Lakers News: Julius Randle Aims At Averaging Double-Double

The training camps are just a few days away. All eyes will be on the guys coming out off-injury.

The training camps are just a few days away. All eyes will be on the guys coming out off-injury. A broken fibula side-lined Julius Randle in his rookie season. Second-year forward Randle looked very rusty in his minutes at Las Vegas.

“I broke my leg!” Randle had shouted in pain.

Randle though is up-beat despite all concerns. The young forward is keen on striking form in the coming season. Randle has set a personal goal for himself – he wants to average a double-double. And the second year forward is confident of achieving that.

Randle said, “I’m just going to do what’s best for the team and whatever I can do to help the team win.”

He has shrugged off the psychological set-back of the devastating injury he suffered last season, and pointed out that it made him tougher.

“It made me the person I am today,” Randle said. “It gave me perspective on patience and the process in general. I got knocked down and was expecting big things out of myself throughout that season. It didn’t happen that way. So where I do go from here? Where do I prepare myself where I was better before?”

Julius will be getting the opportunity to achieve his goal this coming season. It’s not that important whether he is a likely starter or not, as surely a huge number of playing minutes await him. He is a part of the excellent core of young talents for the Lakers’ roster this season along with Jordan Clarkson and D’Angelo Russell.
