I thought the 7 first half minutes was ridiculous. In the second half is it just me or did it look like he tweaked his leg or knee? Or possibly his leg sleeve bothering him, but he reached down and touched that left upper leg or knee area several times.

Randle only playing 21 minutes is a travesty and the only reason he even got that is because Nance crapped the bed at the end of the game.


Didja see the two sequences that led Luke to taking Julius out? (I really think it was just to give him a blow).


He played 22 mins. Doubt it.



Code:
3rd Quarter

4:30   Julius Randle enters the game for Brandon Ingram


Is it really that hard to understand?

Really interested to see what the team does and what Julius does with FA.

Julius has proven to be a true warrior. He should get more playing time at small ball center and we should pick up the pace.
His perimeter defense is light years ahead of last year and much better than Lopez defensively on the perimeter too.
I hope the FO finds a way to keep him on the team long term.

They should start
Lonzo
KCP
Ingram
Kuzma
Randle

Why not start your best lineup? The current system clearly is not working.

I have to admit, I wasn't crazy about Julius' attitude to start the season, but he has proven himself over and over again, and he needs to either start over Lopez or Lopez needs to get the hook after 5 minutes max in the first, so Julius can take most of the minutes. I'm getting tired of seeing him come in after we're down by 10+ points.

Hope Randle doesnít get turned off by this Ďstep childí treatment when it comes to minutes. Iím not sure why he got the shortest leash, heís been playing under control

I don't understand Luke. D'Angelo was last year's whipping boy and now it's Julius. He should be starting by now.

I think the Lakers will retain him. Its just a loop hole for LA to not lock up any guarenteed money ahead of next summer.

They will try to land PG or other big name players first, and then extend JR cause heís still on his rookie deal in 2018/2019.

Unless theres a sign n trade to get the marquee player or some package on the table for JR, then its adios.

The only explanation is a top-down order to audition Brook for potential trades. But it's coming at the expense of winning games.

Do you guys really think Julius can start at C?

I mean, he's clearly too much to handle for backup bigs but Im not sure he can guard starting C's and still be a major factor on O for the duration of starter type mins.

and that is going to be a huge mistake when we're trying to get our 2 max free agents. Once again we are on pace to win less than 30 games. Why the (bleep) would any max FA sign with a 28 win team?

Luke needs to go. Randle and Kuzma are our best players along with Ingram. All three should be starting. It's absolutely ridiculous the way Luke is handling Julius this season.

I donít understand. There are enough stats that show the team gets better with him on the floor, enough videos that show the team gets better with hm on the floor, a player outright saying the team gets better with him on the floor, yet his minutes are so low. He does a better version of a player, a player that becomes more valuable to the teamís progression get significantly less minutes?

I do if Brook keeps playing like he is. I think you still start Brook against the Sixers and the Pelicans. But against most other teams Randle I think gives us better production. Especially since Brook's 3 is not falling.

Biggest shocker of the season so far for me has been Randle's improvement on the defensive end. Wow, I love it!

Is it reasonable to give the benefit of the doubt to Walton here and assume that management has asked Walton to drive Randleís minutes down in an effort to drive down his summer asking price?

Nope because he will be paid by someone. It may not be the max, but it'll be more than what the Lakers would want to pay him.

Is Randle's caphold 12m just for one season, or through the life of his new contract if we do resign him? Because then what do we care how much someone offers him if 12m counted against the cap every season.

Jules is best at C and we got an Allstar C in the offseason so Jules lost his starting job.

Honestly what ever Luke has been doing he needs to keep it up. I never thought I would see Jules play D like he does now. Something must be working.
