's such a well-balanced team that I don't think anyone is going to get carried away with him as an individual winning a ring...unless he just goes bananas in the playoffs.

    He's a 1 time all star. His most prestigous award is a MIP in his third year in the league. He's never been in the top 10 in any stat besides rebound-related ones, and those aren't too plentiful.

    He has the 68th best career PER. He's well outside the active top 50 in WS/48 and plain old win shares (despite being a 15 year vet).

    17.3-9.2 is nice...but I think people know how to dig deeper than that.


    A Finals MVP might give him a boost, but even with that I doubt it. Just too unremarkable of a career IMO. Solid, but rarely ever elite. How can a guy who was arguably (probably) never a top 10 player wind up in the HOF?

    True, but it makes his career resume look a whole lot better.

    IF they somehow magically won it all this year, and he continues to stay healthy over the last few years of his prime and plays well, possibly.

    I think he's had an unremarkable career for the reasons I stated in the original post, though. The guy has always put up really solid numbers throughout his career, but he had a bad attitude and could never lead Portland or New York as "the guy". Now he's become a leader of Memphis and their go-to guy late in game (most of the time), and so now people are finally starting to recognize him.

    I'm probably in the very small minority here, but I think he's been a really solid player throughout his career who's only gotten better over the years... I think a few more years of production and a ring would make people give him a much harder second look.
