Randle has less than a 13M cap hold just for the record.
And I knew GCMD would be the one that overreacted to the Drew League video.
If you're judging drew league on defense identity then you haven't been paying attention. NBA guys always go half speed at Drew League, it's the people they play against that try to go full bore at them. But when NBA guys turn it up slightly you see the skill gap.
If we're gonna take that so seriously we may as well assume Randle is gonna get 5 blocks a game next season as well, as he got 28/18 with 5 blocks that game after he turned it up a little after the guy tried to dunk on him twice. That guy was the same guy that tried to fight Metta last year in Drew League, so he makes habit of goading/pissing off NBA players. Prior to trying to dunk on Randle a 2nd time, for 3 quarters Randle played at about half speed, like Young and Derozan also were, and the other team got brave.
But after he dunked on Randle and then tried to do it a 2nd time, Randle replied back with a big block at the other end, and Derozan and Young and Randle turned it up, and wound up winning, with them dominating the 4th quarter and winning the game.
The guy who huffed and puffed his chest, proved to be a determent for him and his team because Randle turned it up a little, dominated and mean mugged the guy whenever he got the chance, Derozan and Young followed suit, and that guys team got beat.
It's best to not poke the bear, especially with the skill gap.
