the biggest reason I think people wanting to get Bledsoe might be because of the possible lack of slashing ability by this squad due to an aging Kobe and no elite wing player.
But I would love to see what Randle could do before we really trying to jump to conclusion. Because while him developing into baby Z-bo, or someone with great post move WOULD be great/ideal. I'll take efficient buckets and defense all day even if it doesn't come from the post.
Lakers had a chance to keep Randle and offer huge bucks to Bledsoe but they didn't. Ofcourse they would have lost Swaggy, Lin and Hill in the process....By getting Lin tho, they atleast get a pick next summer.
