i still agree that randle gonna eat big this season.


He’s less than a year older than KP and KP can’t go 1 on 1 like that, or handle or pass like that either.

KP could definitely do it against the YMCA players Randle was running against in that video


I'd give the YMCA guy at least some odds of going straight up at the rim and KP blowing it.

Yeah, but it's not about their competition, it's about their skill improvement. Iman never showed skill improvements. What we would see from him was his jumping abilities. Randle is showing an increased skill that is translatable to his NBA game. His step back shot is about the cleanest I've seen from any big man and he does it like a guard. His first step going to the rim is also quicker than any other big man I've seen. KP was a great outside shooter and a great defender, in which with a major knee injury for a 7 footer I can see that skill taking a huge hit due to lateral movement. I myself felt a huge difference in skill after tearing my ACL, yeah I may not have been a professional but being military I depended on daily (sometimes 4 a day) workout routines that a lot of pro athletes would look like "what the heck did I just get into?" It was nothing for me to wake up and say "I feel like running 5 miles today with a frack vest, rucksack, and boots." KP's skill set relies on his athleticism and with his history of knee problems + ACL tear I can't see that trend just all of a sudden disappearing.

With this team I'll take Randle over KP, Randle has more offense ability than KP from ball handling, passing (sharing), strength, backing down his opponent, driving to the basket ex........ Defense awareness is the only thing I can see KP having the upper hand over Randle, in which right now I can't see KP reacting to what his mind wants his body to do. Trust me when I say his mind will scream move to the left while his feet will stay planted as if they didn't hear him. I can see him being overly cautious, afraid to get hurt again.

On a side note, did you know that Dolph Lundgren has a degree in chemical engineering, and a genius level IQ.

Genius IQ? Certainly something else neither KP nor Janis has.

I've said this before... if you compare the output of player 1 via the output of player 2... THERE'S NO WAY that one player should be paid TEN MILLION MORE than the other! In my honest opinion, the Knicks came away with this on the winning side. I'll take Randle/DSJ + picks any day of the week and twice on Sunday.
