Luke Walton on Julius Randle: "I think his willingness to continue to try to grow as a player is really impressive because he's so dominant physically & he has had so much success recently." #Lakers

Luke Walton on Julius Randle: "I feel like if he wanted to, he could just put his head down & get to the rim and score 30 points a night, but we're asking more of him as far as we want him being a playmaker." #Lakers





For those that don't get it.


If Kuzma is out as well, I'm down to see Randle put his head down and get 30 because theres no point in play making for players like Tyler Ennis


How many times did we see this sentence from 2005-2007 >_> just replace Tyler Ennis's name with a select few others

10-10 from the free throw line tonight and a 20/10/2 game.

That's a "bad" performance I guess.

Randle, Hart and Zubac are the only ones that brought it tonight.

He bounced back strong in the 2nd half for sure.


Basic stats like points and rebounds aren't very telling of his game and they neve have been. Whether he plays very well or very poorly, he still ends up with a similar stat line. From watching the game last night, I can tell that his 20-10 was not a helpful contribution. Other games, he is the difference maker with the same 20-10 stat line.


Fair enough but my point is that thatís how it goes with the better players in the league, which is where Julius seems to be right now.

Take for example Kobe. He could have a good night or a bad night and put up a 27 and 6 stat line. His bad nights you might seem him jack close to 30 shots to get there or have a ton of turnovers. With JR, his bad nights might involve high TOs and/or poor defense, but he will still get you the roughly 20/10.

I don't think many people would say he had a good game vs the Wolves, but what I am saying is that it is a good thing when last night is what a bad game looks like.

They fact they're asking Julius to be a point forward or main facilitator these last few games kind of feels like they know they aren't bringing Lonzo back this season.

Otherwise why ask it?


the level of reach on this post lmfaoooo

"They're asking their power forward to work on playmaking so they're probably not bringing back their starting point guard next season"


This season, not next season.

Replace 30 with 50 and you're spot on.

Julius Randle thank you for a great season. It was fun to watch you grow into the player I always knew you could be. Keep working hard and be the steel that all the other players can sharpen themselves on. Take you conditioning and body to an all new level after a vacation with the family. Work on the right hand and the jump shot, especially the 15-18 footer which will always be open for you.

Whatever you do don't leave the Lakers. If you have to hold Magic by is feet off a tall building to get a contract do that. You are already a star but we are still only scratching the surface of your greatness. Thanks again and go with God and have a great off season.

Props to Julius for playing in all 82 games. Great season for him. His off season conditioning really helped. Hopefully this summer he can work on his mid range game. Keep up the good work Julius.

I think only way we absolutely donít bring him back is if we sign PG and LeBron and we are looking for a 3rd superstar like Kawhi and the Spurs ask for Randle in a S&T cause Pop has said positive things about Randle dating back to the USA Basketball training so heís gonna want him in any KL trade... so the chances of Randle coming back is high unless some crazy possibility comes up like trading for Kawhi

listening to GT's podcast....and Darius said he would have "no walk away price" for Randle....as in he would match a full max offer if another team offered. I find Darius very intelligent on basketball, Lakers and other things.....and often agree with him.....but dang, there is no world where I exhaust a max contract on Randle that would average nearly $28 Million per year.

I highly doubt he will get that kind of offer.

He has raised his value, but I would be shocked if he gets anything more than 16-18m. Look at the possible suitors/cap space/positional needs.

I walk away @ $15ish Million.....maybe near $16 Million. If he never becomes an average shooter, he has little chance of outplaying that amount.

Depends. If we have 2 max FAs, at 15m, no brainer.

In a world where we have 0 max FAs, negotiating with him in such a vacuum, different IMO.

Love Randle but eFG% doesn't account for turnovers. That was his biggest weakness in the clutch (and in general, IMO) offensively. Really hope he can improve his handle and awareness in tight spaces going forward.

I'm not going to take the time to look it up on all players but here's Randles clutch minutes (game +/- 5 points in final 5 minutes of overtime or 4th) per 82games.com: 26.3 points/48, 54.5% fg, 55.7% eFG

Thatíd be foolish. He already outplayed that amount this season.

I listened to his interview on Marcellus and Kelvin and Julius said he was excited about the free agency stuff. They asked him about recruiting other players and whatnot and he said he had to worry about himself first. I'm happy for him and I hope he takes the highest amount he can get since he deserves it.
