He's not quite the above the rim player like LeBron was. More times than not during high school games, he played below the rim.

Physically, though, he has about as NBA-ready a body as it gets for someone that age. I still think that's partly a negative. It can be like a father playing with his kids against some of these high school and college teams. It obviously won't be like that in the NBA. Although he does possess a surprising combination of power and quickness for his size. Definitely very good for any basketball player, just not quite LeBron. I mean Thomas Robinson was jacked, too.

first real test will be today. he's dominated in the couple games kentucky have played so far against small local schools

he's a beast though. good ball handler for his size, amazing athlete, can shoot a little bit. he's really gonna make the #1 pick a hard decision for some team. he'll be able to contribute right away, while wiggins will probably need a year or two

Physically isn't saying much. Athletically is the big deal. Physically and athletically its definitely Blake Griffin who jumps higher but isn't as fast. Lebron also has great coordination.

Julius Randle is also one ugly mother****er. A face only a mother could love.

I've watch him a little bit and some draft videos. First thing that came to mind was Jamal Mashburn. Has the body to play inside, but choose to be a perimeter player more than you would like for someone his size.

i don't understand the z-bo comparisons. randle is a freak athlete with ball very good ball handling skills and a great perimeter game. z-bo is a bruiser

they're both lefties i guess

LeBron's size isn't what made him special...it was his athleticism AND quickness at that size. Neither of which Randle can compare with.

Not sure if Draft Express is wrong, but their reporting on him is even those he's strong, he's not a freak athlete in the class of a Wiggins or LeBron James or something like that. A great athlete, but not a freak one like you're mentioning.

"Weaknesses: While very solid, especially considering his age, not a jaw dropping physical specimen type of athlete ... Doesn't play on the box as much as he should, too perimeter oriented. Should focus a little more on refining his post game which will really be his bread and butter as he gets older ... Settles for too many jumpers at times instead of imposing his will inside ... Too left hand dominant. Needs to work at using his right hand better ..."
