A thoroughly modern big man boasting athleticism, ballhandling skills and unlimited shooting range, Anthony Randolph has been one of the most unstoppable Turkish Airlines EuroLeague players over the second half of the decade. He debuted in the competition with Lokomotiv Kuban Krasnodar in the 2015-16 season, helping his team reach the Final Four by scoring 28 points in Game 4 of the playoffs against FC Barcelona. He then pulled down 8 offensive rebounds – a Final Four record – in a semifinal loss to CSKA Moscow.

Randolph was named to the 2015-16 All-EuroLeague Second Team, averaging 14.5 points and 6.0 rebounds for Lokomotiv, but has played the rest of the decade with Real Madrid. He has now been to the Final Four in each of his four full EuroLeague seasons, and reached the pinnacle in 2018, when he returned from missing 15 games due to injury early in the season to help Real lift its 10th continental trophy.

OUTSTANDING ACHIEVEMENTS

  • EuroLeague Champion 2018
  • All-EuroLeague Second Team, 2015-16
  • Final Four record, most offensive rebounds (8), 2016

Despite those missing games, in the time since he entered the EuroLeague midway through the decade, Randolph has scored more points, 1,395, than all but eight other players, and only one of those eight has more rebounds than his 577. In the prime of his career at age 30, Randolph is in the right place to keep making an impact and trying to add to his busy list of accolades.
