During his appearance on SportsNation today on ESPN, Julius Randle told the story of the day Kobe Bryant called him over for a game of one-on-one. Randle had said he could beat Kobe on Lakers media day and Kobe was ready for the young rook to back that talk up on the court.
Randle told Michelle Beadle, Corey Maggette and Marcellus Wiley that he went up 7-3 on Kobe in a game to 21. Then Kobe became Kobe and won the game, 21-7.
So what happened to that 7-3 lead?
“He started fouling,” Randle explained.
Later in the show, Julius broke the record on the boxing machine. Remind me to stay away from his bad side.
