With all the talk these days of NBA star players wanting to join forces to win titles, Los Angeles Lakers rookie Julius Randle would prefer to beat them.
During a recent interview (as noted by the Los Angeles Times), Randle was asked the small possibility that LeBron could sign with the Lakers and he noted that he’d prefer to play against him:
“I’d rather play against LeBron. I just have an older mentality,” he said. “I want to beat the best. Maybe in the future I’d want to play with him. I’ve been watching him my whole life. I’d rather compete against him and try and beat him than be on his team.”
I have a sinking suspicion that Randle is going to become a quick favorite with the Lakers fans.
