Julius Randle Is Other Wordy

Written by vStrapaholic

Title supposed to say other wordly

Bro this Card is a slightly slower, slightly smaller, Radioactive Opal Giannis. This card is THE REAL DEAL. He is a true Point Forward/Center.

Bought for: Free on TTO (Got him in 90 minutes)

Strengths:

  • Inside scoring: Great at finishing near the rim, can post hook, post-fade, catches lobs, etc. Great Tendencies as well

  • Athleticism: Runs the floor like a CHEETAH. Will out-run other centers, and is EASILY runnable at pf, especially with a speed shoe.

  • Shooting: Butter release with an 89 base rating...add on some Floor General and Frank Vogel and he's got a 96 3 Ball. Got all The Shooting badges including Hof HZH, HOF Catch and Shoot, and (upgradeable) Gold Range. Hot zones everywhere on the court except the left hash

  • Playmaking: The iso is REAL bruh. The man has EVERY PLAYMAKING BADGE AND FINISHING BADGE ON ATLEAST GOLD, not to mention Hof showtime. He's a big. THAT CAN CURRY SLIDE His full-court sigs are really nice too!

-Defense: Excellent rebounder and can switch onto guards in PnR situations. Has every defensive badge on at least gold except Defensive Leader and Pick Pocket. Has a 7' Wingspan and plays lanes really well, along with great defensive tendencies

Weaknesses:

  • Only 6'8" at Center but feels closer to 6'11" IMO. I play it safe and run him at the 4 alongside Opal Kevin McHale.

  • Doesn't come with flexible or Dedeye but this is barely noticeable.

Recommended Strategy: "5-Out, PnR/Pop, Rim Run, Drive and Kick, or even 3 hunt"

Examples: Hawks 2018 + Bucks Playbook/2013 Heat Playbook

Other Comments: This card was worth it for me and honestly, he's a better reward than Michael Redd is in unlimited. So don't waste your time going against sweats and grind TTO!

I give this card a certified S T R A P rating of 96.1

Use if: "You want a do-it-all point big who can shoot the lights out"

Don't use if: "You don't want to grind TTO or you don't know how to do the ball drop/board reset glitch."

Bottom Line: "He's a free God. Top 10 PF and a Top 8 or 9 C"
