It looks like I’m going to have to update the “Don’t F**k With Julius Randle” compilation video.
After the Kings blew a 19-point lead and took a 10-point L against the Lakers, former Wildcats DeMarcus Cousins and Julius Randle had some words for each other after the game. And while Randle was showing off his big Kool-Aid smile and Ben McLemore was trying to push Boogie away, the rest of the Lakers were smiling and laughing at the confrontation – except for Mozgov but I think that’s because of the language barrier.
After the game, Boogie said his confrontation was “just some friendly UK love” and Randle is like a “little brother” to him.
When asked about the lack of aggressiveness by the Kings in the 2nd half, Boogie struggled with a response and eventually said the Kings played “tender for certain reasons.”
DON’T F WITH RANDLE
I’ll buy into this confrontation being nothing more than “UK love” between two Wildcats, but it’s another instance that makes old school cats like me love guys like Randle and Boogie. I personally can’t stand seeing a bunch of guys on different teams riding banana boats together. So watching Dallas native Julius Randle get into the faces of All-Stars like Boogie and legends like Kevin Garnett brings back great memories of guys like Larry Johnson (another Dallas native) who had no issues mixing it up with any and everybody on the court…although he couldn’t land a punch when things escalated.
So here’s to Randle for putting a big smile on my face and his teammates.
