In a story over at the Commercial Appeal, Zach Randolph was asked about the possibility that his scoring slump might be the result of a lingering back injury -- one that caused him to miss a game some two weeks ago.

And in the most Randolph way possible, Zach responded, "I ain't one to complain... If it was (hurting) I couldn't tell you."

Nothing sums up the Randolph mentality more than that one quote right there. Because the truth is, he's never been one to complain. We never hear him lay the blame on an injury or anything, for that matter -- personal or otherwise.

The truth is, though, Randolph is struggling offensively. In fact, he hasn't scored in double figures in three straight games, scoring a grand total of 20 points in those three contests while shooting 26 percent from the floor. Nope, those aren't All-Star numbers.
