Zach Randolph's story - ties to street gangs, connections to murders & shootings, illegal gun possession, drug distribution, lawsuits, arrests... Z-Bo's life has been filled w/ obstacles - mostly surrounded around the Hoops Family mob & his brother Roger Randolph.
Documenting on Z-Bo's life, from his childhood to NBA career. Zach was corrupted by the negative influences of his brother, his environment (the hard streets of Marion, Indiana where he grew up), teammates, and most of all his gangster friends in the Hoops Family. One member was the shooter in a murder outside of a nightclub. Zach's own brother also was involved in a club shooting when he opened fire into a crowd and shot 3 men. Zach was there and attempted to restrain his brother during the incident, however, lied to the police about any knowledge afterwards. As a young kid, Zach was arrested for having stolen assault rifles in his possession. In the early days of his NBA career, there were guns found in his home again. He was also accused of sexually assaulting a stripper. He struggled with arrests, convictions, lawsuits, & gang affiliation to name a few. This all almost prevented him from becoming the man & basketball player he is today. Not until being traded to the Memphis Grizzlies did he finally start to turn his life around for good.
The Sacramento Kings have just signed Z-Bo this offseason.
