Lamar Odom: Anthony Randolph Should Aim for HoF

"It’s like looking in the mirror a little," Odom said of Randolph. "He’s also 6-11 (actually, they’re both listed at 6-foot-10), he’s left-handed and he can put the ball on the floor. He’s two times as athletic as I was at that age.

"He should set his goals high. He has All-Star potential, Hall of Fame potential, with that size, his ability to put the ball on the floor, he can shoot the three, he can pass. If he stays focused, the sky is the limit for him."

Randolph played Odom pretty physically during the night, even going for a brief ride on Odom’s back while vying for a rebound midway through the third quarter. Randolph said playing against Odom gave himself a peak into the future "to see what I can do once I get more experienced in the game."
