next to Thomas Bryant who google told me was 6'10 but thass a lie

#heightwatch2k17


I'm guessing Thomas Bryant is still growing. But hey, I'm not gonna complain if he gets to be 7 foot He'd be 7 foot with a 7'6 wingspan and a 9'4.5 standing reach and the ability to hit threes and block shots. So it's not a bad thing at all

Cmon. The photo is angled. What's the point of trying to figure out his height from that photo. It's as bad as that Nike group photo where it only shows the torso up.

Hopefully we get a more level full body picture with reference.

Why is Julius working out with Dwade, Thomas Bryant, DLO, and a random older guy when he should be in the gym??

You're just joking about the "random older guy" right?

trainao Do you have your ball on a string? @juliusrandle30 showing off his right here from DEEP. .
As a shooter the best place to hit is inside BACK rim. If you can consistently make shots and hit the back of the rim, the ball should come back to you. Try it out from the free throw line. Shoot til 5 come back. Then try to get 5 in a row. Then make it more challenging.


For some reason a left handed shot always looks smooth to me. I use to love watching Peeler shoot...

I won't be convinced until I know the thickness of Blake's shoes. And don't even get me started on measuring orthopedic inserts and socks.

Isn't it funny how you stop talking about how much weight a player lost, or how much muscle they have, or how tall they are once they actually amount to something? That all seems to not matter any more. I hope that day comes for Randle soon.

1) Based on what we've seen and had reported from coaches and trainers, shooting is better than anything anyone has seen him do before. Randle will shoot better from outside, use both hands at the rim, and be much stronger and more physically fit.

2) Ingram is stronger, better able to finish through contact he creates instead of absorbs (a huge advantage because of his length), has a refined free throw shooting stroke that translates to his outside shot, has a quicker 1st step, and has improved since the impressive summer league game.

3) Rookie pg getting rave reviews in practice, apparently is on track to dramatically elevate teammate's games and the team's pace just like he's done on his summer, college, and high school teams.

4) Rookie fwd is a great shooting, good defending and passing, fast break finishing steal of the draft.

Those 4 athletic bodies, along with an all star center, a sg skilled on both ends, and some nice backup pieces to plug in are going to result in....... wait for it........ 7 more wins this season.

(sound heard on the old KLAC/KMPC Jim Healy radio show: a) extended laughter........followed by b) a moderately slow)....Ok.

I recall Kobe's workout and muscle gain being a hot topic midway thru his career. Same deal with LeBron's diet and weight loss a few seasons ago.

Depends what he shows this year. If he shows that he's too good to come off the bench and the Lakers are able to sign both PG and LeBron, I have a hard time seeing Randle come back unless they want him to start at C (which would obviously mean they let Lopez walk).
