Default Re: Better scorer in their prime Rasheed Wallace or Zach Randolph?

First of all, people need to realize that Zach and Sheed played differently in their 20s compared to late 20s and 30s. Zach was a black hole when it came to offense, but that does not show in todays game, because he plays with a great team. Rasheed used to play SF, he was very mobil and a match up nightmare because of his length, long arms, mobility and versatility on both offense and defense. Zach on the other hand, was one of the most hated, if not the most hated player on ISH, he was todays Rudy Gay if you remove the clutch shots and playoff experience. He was actually most known for this move, and basically sums down ISH view on Zach Randolph before his Memphis days

Now suddenly people are ranking Zach as a great player while downgrading Rasheed because the way he played the last 5 seasons.

With that said, Rasheed post game was good, but he took too many shoots, and that makes it hard to review his real post game with confidence. Zach on the other hand is a tough and rough player who is playing as a veteran. Its fun to watch and I would pick Zach over Rasheed any day of the week, as long as we are talking Memphis and not his prime time as a Knick.
