Default Julius Randle FLOURISHING in New Orleans

Freed from the Lakers curse and he drops 25/8/3 in only 24 minutes of play. What a talent. Amazing how quick things can go when you don't play for a cancer franchise.

Should have kept him and let the Young Drip King walk tbh. Terrible management by the Lakers once more.

Magic auctioned off him, Clarkson and Nance in exchange for LeBron and etc.

Magic is about to do the SAME THING to Ingram, Ball or Hart.

Mark my words.

Ingram and Kuzma are untouchable. Magic will surely use Ball as trade asset. Hart is replaceable, and he's not exactly in high demand right now.

Paul george isnít exactly looking like a prize max player these days. Dude is streaky.


Cousins, off an Achilles injury? That cousins?


And Lebron that is still considered the best player in the game?


Sit down dude.

This thread is some real BS. Randle had many great games last year, the fans like him and both coaching and management has spoken well of him. Lebron came to replace him in the starting lineup and he wanted to leave because of that, which is fair, but don't think that most Laker fans wouldn't have wanted to keep him as a small ball center off the bench, because he can truly help make a team a contender in that role. You just can't say no to replace him with one of the best players in the game, even though it hurts.

If they're stars why do they need him to make them better?

replace lebron with literally anyone and the heat win in 2011


replace lebron with any top 5 player and the heat still win in 2012 and 2013


replace lebron with any top 5 player and the cavs still win in 2016 given the same bullshit suspensions and kyries dominance/game winner


replace lebron with any top 10 player last year and the cavs still make it to the finals given the game 7 rigging's vs indiana and boston



replace current lebron with any top 10 player and the lakers still probly squeak into the playoffs this year with the league wanting them to succeed
