Missed the game, only checked out the box score. Randle's efficiency continues to leave a lot to be desired.


he did miss a few shots over the top of defenders, DAO. but then he also missed a couple easy uncontested bunnies, too (uncharacteristically). for the 1st 3 quarters he wasnt giving much effort in the game.. IMO due to his conditioning. in the 4th quarter tho , he looked great , shot about 50% in the quarter and made like 4 buckets. had a really good 4th Q offensively. even you, not much of a Randle lover (?) would have been impressed.

what a prospect he is



Yeah i was thinking the same thing.. he needs better conditioning. I think he is kinda fat, got that "man butt" thing in the behind lol....That gotta go, not attractive in a man...


it may not be attractive my friend but its an ASSet, i'll tell ya. seriously, helps on the court. especially for a physical guy in the paint

http://instagram.com/p/c27n1sRK5u/?modal=true he's certainly not fat, tho! hes just a beast with a naturally big rump. like Sr. Charles ; but muscles like Karl Malone


Amen. I dont get the fat comments. He actually looks slimmer than the picture links we put on here. Looks like he shed some bulk off. Notice that his arms are smaller with less definition compared to his IG pictures.

He is far from being fat.

I'm trying to warm up to him. I'm concerned with his lack of a jumper, and I also wonder if he can score efficiently over length. His ball handling and quickness off the dribble is very strong, and I'm very impressed by his court awareness as a passer. He shows promise. But the poor efficiency thus far has to be concerning.

I don't think it's solely a conditioning problem with Randle. He even said as much after the game. Poor conditioning was never really an issue at Kentucky. He always seemed to play with a tremendous motor.

I think the problem is that sometimes he's become disengaged with these SL games. I partially blame the coaching staff and his teammates for not getting him involved more, and more importantly, not putting him in the right spots to succeed. I don't mind him working on his face up game, but I certainly hope that come the regular season, we see Julius playing in the post more. That, to me, is his bread and butter.

Chuck having a big ass was actually really beneficial to his game. It was his rump that enabled him to move other bigs around for rebounds and buckets. His rotund butt compensated for his lack of size. I think Randle can also use his big bum to his advantage.

Ok, I'm done talking about male butts.

i agree on the disinterested part, for sure. i saw the same in Aaron Gordon in his Orlando Summer League games.
a huge part of "motor" is a desire to win and also contribute. the other part is conditioning. none of those aspects lined up for Randle to have a great motor in his games this week.

Basically SL seems to be glorified pick up games. Kinda hard to get any kind of rhythm if you're a big.

With our current roster, I expect Randle's touches will be worse than this in the regular season. Randle was expected to start for us a week ago. Now with boozer, not so much.

Lot of excuses for Randle already being trotted out. He's a lottery pick...he should have dominated summer league.

Kevin Durant even sucked in his summer league man. and none of the #1-6 picks this year DOMINATED. they all had flashes. Randle had more flashes than 3 guys picked ahead of him.

LOL. Yeah, just Tierre Brown and Adam Morrison did one upon a time.

Seriously. He did just fine. All the nba tv announcers were praising him on every broadcast.

conditioning seem to big the biggest thing against Randle right now


fwiw Dante Exum from the game I saw live on Monday looked to have pretty bad conditioning as well.

I wouldn't look too much into it

Things will pick up.

what do you guys think of Antoine Walker as a comparison for Doug Mcbuckets offensive game..?

Shabazz Muhammad - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ApKB66seRO0&list=UU-Ba10Rmz8pFivAVdQNeFyw look at how retro his game is! he's a post-up wing player! we dont see any of those any more. i'm interested to see if he'll be able to make that work in the NBA, wing players rarely get post touches today. its probly the only shot he has at becoming a solid NBA scoring option, tho.

Seriously. There is a long list of superstars that sucked in Summer League. But not nearly as long as the list of absolute scrubs who "dominated" Summer League. Not to mention the fact that none of the other lotto picks exactly tore it up this year, save for McDermott.

Randle played plenty well. He showed a ton of flashes, all of which impressed the hell out of me.

He needs a real jumpshot. Once he has that, then the game gets scary. His set shot limits his offensive versatility on the floor.

Everything is a set shot, or a hard drive to the hoop. Rarely anything inbetween.

Dude needs 2 strides from the 3-point line to the cup.
