    Julius Randle = Young Larry Johnson

    All you fans old enough can you see the similarities? Randle may even be more athletic. Doesnt much look like a ZBO at all. Sorry if there is a thread about this, I just wanna talk about this kids game, Im excited about the future.

    Grandmama? I don't know. That's high praise to give a guy that hasn't played against the real competition yet.

    I would be pretty happy though if the comparison came true.

    As well, I've alway been pretty good at identifying talent. Julius has something special.

    We would be fortunate to have a replica of Grand mama

    He looks good, but he also looks a lil wild especially if he's gonna try to be a point guard like he was trying to do last night. Either way, hes the one and only bright spot of the offseason

    Yes it is, and you know it's summer league, I'm sure you got bored quickly when you are a top pick

    He may be a hybrid between Gran MaMa and ZBO .. But this kid has gotta lots of ZBO in him… That is very obvious…

    Watched some youtube highlights… This Kid is ZBO.. with a better personality, all the way… No way he's LJ/Grandmama except for his Dunking skills… I think LJ was about about 6 ft 5in.. Zbo and Randle are about the same size and Randle is a bit more athletic but otherwise its similar…

    Could've had exum, but i digress. Have to wait and see when he's up against real pros. So far it's been rather impressive. does seem more LJ than zbo but i'd rather wait and see after a year or so.

    few issues with bringing the ball up. posting up near three point line. not rolling to basket on picks. also, it seemed like a few attitude issues. didn't see a single time he helped a team-mate up. i think it was clarkson that went to the basket and landed on the floor. randle was the closest moving towards the kid but turned around and went the other way. Some other kid came from like the three point line to help clarkson up. I don't know, maybe once he's around kobe, he will put him in his place.

    I think Randle will be special but he needs to work on a few things.

    1. Cannot go right to save his life.
    2. Defensive rotation was horrible. I get he hadn't been practicing but he was responsible for a quite a few easy lay ups.
    3. He seems to make his mind up on passing or shooting way before the defense rotates. He just forces the issue sometimes.
    4. He looked a bit overweight and winded. I get that it's still early but if you want to "prove the other teams wrong," that's where it starts.

    One thing I have to say is that even with those faults he is going to be special. He just needs the right guidance.

    Well,I hope he turns more in a C-Webb kind of player...that is,imo,his best case scenario.

    He has to improve a lot of things yet,but he looks good.
