zach_randolph_300Memphis Grizzlies power forward, Zach Randolph, has been named to participate in the 62nd NBA All-Star Game as a member of the Western Conference team. He was appointed the honor by the coaches’ vote for the reserves.

This is Randolph’s second career All-Star selection, as he becomes the first player in Grizzlies history to earn multiple all-star honors. For the third time in the past four years, and the second straight season, Memphis will be sending a representative to the game.

The 31 year old Randolph has battled back from an MCL injury that kept him sidelined for the majority of the 2011-12 season, to recapture all-star form. He leads the league in double-doubles with 27, and is averaging 16.1 points to go along with 11.6 rebounds on the season.

In his first All-Star appearance, Randolph logged 8 points and 6 rebounds in 19 minutes of play.

You can catch Zbo in All-Star Game action on February 17th. The game is set to take place at the Toyota Center in Houston, Texas, and will be broadcast on TNT.

Well deserved, big fella!
