Defense rivaling james harden, nonexistent on offense, his handle looks awkward and not sure it's good enough to play point in the NBA

I'm cheering for him though hopefully he looks better in the actual game tonight. His playstyle looks exciting based on his college highlights




On the other hand Randle looks great in this vid. Coast to coast in transition, couple strong moves

Um he didn't look bad at all. Only thing I didn't like was 1 shot he took I thought was forced.

He looked jittery on defense but he wasn't out of place or assignment and even got deflections.


But holy fuk at clarkson and Randal, those two are intense.

i already posted on here he's overrated.

the guy is not a PG....

he's way too weak to drive in the paint and he's not atheltic at all. all his points were from like spot up 3's...he has no defense as well.

He looked normal. Just very indecisive. But normal isn't what he's supposed to be so I get what OP is saying

Randle is a beast doe

His handle looks gross as hell (also all carries) and his feet look slow as fuk on defense and offense

His college mix tapes look a lot better and this is just a little scrimmage video, but Lawd that looks bad. See how he looks in summer league

Randles handles dont look good at all to me, especially his right. I would pick him every time if he dribbles like the ball that far out using his right. That whole team looked like trash minus Nance Jr. But I wont use a scrimmage to make a final say in what I believe. I just hope Randle was messing around dribbling like that though for when the regular season comes.

Is this thread for real? We're not even talking about judging someone from a single summer league game. We're talking about a single short practice clip.

And Randle just started being allowed to play 5 on 5 like 2 weeks ago so temper expectations. He hasn't had a legit game in forever.

Yikes. Not the best look.

but we'll see.

His body looks so frail and weak in there.

EDIT: Tarik Black looking like max contract material. Srs.

Too early to dismiss the guy. Although Randle and Clarkson is showing something interesting.

Hes invisible if he isnt ball dominant/PG

I crack up when people say hes a combo guard. watch him in high school, he was a nobody as the 2.

Lol'd at this thread, D'angelo is still a rookie and he has a rookie body, once he gets his NBA body and a year of experience he is gonna be working ****. Although I still believe his first couple months to a year might be rocky, the scrimmage video didn't really show too much against him other than missed shots. On defense he isn't great but at 6'5" and with his wingspan he has good defensive potential. His speed and agility will also get better after a year or so.

Randle tho makes me cream my pants!!!

You're talking to the same retard that thinks okafor will be a bust after 1 summer league game.

I didn't say a bust

I said the guy plays zero defense at all and can't shoot free throws

how is that a 2nd overall draft pick?

lol.....

if you dont have athleticism it doesnt mean you cant drive by, you can use skills to fake out people and create lanes for yourself.

and either way, he will get quicker as he continues to train

D'Angelo looks like a future ALL NBA 1st Teamer

I see the Lakers grabbing the 7th seed, upsetting the 2 seed and making it to the 2nd round of the playoffs.

We made it. Kid has GOAT vision and passing. He'll be one of the best playmakers in the league in his first year. Probably best in the league by his 3rd. Kid is unreal making every right play. Played good defense last night too.

Guessing he'll be more aggressive shooting tonight too since he's more comfortable and Randle isn't playing so there's some extra shots.

Man we're poised for that 8th seed for sure. You can tell Clarkson is taking a leap this year too. He was by far the best player on the court last night, did whatever he wanted.

He isn't quite there yet and neither are the Lakers. I would say you guys have about another 2-3 years.
