On and off the court in Memphis, many see Grizz big man Zach Randolph as having become the man and that was before there was an official proclamation to help make the case.
On Friday, Mayor A C Wharton Jr. made it official, issuing a proclamation declaring Zach Randolph Day. It was in recognition of Z-bo's "achievements and charitable events in the Memphis Community."
Zach racked another double-double – flashing his trademark smile and signing autographs rather than scoring in the paint and hauling down rebounds. All the while, there were various fundraising activities benefiting Le Bonheur Children's Hospital.
The day's events unfolded at the Walmart Neighborhood Market at 2856 Hickory Hill Ext., with the store's manager, Marty Gil, on hand, along with a representative from Le Bonheur.
As they awaited his arrival, some in the crowd shouted "Z-Bo 50! ZBow 50!"
No. 50 did not disappoint!
