    They tried their best to push Kobe out of greatest conversation and they did it to the extreme, thinking it would work but what Kobe did speaks for itself. Want us to side with them not knowing their credibility is at stake.

    Kobe will always be the biggest influence on the new waves of superstars that come into the league. The moment that has died down the league will be dead.

    I love how all the current players pay Kobe his respect and how he's inspired them,.......ESPN is like Fox News and CNN , they are BIAS in how they treat Lebron Vs. Kobe , Its only because Kobe never cared about the media when he played!

    As a Lakers fan, I love Randle. Came in as a big time player. Suffered through injuries early on in his career. Bounced back and put up 20 & 10 last year.

    Easy to hate on Julius for missing that last shot the other night but we gotta remember he hit 3 clutch 3’s to get us to that point 🧡💙

    He needs to work on going and finishing right handed that'll take him to the next level.

  • Justin Edwards

    I honestly think as long as Mitchell robinson, Rj, and Dennis continue to develop then the Knicks have a strong chance of being atleast a sleeper 8th seed with Randle leading the charge, I think they just need more shooting

    Another Magic Johnson blunder, letting Julius walk for nothing! The guy balled out for the Lakers. He is kinda like Draymond Green. I wish him the very best with the Knicks! Much LA love for Julius Randle.

    I like Randall. His work ethic is among the highest in the league. What I'm about to say wont win him a popularity contest. But to be that player that he potentially can be,will mean him to be more nasty. Start a fight or something. Set more vicious picks. He's too much of a nice guy. He should study Barkley,Oakley and Laimbeer

    • Boss Hog Zoomer
      Boss Hog Zoomer 29 days ago

      @KpR333 He has a nice guy reputation. He stood up for himself with Cousins. Cousins thought he was soft and found out he wasn't. Power Forwards like Maurice Lukas would initiate a fight. That's not Randall's game or nature and that's cool. But if he wants to one day be a hall of famer,he has to step it up. Step it up in a big way. All the potential is there.
