Coming out of college, many experts compared Julius Randle to a young Zach Randolph because of his size and physicality. That may turn out to be the case, but Randle is showing that he can do so much more than just bang in the post.
Something that has caught the eye of everyone who has watched him this summer is his ballhandling ability and that was on full display in a Vine posted by the Lakers.
In the video, Randle uses a move you would expect from the likes of Kyrie Irving or Steph Curry to blow by Ryan Kelly.
Many fans are harking back to the days of Lamar Odom grabbing a rebound and pushing the ball up the court running the fast break himself, but Randle adds the ballhandling of Odom with the strength of a young Charles Barkley. Randle could be like a a runaway train coming down the lane.
Randle definitely looks like someone who will be a contributor this season, and moves like this are sure to get Lakers fans excited for the present and the future.
