Imagine the Lakers running a death lineup with LeBron at the 4 and Julius at the small ball 5.

Oh, MJST, I did imagine it for a few days this past July. It would've been glorious more often than not.

ETA: imagine Julius and Lebron at the elbows in all the horns sets the Lakers are going to run over the next four years.


Gawd if we had just forced him to play here (I mean he was freaking restricted, and in a contract year).... Aside from outside shooting, Randle would fix our other weakness.

The idea that Julius wouldn't complement Lebron was silly to me. A more skilled, quicker Tristan Thompson would do just fine next to LBJ.


Without the off court baggage that Tristan brings too.

So far, at least. There are a lot of Kardashians.

If Randle can complement players why are the Pelicans struggling to win games in the preseason? If they get off to a bad start I can see them dangling Randle in December...

Not looking for him to carry a team, we just need a physical presence who can rebound and play small ball 5. He would have fit in with us this season perfectly.

We should never have given into his or Mintz’s demands. Qualifying offer or nothing. He would have come around and played well for us, then made his money next season as a UFA.

Fantasy basketball is a fairly simple game. You select a team and fill out a roster. You succeed or fail based on how well your players perform in certain categories.

If the Lakers have Lebron why are they struggling to win games in the preseason?

I would say the Lakers should be better then 2-3 the Clippers game we had no PG to run a unit with Zo and Rondo out, the Denver games were fairly even but Luke went with his dumb experimental line ups...

If he becomes a legit three point threat, he is going to be impossible to cover.

We've been saying that for years now.

At best, maybe he can be a 30% 3 point shooter but it's never his instinct to shoot. Luckily for the Pels they have Mirotic who will let it fly from 3. I don't think Jules is going to be pressured to shoot jumpers as that is not his bread and butter. He will be a physical presence to protect AD.

Randle didn't even start the last game, and AD finally played well as a result (AD's shot distance chart indicates he prefers to operate within 16', preferably 10').

Before last night's game, AD was shooting 43% from the field, only really dominating vs Alex Len. NO still lost to a Raptors team who sat multiple guys (Kawhi, Lowry, JV, Ibaka, Van Vleet, Green, Wright, Powell), while at full strength themselves. Barely even won the first quarter.

Preseason or not, there are no positive signs for this pairing. Randle will be coming off the bench. I'm sure we can all name players who have extended their range from 17' to three, but extending Julius' range from about 17" to the arc isn't possible.

Pels tested Julius off the bench with Mirotic playing Center...

Randle put up 20/11/4 in 24 mins

If that man actually played center, Alvin Gentry must have a college job lined up.

I think Gentry was just testing it, cause Mirotic was doing his best poor-man's Pau impression in the last game at center with Jules playing the 4. I don't think it's a full time solution, and I think Davis has excelled at the 5 as of late and should/shall remain there.

Otherwise Gentry having a college job coming up soon would be true

Lakers had massive chemistry problems last year and that was just because Randle wasn't starting. It took a locker room meeting plus promoting Randle to the starting lineup to solve that.

I don't even want to think of what it would do to the team, if we had forced him to come back against his will with a qualifying offer.

Not to mention he would be coming off the bench. He didnt want to hear that. And he is coming off the bench anyway.

He's been a beast so far. Hit two 3’s, been a force around the rim, and played good defense on Paul on a switch. I'm getting depressed all over again...

NO's lead ballooned when he checked in, then HOU got back in it once he went to the bench.

'We wanted to get guys who are tough. We wanna play even faster than we did last year.'

Yeah, I can see how he wouldn't have fit with that vision at all...

But I'm happy that he's now with a franchise that actually appreciates him. He's up to 17 points in the first half.
