Shavlik Randolph’s Real Reason For Joining the Heat

While most players joined the Heat in order to chase a championship, Shavlik Randolph may be chasing a more elusive goal: meeting Justin Timberlake.  Here’s what happened in 2007:

76ers forward Shavlik Randolph was in D.C. for the game against the Wizards, so he left behind a No. 42 jersey, autographed: “Justin - I am a big fan - Shavlik Randolph 42.” An aide gave it to Timberlake. Randolph, who’s 23, says his uncle took him to his first show when he was a Duke freshman: “This summer, I got to know some people in the music industry who work with him, and they’ve tried to get us to hang out a few times, but so far our schedules haven’t permitted.”

Shavlik’s been pretty busy, too, so it’s understandable that he and JT haven’t met up yet. But I bet that Shavlik Randolph 76ers jersey has a place of honor in Timberlake’s house, right next to his game-worn Trajan Langdon Duke shorts and JT’s autographed Greg Paulus Syracuse jersey.
