Julius Randle says he wants to be the next Kobe not Shaq

Players in this post:
Kobe Bryant Julius Randle

I’m going to go out on a limb and say we are going to be talking a lot about Julius Randle and Kobe Bryant this season.  Not individual stories but shared stories.

We have already had stories on Julius Randle takes the How Much Do You Know About Kobe Quiz, Randle vs Bryant in Practice, Kobe tells Julius “if you fuck this up, you are an idiot and Kobe lets Julius listen to his never released rap album…OK I made up the last one.

The latest chapter in this bromance came last night when Mike Bresnahan posted on Twitter that Randle said “I don’t want to be the next Shaq. I want to be the next Kobe.”

To be continued…
