For the third time in three years,  Zach Randolph has been traded. Two out of those three times, the team got next to nothing in return. But that didn't matter, because every time, the team losing him was better off.

Obviously it was a move that opens a spot for Blake Griffin, but getting rid of Z-Bo is just icing on the cake.

It is really amazing to me that a guy can put up 20 and 10 and still be traded to the Grizzlies for a no production clown like Quentin Richardson. The bottom line is that teams are realizing (not the Grizzlies) that Z-Bo is a black hole and a cancer.

Since the day the Blazers got rid of him, I was very in favor of his departure. You must drop dead weight. Period.
