lmao...I actually dont think very highly of Blake so that wasn't a huge compliment. I think he is overrated due to his dunking ability.
Think about it this way:
In this same thread, people have mercilessly bashed Andrew Wiggins and he's been a borderline AllStar statistically since his 2nd season. Wiggins averaged more points as a ROOKIE than Randle has all 4 years. Wiggins averaged more points as a rookie than Ingram has either of his 2 seasons.
Randle and Ingram are considered sure-fire AllStars on this board and Wiggins is a guaranteed bust on all levels.
That's the type of logic we have going on here.
I'd LOVE to keep Randle and you know I'm one of his toughest critics but the hyperbole and overhyping going on here is ludicrous. Randle deserves to be paid and he'd do well next to stars in this system BUT when you have a chance to land HOF type players (LeBron), Randle isn't a high priority.
Everyone can claim that's my hate talking and I don't care. Ask any fan outside of Lakers fans and you'd be laughed out of the room for even suggesting turning down a chance to sign LeBron or PG13 to keep Randle. Ask Jeanie about that Spectrum Deal that needs to be re-newed in a few years. Ask Magic and Luke about talent and stars on the Lakers.
But hey, this is the same place that had D'Angelo Russell overhyped as a Future HOFer so...
