I already touched on Zach Randolph's pooptastic game against the Raptor's in Worst of the Weekend, but this thrilling video -- provided by Basketbawful reader Charles -- is the dollop of creamy turd pudding on top of the crap cake that Z-Bo served up last night:


Worst. Possession. Ever. Let me recap it for you:

1. Randolph, a (nearly) seven-footer, receives the ball outside of the three-point line.

2. He attempts to break down his defender by dribbling the hell out of the ball, sort of like Isiah Thomas circa 1989, only without the mad handles.

3. He totally loses the rock like somebody abusing the freestyle control on NBA Live and has to run almost out to halfcourt to retrieve it.

4. Then, instead of passing the ball to a teammate, he runs it to the arc and launches an airball...with 7 seconds left on the shot clock! (Thanks, herman).

The best part is when the camera pans to Isiah, who looks about ready to choke a bitch.

Hahaha perfect... let me be the first to say it was even worse seeing it live... the way that play just came out of nowhere grinding against any and all rhythm that the game had... hahah wow.

but hey, He got a single block last week... I have him on my fantasy squad...(s) double ouch... when he gets a block I feel the need to celebrate.

I think it should also be noted that there was 8 seconds left on the shot clock.

Just to add to the awesomeness that is Z-Bo.

And to think that Starbury was so excited at the beginning of the season... (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rYY338_JgvI)

There should be a Walton comparison of Z-Bo to 'Toine Walker. "That was the most...AMAZING display of confidence in a big man. It was reminiscent of Antoine Walker--I played with Walker with the great Celtics team, and I can assure you that he had the best hoist-and-air-ball you've EVER seen!"

This reminds me of a something you'd see at the end of a long day of pick-up basketball down at the park.

You know...it's like the 12th game of the afternoon, guys are sort of getting lazy and playing shadow defense...and your big man somehow gets ahold of the ball out front and for an instant thinks he's the sickest ballhandler ever.

It was at this point I used to just walk off the court to go home. I wonder how many Knicks feel like doing that each night.

That is the essence of basketbawfulness. Looks like what would happen if I tried to play, except I wouldn't be asking for ten million.

Does Zeke even write up plays anymore, or does he just throw the players out on the floor and see what happens?

This was bad. REAL BAD. I mean I've been a Blazers fan since I was a baby and I never saw Zbo do anything like this when he was in Portland. This really demonstrates that the Knicks really have no control over the players.

P.S. It looks like my favorite Blazer Darius Miles has been editing his Wikipedia article in his down time.

Here's a quote:
"According to sportsline.com/nba/injuries, Darius will be out until at least late February."

According to this article Mr. Boykins attended "EARL THE SQUIRELL" for his college career.

Someone needs to take a screencap of this video and add it to the Basketbawful banner.

Hahaha, this reminds me of a clip I recorded a couple of months ago on NBA Live 2005, where Randolph fired an airball up from 15 feet OVER THE BACKBOARD. And this is NBA Live 2005, where usually nobody will airball from in front of forty feet.

Somewhere, a Portland GM is singing.

Stuff like this is why watching the Knicks play is comedy on par with Def Comedy Jam, only the Knicks provide more consistent laughs.

That... is.... awful.

Just came across this on RealGM. I think it ties in well with this video.

For the record, Z-bo is nowhere near 7'. He's 6'9'' in his tallest shoes . . . I think that makes this clip even more disturbing.

speaking of pooptastic, this is how Zebo used to get down in Ptown

LOL. Glad Pritchard worked his magic...
