Anthony Randolph Could Start for Knicks

by August 28, 2010

Regardless of his position, Randolph should get solid minutes for NY. From the NY Post: “The 6-foot-10 Randolph could play small forward, the 6-foot-10 Gallinari at shooting guard and Amar’e Stoudemire at power forward. If Randolph is as good as the Knicks think, Gallinari will have to play shooting guard to keep the ex-Warrior as a starter. The Knicks do not have a legit starting shooting guard, especially with Kelenna Azubuike unlikely to be 100 percent when training camp begins Sept. 25 as he recovers from knee patella surgery. Randolph’s addition in the David Lee sign-and-trade could turn into the summer’s real steal. His progress was stunted by multiple ankle injuries (torn ligament, fracture) last season and coach Don Nelson’s erratic use of him. ‘I think the fans don’t know [how good I could be],’ Randolph said. ‘It works to my advantage. When they see me play, it will be, ‘Wow.’ Expectations are low. It works in my favor. I’ve improved every year and was having a good season before I got hurt.'”
