The more you are around Julius Randle, the more you realize how special the Kentucky signee could turn out to be next year.
Consider who he tries to mold his all-around game after.
“If there is anybody, I watch LeBron (James) a lot. Tthe stuff that he does on the court as far as getting his teammates involved while also being an attacker. If anybody, him. Kobe (Bryant) has been my favorite player to watch, but LeBron’s been my favorite player to study,” Randle said.
“Kobe always was my favorite player growing up, but honestly I never really grew up trying to model myself after anybody. I just took a lot of stuff from everybody’s game and kind of made my own.”
And it has worked out very, very well and by this time next year it would not be a huge shock to see Randle in position to be another No. 1 overall NBA draft pick coached by John Calipari.
