King of Kings: Player of the Week


COMING off their best weekend in the Andrew Gaze era, Sydney Kings have grabbed a further accolade, claiming the Player of the Week in the process.

It’s rare for a player who only averaged 15.5ppg, 2.5rpg and 4.5 apg over two memorable wins, to collect our weekly B.O.T.I. individual award.

Those aren’t startling numbers by any means and are more reflective of the “glue guys”, not the stars.

Jerome Randle is a star. His league MVP award last season proves that.

But as Sydney broke its decade-long hoodoo in Perth by seven, then came home and quadrupled that margin to humble the defending champs by 28 at the Kingdome, Randle was the glue guy.

He was a leader and his defensive work on Bryce Cotton also was substantial.

Bear in mind, among the raft of records you can read about here, the Kings also held Perth to 21 second-half points yesterday, the lowest in the club’s 36-year history.

And Sydney only turned the ball over four times, the lowest of any team this year.

So despite Demitrius Conger going for a career-high 31 points for Illawarra, Shannon Shorter and Nathan Sobey showing some form at Adelaide, and Cam Gliddon starring for Cairns, the round belonged to Sydney.

And by extension, to Jerome.
