What’s your impressions of Julius Randle? Draymond Green: From the first time I saw him play, I just loved the intensity that he played with, the fire, the dog, the passion and fire that he played the game with. You see a young guy like that, coming into the league at 19 years old, No. 1 you respect it. But you want to do what you can to help him be successful. At the end of the day, we are competitors. We’ll play against each other four times a year and possibly in the playoffs. But it’s not about that.
Draymond Green: It was funny. I used to always tell Luke [Walton], ‘Man if somebody teaches him how to play the game, he’s going to be special.’ You see the passes he makes and how he sees the floor. It’s God-given. I’ve watched him over the course of the last 2 ½ years, you continue to see his game grow and grow. He’s starting to figure out the NBA game. He’s continued to work on his game and figure stuff out. If he continues to do that like I know he will, I think he can be special.”
With Randle leading his sophomore class last season in double doubles (34), Walton wondered aloud how Randle will rely on his jump shot without diluting his skills as a bruising playmaker. Instead, Walton hoped Randle can effectively use his refined skill to make his playmaking abilities even more unstoppable. “He’s put a ton of time into his jump shot and making a lot more of them, but it’s a fine line obviously,” Walton said. “He’s so good at getting to the rim and pushing the ball in transition. He has such strength and quickness. But you still want to use that to your advantage in being able to rely on the fact you can knock down jump shots.”
Lakers forward Julius Randle made one significant step to get ready for next week’s training camp. The Lakers reported that the third-year forward had all seven stitches removed from his right hand on Tuesday. He received that treatment after suffering a cut on the webbing between his middle and ring fingers in the last week of August during an off-season workout. The Lakers cleared Randle for shooting drills shortly after since the injury happened to his non-dominant hand.
Storyline: Julius Randle Injury
The Lakers will spend the next year just two blocks away at the Toyota Sports Center, their home since February 2000, before moving into the state-of-the-art complex in El Segundo, near Los Angeles International Airport. Coach Luke Walton and the Lakers’ last three draft classes also took a break from working out down the street to tour the complex. D’Angelo Russell, Brandon Ingram, Julius Randle, Jordan Clarkson, Larry Nance Jr., Ivica Zubac and Anthony Brown all donned hard hats, fluorescent orange vests and safety goggles to check out the concrete-and-drywall shell of their new home.
