What's up. I caught the press conference, and it was pretty boring. It seems as if none of the guys, including Randolph, have had much of a chance to speak to Isiah Thomas. I find that a little unsettling, but whatever. Zeke, in his extremely uncomfortable speaking tone, introduced Dickau as a hard worker, Jones as a defensive diamond in the rough, and Randolph as a grown man who deserves a fresh start. Dickau and Jones both sounded a little shocked and homesick, but were introduced in such a way that I expect them to be on the roster this season. For his part, Z-Bo said all the right things. Mike Dougherty has the full quotations from Randolph:
