Craig Randall behind the scenes footage

The NBL's latest episode of its documentary on kayo has some behind the scenes footage of the Craig Randall saga. Looks like he was a big whinger.

In case you're wondering, the episode is called 'Brisbane and Baynes', despite spending exactly 0 seconds of the episode talking about Brisbane

Looks like Randall went to work from game 1, complaining about CJ "yeling at him" (as though he were meant to whisper instructors from the sideline). Craig Randall has all the physical tools of an NBA player but he hasnt got the temprement to last as a professional basketball player. He'll be in crypto in a year or two.

Where there is smoke there's fire. That's my motto for anyone in life. Jumping to victim status and simultaneously creating a cancerous environment around him. Not normal behaviour.

No dickhead policy.

I was a little surprised this footage was aired.

It's all Randall’s doing, but it paints him in a significantly negative light. Don’t know who his agent is, but perhaps the NBL looked at this and figured it was a bridge they could burn.

On the other hand as Manu alluded to, it signals to others here and abroad that the NBL generally won’t tolerate dickheads and puts pork chops on notice. I like this.

This guy must have been a massive bitch for the league to actively go after him in this fashion no holds barred.

PW, that bit after the timeout where he's roaming around just having a general rant without eye contact or being constructive at all... "that's not fair to me. I know you want me to stay calm, I'm a grown ass man you know that". Super neurotic dude, entitled, selfish.

I actually commented on this forum's game thread against Phoenix Suns. He was hot then turned it over on consecutive possessions doing selfish things, and I said that's why he'll never make the NBA. It was evident well before Round 1. Even in preseason game threads people here commented how he's just jacking like crazy and that he's the third best import.

Just a wanker, glad the league released that.

Adelaide were told of his attitude before signing him..

Weedy Slug, doesn't have much of a bearing on anything. Sixers would have been stupid if they persisted with him, but they didn't. They gave him a go and said nah he's too much of a pain in the ass, piss off.

How much money did they pay him in the end, any idea?

Adelaide took a chance on him as he was cheap given his attitude which is why he didn't get an nba call up last season

They certainly did!

It wouldn't have been much as he was released after six games just before his contract would've become guaranteed for the rest of the season.

Randall is an absolute flog of the first degree. I can't understand why they even recruited him, because they were warned about him. Could you imagine Randall talking like that to any other coach and then last another six games.
Junior and the club were totally out of their depth with this player. They may not care too much about his agent, but this is just another scenario of where the Adelaide dirty tricksters are just a poorly run organisation. Decent agents would advise players to keep well clear.

He was literally a team chemistry killer. I can't believe they put up with his antics for as long as they did.
