My Bad, Jerome Randle

[Jerome Randle, meet Omar Samhan. He’s now going to box you out.]

Thinking about summer league, and I have more posts to come regarding, but if there’s a regret I’ve paid for, it’s not talking to Jerome Randle. He’s fun to watch. He’s nice (in a basketball handles sense). He’s 5’9.25″ without shoes.

And I honestly believe he’ll be in the NBA someday (he was also the 2010 Pac-10 POY, BTW). Out of him I saw flashes of a jumper, aggressive defense, and the ability to lead a team. If he improves in each of those areas, especially the jump shot, my belief will come true.

In lieu of all that, I present some pictures of Jerome Randle, performing sweetness.

Here Jerome sees something. I’m not sure what he sees between Omar Samhan and Jeremy Lin, but I’m pretty sure dude sees something. He played a bunch with a band-aid over his right eye. And going by the book, that helps. {Meanwhile, Sun Yue is way off to the left. Trust me.}

{Also, BTW, Hamady N’diaye is right there, but Jerome already knows it’s probably not a good idea to pass it to him on offense.}

OMG LOL! IT’S J.P. PRINCE Kevin Palmer entering stage right! And Jerome with the old 34-7 split.

{See, told you Sun Yue was to the far left.}

Here’s where the story turns for the worse.

Yes, J.P. Prince Kevin Palmer, not the cousin of Tayshaun, ended up screwing up the assist. Condolences.

This a completely different Jerome Randle pass, but fun nonetheless. {Note the face.}

The Runner.

And now the treat, a very good Jerome Randle mixtape via YouTube:

    What’s up with this strange obsession over Omar samhan? He’s got a decent low post game but you need a lot more than that in the NBA. Let’s move on.

    I liked this article on Randle. Dude was solid even with his spotty minutes. He can crate his own shot, get to the basket, shoot the 3. What I liked about him the most was his tempo, he’s lightning quick but seems to always be in control. He has a good shot at making this roster

  • No big obsession with Samhan …I just liked the picture of him and Randle looking at each other with bewilderment as they lined up next to each other for a free-throw.

    Yeah that Samhan-Randle shot is reminiscent of the Tim Duncan – Earl Boykins picture. Randle is a good player and I believe he will have a shot in this league, all he needs is a chance.

    Randle must be from Uptown with all that handle. you can’t tell me slim ain’t from DC.

  • Rob

    Chi stand up! Jerome Randle repping ya’ll well. And I’m from NYC

  • John

    Dude is cash he shot 46 percent from 3 his junior year and with his insane handles and distributing abilities he has a good chance
