In Randolph’s 17-year career in the NBA, he was most known for his top-dog role on the Memphis Grizzlies and making them relevant. With Randolph’s size and his strength, he was able to embrace the “Grit n’ Grind” mantra for the Grizzlies, being a traditional old school NBA bully.
Before Randolph went to Memphis, he already built himself a bad reputation. He was part of the notorious Portland Trailblazers team, known as the “Jail Blazers.”
The team became popular because of the character issues and bad antics of their players. Randolph was a young player at the time, but he was also one of the players who tainted the image of the team.
