Julius doesn't even get hyped for his own dunks.

Popovich said about Julius what we should all take into account. He said Julius was the rare kind of player that was over themselves and very coachable.

I've never seen Julius really hyped up about anything spectacular. He got hyped when Metta had a great final game for the Lakers and he was animated when he was telling Chandler but he pretty much has always seemed like a guy who doesn't get too high or low and always has a pissed disposition.

Him standing with his teammates and clapping during Nance's dunk is him reacting how he always reacts. Now if Randle was Robert Sacre'ing for everyone else but just was muted when Nance did something then I'd be worried. But I think it was just Jules being Jules.


This.

He's never really animated

Yeah I mean he posterized Embiid and completely no-sold it. Randle seems just the no nonsense kind if personality. It reflects in his off the court activities too and mentality. Just not the animated type.

Maybe if we won a championship but he's more quiet confidence no nonsense type. That's actually probably why Popovich liked him so much.

I could see Popovich maximizing Randle's abilities as a Spur.

For me, the biggest improvement in Randle's game this year has been his defense. I really wish the team would play him at center more, because that is likely his best role going forward.

He seemed to be more animated in previous years. I remember him yelling, "You can't guard me!" to Draymond early in his career.

He's been way more consistent this year than some of you are giving him credit for being.

Only a select few Lakers fans instead of embracing the just turned year old that just put up 23/15/2 hit clutch shots and defense in the Overtime that helped lead the Lakers to a victory would then be screaming for him to be traded.

Some of ya'll need to get over this "two max" plan and actually realize when you have talent the level of Jules on the team instead of trading them cause you're SCARED to pay them.

THAT was the point of drafting them, that they would play at this kind of level so that they'd be worthy of paying.

Jules has done everything thus far to accomplish that.

Instead of trying to ship him out, how about embracing him and actually being grateful that we drafted him instead of Noah Vonleh.

You're asking people to move on from the plan our FO has for us. You know how dumb that sounds?

And I'm one of the biggest fans of Randle here. I don't want him traded.

Hasn't the front office even backed off of the two max plan? I could have sworn Magic said something about possibly going after only one Max player this off season and seeing how things play out from there.

He's trying to lower expectations but JC, Randle, and even Nance are all in trade rumors. You trade JC, you have space for two max contracts. Coincidence?

Haha. I'm a caveman on this iPad.

Also I'm not hating on Randle it's just frustrating. If someone would ask me to discribe his career thus far I'd show them the stat line from the last three games.

I think we all love us some Julius, but these are the kind of tough decisions a team has to make with so many young players. It's difficult for me to see him as our PF of the future given his lack of shooting, shot creation, and low bball IQ. Kuzma only made the decision that much easier. I'd love him coming off the bench but I doubt he would accept that role long term, hence why I feel we should sell high.
