Julius Randle ain’t scared of Kevin Garnett


Kevin Garnett can be pretty intimidating, but Julius Randle refused to let the NBA great push him around last night. After a foul in the Lakers/Timberwolves game, Garnett started trash talking Randle under the basket and Randle turned around and gave it right back to the 20-year-NBA vet:

Garnett got a technical for that, but Randle still wasn’t satisfied. A few plays later, he bounced the ball off Garnett’s back on the in-bounds:

Baaaha. Randle finished the game (only his second ever as a pro) with 15 points and 11 rebounds. After the game, he had this to say about Garnett’s trash talking.

“It doesn’t scare me. I’m not scared of anybody. …It gets me going. I’ve been watching him all my life, so I know what to expect.”

Got ’em.

    Tyler, that would have been a perfect time to drop in that hilarious GIF of the face Julius made after the UofL game. One of my favorites!

    Love seeing Julius assert himself. I would, however, remind him that the leading cause of injury and death among young lions is assuming that old lions are “over the hill.”

    KG is the biggest fake tough guy in the NBA.

    I’d like to think I contributed to this article…I’m going to just think that regardless. Loved seeing this!

    That’s the first time I’ve seen Randle inbounds the ball without stepping over the line.
