At the end of last season when Doc finally gave into the Free Shav movement for the final 10 games, Shavlik Randolph grabbed every rebound in sight. The late season acquisition showed significant ability to rebound the basketball, grabbing 26.3% of all available defensive rebounds and 22.4% of all caroms overall. Those were the best numbers on the team, but mind you it was in small sample size of 198 minutes.
Shav was a good locker room guy, who worked hard and took
advantage of the small opportunities that were given to him.
He hustled whenever he was on the court, I'm really surprised Tommy didn't start an 'I Love Shav!' catch phrase and compare his rebounding ability to the Chief or something.Unfortunately though in the playoffs he only played 3 minutes in one
game (he did grab 3 rebounds!!). I think the way he worked his ass off
he deserves a spot on this roster next year, but the C’s currently have
16 signed players on the roster committing to roughly $73.6 million
