Better dancer: Shav Randolph or Gino?

Shavlik Randolph is unlikely to see the court outside of garbage time,  but that doesn’t mean we can’t take some time to get to know the man.

In an interview with CSNNE’s Jess Camerato, Randolph spoke about his extensive dance background and renown Michael Jackson impersonation:

“I love playing the piano,” Randolph enthusiastically told “I love playing the piano and I do a mean Michael Jackson impression dancing.”

As for his King of Pop impersonations, Randolph learned to dance when his parents enrolled him in classes as a child.

“Man, I feel kind of embarrassed,” he laughed. “I took ballroom, took ballet, took hip hop and jazz.”

Looking back, his moves on the dance floor helped him with footwork on the basketball court. He still likes to show off his fancy feet years later.

“(I like) anything Michael Jackson,” Randolph said. “To me, he’s the greatest of all time. That’s something not a lot of people know about me.”

As it turns out, Randolph’s dancing skills are not a hidden talent. He showed off his MJ impersonation at a CBA FanFest (scroll ahead to 2:15 mark):

Got me thinking… How does Shav compare to the greatest dancer in Garden history, Gino?

    HAHAHA saw this earlier and thought about posting it in the comments on here…glad to see you guys found it too.

    I thought it was kinda silly when the writer of that article made it sound like he was the only musician on the team, though.

    Lets not forget about Bass!

      Bass isn’t a musician he’s a rapper please don’t confuse the two.

      • eddysamson

        Bass’s skill aside- tell that to the underground MCs of the world. Good luck.

        • LA Flake

          I just hope he rebounds better than Bass. It’d be kinda impossible not to.

          Oh yeah…That white boy can dance! Go, white boy! Go, white boy!

          • eddysamson

            Bass is cursed with butter-hands. I’m not sure what he can do about it…is there some way to train to improve upon that? I mean you can train better positioning and overall rebounding skills, but his entire problem in every aspect of his offense game is his damned butter hands!

        • Raoul

          F#%* the underground MC’s of the world. They’re underground for a reason, no one wants to hear them.

          • eddysamson

            You* dont want to hear them because you have this horrible thing the human race is cursed with called a closed-mind.

    Hey eddysamson, can you please never post any crap like that again on this sight. That’s 15 seconds I’ll never get back.

    • eddysamson

      Well excuse me, Mr. Closed Minded asshole. I’ve only been around here a few months and even I know the people that run this site (or at least John) are big hip hop heads so maybe you should show some respect. This is BASKETBALL after. You know…that sport thats grown up hand in hand with hip hop…get real

      • Carrot bottom

        Go to a hip hop blog and post that crap there. You stem

        • eddysamson

          Or I could just not give any kind of a shit about your shitty opinion and keep on doing my thing.

    • WillowGreen

      what an asshole,

    • Everyone here just cut this shit out right now. Talk about the post or stop talking.

      And for what it’s worth… I like that song… but let’s not get into the habit of posting a ton of music in the comments either.
