Julius Randle stopped by SportsNation studios today and almost set the basketball world on fire.
He was asked this year’s common question of who would win in a match up: his former team, the University of Kentucky VS. the team that took him 7th overall in last year’s draft, the LA Lakers.
While Beadle received the hot take she was hoping for – it proved to be a fleeting moment. Randle simply wanted to see the panel’s reaction when he answered that this year’s Kentucky team could “absolutely” beat the Lakers (and it was worth it), then quickly back tracked from the statement.
Julius is smart enough not to bite the hand that feeds you, so he went on to say that Kentucky wouldn’t win even one game out of a series.
