So while having a PF that can put up 20 & 10 sounds awesome, I would rather see the Lakers go in another direction instead of bringing him back...!

Cheers!


The Lakers have gone in another direction, a PF who doesn’t put up 20 and 10 who plays poor defense.


at least he got to punch CP3.


No, he didn’t


he was suspended for throwing a punch... I think he missed that one too...

I thought that the defensive metrics for Jules this year indicate he's been playing ineffective defense IIRC?

its so hard to gauge mans defense because he always ends up in those weird bench lineups they have where nobody can guard anybody and nobody can dribble either

he's generally been a net positive in the starting lineup since he entered it tho from what my eyeball holes are tellin me

To put it mildly, yeah. Last I checked - and it's been a couple weeks, granted - he was in the bottom 5 at his position. And from what I've seen, gone is the defensive intensity that drove his improvement early last season.

More offensive minded this year.

Julius Randle 22/12/8
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uDsMCc517e4



24/10/4 on 54% from the field and 33% from three in his last 5. Outside of Anthony Davis, this kid's the best power forward in the West.

Yeah, and they don’t use him the way he was effective last year on defense
