Julius Randle answers fan questions on Reddit

During their rookie photo shoot today, the NBA held an AMA (Ask Me Anything) on the website Reddit. For those unfamiliar with the site, it’s essentially a large forum with many smaller, more dedicated forums (subreddits). An AMA is essentially a Q&A session with users, often done by celebrities and athletes.

In this case, the NBA created an account and fielded questions for the crop of free agents. Lakers rookie Julius Randle was one of those answering questions, and provided a couple entertaining answers. We’ll list the questions and his answers below, with links to each one.


Who do you think will win Rookie of the Year?

Shaking my head… Who do you think it will be. You think I’m going to say anyone but myself.


What would you guess your 2k rating to be?



Loved seeing your crossover in the summer league. What was one thing you saw in Vegas that was a big difference from college ball?

The spacing is a lot better in the NBA than in college.


Are you nervous at all to play with Kobe Bryant and the Lakers?

No! I am excited about the competition with these guys and learning a lot at a young stage of my career.


I was a big fan of yours in college and i was really hoping the celtics would draft you. Now that you’re a laker, I am going to have to root against you. How do you feel about the Celtics-Lakers rivalry?

It’s a big time rivalry. Two storied franchises. Glad to be a part of it


How does it feel going to play with your childhood hero, Kobe Bryant? Have you spoke with him yet? If so, what advice has he given you?

Yeah I’ve spoken to him. He hasn’t given me any advice yet, we’ve just talked about working out and the team.
