Anthony Randolph has been an internet favorite for a long time, but in recent years, the talented big man has fallen almost completely off the map with the exception of true basketball die-hards. On Friday, however, the now 27-year-old Randolph zoomed back into the collective consciousness with one of the more impressive blocked shots that you will see at any level.
As you can see above, Randolph displayed the full ridiculousness of his athleticism, essentially bringing former NBA big man Joey Dorsey to a complete stop in the air . That is no small feat considering that Dorsey was listed at 6-foot-8 and 268 pounds during his NBA career, and Randolph made the block look so easy that it becomes even more mind-boggling.
At one point, Anthony Randolph was supposed to be the next big thing and it seems crazy that he is languishing in Europe (playing with Real Madrid) at an age when he remains in his theoretical prime after washing out of the NBA after the 2013-2014 season. Still, the 6-foot-11 super-athlete is still good for a crazy, highlight-reel play every once in a while, even if it takes place during a 39-point blowout in the EuroLeague.
Isn’t the internet a grand place?
