Video: Zach Randolph Ejected for Punching Ponytailed Player on Suns

Alternate title to the post: frustrations of surrendering 81 points in the first half are manifested through Zach Randolph’s fist. Yes, the Clippers got destroyed on Tuesday night by the new-look Suns who shot 62% from the field in their first game without the recently fired Terry Porter. The ejection for Randolph actually came in the 1st quarter when he threw a left hook at that Phoenix Mercury player who wears his hair in a bun, aka Louis Amundson. Just taking one look at Amundson is enough reason to deck him, so I totally understand Randolph’s position here. I’m guessing the league won’t.

I didn’t even have to see it to realize how severe the punch was; I was listening to the game in my car and Clippers’ radio announcer Brian Sieman was all over the thing, quick to proclaim that Randolph would for sure be out of the lineup their next game after that act. I have no doubt that will be the case.

    Pretty sad when a guy has to do something like that because he wants out of a game or future games. I guess it’s just a reflection of the league as a whole where certain teams will never win…reminds me of baseball.

    don’t mess with Louis Amundson! future NBA starter! zach randolph is a cheapshot artist!

    Larry Brown, you have no respect. Amundson gives it his all every night and is a better player than that complete prick, aka Randolph. He let out his anger on Amundson when he did nothing wrong, he was just pissed that his team lost by 40! I will never see Randolph the same again after that act of cheapness and brutality.

    Tell her him to cut the hair and then maybe I’ll change my opinion
