Former Wildcat and current Laker Julius Randle is back in Lex for a camp with the kids. Of course they couldn’t let him get by without doing an interview.
He joked about Calipari and the gift he’ll be given at his Wedding by saying “It better be something good!” He also misses the relationships he made at Kentucky and the area the most. Come back anytime Randle, you’re welcome here.
One the most pivotal things Randle could have said:
“I committed to a family.” That has to make the Big Blue faithful smile from ear to ear. We love hearing former Cats say that because it’s 100% true. We are forever family here, even after your college days are over.
Rumors of an all Kentucky team VS an NBA team to happen in Rupp Arena have surfaced and Randle tells us what he thinks would happen and it wouldn’t be a challenge.
Dakari Johnson recently signed a contract with the OKC Thunder. Randle congratulated him and tells us he and Dakari still keep in touch and that he will be at his upcoming wedding. Of course we expected nothing less because once you’ve been at Kentucky your automatically family.
He also tells us about the Ball-Fox rivalry:
“I guess that rivalry is going to live forever,” Randle said Saturday before an upcoming youth camp.
“Obviously De’Aaron is a great player,” Randle said. “I loved him, through the whole season and the whole draft process. My point guard is Lonzo. I’m excited to play with him, excited to you know to build chemistry with him through the season. Obviously, De’Aaron is going to have a great career. He’s going to be an excellent player.”
