It's really not. He went up against a weak frontline today. Dwight Powell is terrible on D. Dirk doesn't even try. Like Shoeking said, his motor runs really high. He's very quick and physical.

But he's a turnover machine at the PF spot. Part of this is because he can't finish with his off hand, and always goes back to his dominant hand. Like that lil pump fake over the head thing he does when he drives right.

When a PF sits on it, it's an instant turnover or block.

Some great players only had one hand




I don't think I've ever, ever ever seen him make a layup with his left hand

Young BG was a clearly superior player than Randle. His handle and vision were and are light years ahead of Julius. Also a better athlete. Comparable in rebounding and pushing the ball. That's about it.

Blake probably had the greatest rookie season since '03 Melo. 22/12. Sheesh

Blake had a whole year to eat sleep and drink NBA ball though.

Yes it's not the same as playing but he didn't waste his injury like it seems some would have(Embiid).

He got right to work

This is essentially Julius Randles rookie year.

He played 7 minutes last year. He's a rookie in my eyes. Similar to Blake on that front. Blake got injured in like the last minute of his last preseason game in '09.

So Randle has had a whole year to Digest the NBA as well.

Thank you. I was in the middle of typing this when I saw your post.

Re: off hand. The majority of players favor their strong hand and rarely go opposite. Harden, duncan, Tony parker, zach randolph the list goes on and on. You need to be able to drive with both hands and get a good enough angle to where you can finish with whatever hand you please. It's ok if he drives right and finishes left...it still counts. We He's capable of driving with both hands, finishing is a work in progress but what he really should work on is not being so predictable with his timing otherwise those shots you guys are talking about aren't getting up clean no matter which hand he throws it with

Yes sir. I was referring to Randle and comparing it to Blake in that way. I just worded it wrong.

They both did it right, I think highly of them for it.

Jah is good but Gobert last game made him think a lot about getting close to the basket.

Gobert is fun to watch on defense. Guys just hesitate when driving to the rim.

he'll have at least a handful. his bball mind is too strong not to figure out ways to exploit what he's given. right now i think he's still testing his body to see what he can and can't do. that contusion took away his training camp and post season so this is the experimental stage. he really doesnt look that bad for someone with as many injuries as he's had. conditioning looks decent. the rhythm will come back in time. these other old guys are flourishing, kobe will figure it out, he just has to be able to stay on the court to do it.

No kobe is washed its not even funny many i swear he needs his *** knocked out for not retiring already. Son is beyond useless now

You know your career is over when you get outplayed by nick young

And d russ boy oh boy... Only 3 games in but son is a trash can with sneakers on you could photoshop a garbage can with sneakers on and i couldnt tell the difference

Im beyond heated about those two clown shoes

Orange julius randle is a beast though him and clarkson

Hate laker management for not trying hard to get kat

Kobe went 3-15?

I know why he doesn't stop playing but the only thing I can ask is 'Why doesn't he stop playing'

"I apologize, turns out it was not the Thunder's year.  I wish they hadn't played the games"

Maybe because he signed his 2 year contract and tries to catch up MJ in career field goals made. But if he keeps on shooting like this, we won't reach MJs FGM. I think the current deficit lies around 1.000 baskets.

But his comments 2 years ago where he said he wanted to win championship within those 2 years are quite a bad joke. Even Kobe im his prime cannot win with the current roster and coach.

Field goals made? I don't think that's a record anyone really pays attention to. You must be thinking about career points. And he already passed MJ in career points last season, after which he should've retired.

 

Right now, there is literally no realistic milestone he can aim for. Karl Malone is still around 4.500 points away. He would have a very good shot at passing Kareem at #2 in career playoff points, but that would of course take the Lakers making the playoffs first. Which isn't happening.

I think once kobe realized he is no longer 25, he'll be all right.

He's making himself so easy to guard by trying to play like he's 25. Will be more efficient if he plays within the offense and let himself be the 3rd option or lower.

He can't strike with the defensive keyed on him no more... Got to strike by getting under the radar.

Glad I got my bros good seats to the Lakers game this year. It's looking more and more like the last Kobe year.

And that's the even bigger problem kobe has. Not his exhausted body but his mind. He seems to ignore that he is not making those 3 pointers and ignore his teammates as well.

Former co worker who's a Lakers fan and a residential NYC Knicks hater argued with me for 30 minutes on how much the Knicks suck, have no bench, Melo is washed, and Kobe is still top 10, etc. Out of nowhere he decided to bet me $50 that the Lakers will have a better record than the Knicks at the end of the season. Not once did I say that the Knicks are better than the Lakers but how the hell can you ignore the fact that the Lakers play in the WEST with all these excellent teams. I'm not a betting man at all but I couldn't turn that down hopefully I win

I don't even think Julius' lack of finishing ability has anything to do with being left hand dominant. It's moreso him trying to play above the rim when he's not that dude.
