‘Sophomore Slumps’ Unlikely For Jordan Clarkson And Julius Randle
USATSI_8849318_153179170_lowres

Heading into the 2015-16 NBA season for the Los Angeles Lakers, some of the team’s “sophomores” are actually producing at a very encouraging level. Julius Randle may still “feel” like a rookie to those of us observing due to last year’s injury, but the 20-year-old is clearly showing signs of at least benefiting from being around the team while rehabbing.

“Julius [Randle] is an animal,” Roy Hibbert declared after the Lakers’ second preseason game last week. “He’s the future of this team. He’s a future face of the NBA. That boy can play.” Hibbert concluded.

That certainly sounds like high praise for a player that has played all of 14 minutes of actual NBA basketball (regular season), but those that were around the team throughout the summer couldn’t help themselves from showering the power forward’s efforts with praise. Kobe Bryant, who might know a thing or two about assessing basketball players, echoed similar sentiments as the 20-year veteran referred to Randle as “Lamar Odom in Zach Randolph’s body” recently as well.

At 6’9 and listed at 250 pounds — although he may be even lighter at this stage — he’s in phenomenal shape for a man that has undergone two significant surgical procedures (leg and foot) within the last 11 months. He has an exceptional first step for a man of his size, and seems to be finding more appropriate times to utilize it as the game appears to be “slowing down” around him. Although the results have yet to come, one look at how much smoother and more comfortable he looks when presented with the open look from the mid-range tells you how much work Randle has put into extending his range.

Randle’s willingness to turn-and-face and take open looks from the outside will actually make his first step that much more effective once he is able to knock them down with regularity. When you’re as strong and aggressive as Randle tends to be, foul trouble could be a concern in the early going.

If Randle continues to make plays like this (courtesy of our Trevor Lane), he’ll quickly make believers of even the most staunch of critics. His preseason performances have, at the very least, raised a few eye brows of those that may have questioned just how effective the former Kentucky Wildcat could be at this level. Frankly, he’s deserved every bit of the praise his teammates offered, and has given us every reason to think this front office might just have another special player to serve a prominent role in returning the team to a successful path.

As we discussed in a recent Lakers Nation roundtable, fellow second-year player Jordan Clarkson could very well challenge to lead this team in scoring when it is all said and done; which, quite frankly, simply wouldn’t have even been a consideration in previous years for a roster with Kobe Bryant’s name on it. Like Randle, Clarkson enters the year with high expectations from the organization and fans alike. Unlike, his teammate, Clarkson was able to endure a relatively slow start to his inaugural year and was actually one of the most impressive rookie’s around the league from February through the end of the regular season.

His Rookie of the Month (March – 15.8 points, 5.2 assists and 4.8 rebounds per game) and All-Rookie First Team selections weren’t enough to prevent some from questioning whether a good portion of his production should be attributed to the old adage of “big numbers for a bad team.” To Clarkson’s credit, not only did he avoid allowing such relative personal success to go to his head, but it almost seemed to fuel the 23-year-old to want to continue improving. Not, necessarily, to disprove any remaining doubt or hesitance, but because the former Missouri Tiger appears to simply have a drive to continue honing and developing his skills.

With Bryant’s eventual ‘curtain call’ looming a lot sooner than later, it would certainly behoove Clarkson (and all the young players) to “soak up” as much information as possible while the opportunity is available. Bryant is literally a walking, talking, ‘shooting’ basketball encyclopedia for this new generation of players.

Clarkson’s commitment to improving was also shown in his new physique as he reportedly added as many as 10-15 pounds of muscle due to a strenuous off-season workout regiment, and looks to be even more explosive than last year. Like Randle, Clarkson’s first step is strong enough to get into the paint quite regularly; and similarly to his versatile power forward, the combo guard would also benefit from continuing to work on his outside shot in order to provide balance to his offensive game. After shooting just 31 percent from beyond the arc as a rookie, he looks a lot more comfortable on his three-point stroke so far this preseason.

The two of them have looked better and better with each game, but the Lakers still fell to 1-4 on the preseason. This won’t impact the veterans on the roster, but the psychology of the game means that much more when you are dealing with a group chock full of so many young players still trying to adjust to playing at this level, let alone learn how to win together.

To be clear, while the results of these games don’t ultimately matter, it would be nice to see the team find a way to continue growing and improving while also transitioning into the regular season with at least a taste for what it feels like to succeed together. Clarkson and Randle are two of the players that have shown an ability to do so individually, but the coaching staff will simply have to find a way to get such “gains” to translate into the group’s overall success. With so many young and viable talents to work with, there are certainly less enviable positions to be in.

  • Pleasant Article Mr. Davis.

    Clarkson and Randle have consistently impressed this preseason.
    They are The Flash and Zoom!

    Randle with that lightning first step, and Clarkson speeding through that obstacle course of opponents.

    Russell will also control the game once he fully adjusts to the NBA.

    I want to see a victory against the Warriors Saturday!

    GO KOBE, GO LAKERS!!

  • true, but he is an exception since he was the most “nba ready” of his draft class.

  • I don’t understand why so many fans think Clarkson will be a star. I think JC will be a sixth man on a good team at his best.

    Russell and Randle have that all-star potential

  • I agree. I’ve never really been impressed with Clarkson. I think he was able to thrive last year only because he became one of the only options. I think you need to look at the bigger picture that he was a part of a losing system with limited options.

  • You sound just like a fanboy. Clarkson is OK. He’s not going to be anything but that. Whoever said he reminds him of Russell Westbrook was absolutely out of their mind (It was Mitch).

  • definitely nba-ready. Most belonged to Parker and Wigs. Those two could put up numbers right away. Not sure if Randle could do what he does now last season without having the down time to rework himself, body and skills.

  • Absolutely. I think Clarkson can be an impact role player who might sneak into an all-star game or two over his career.

    Randle has the tools to be a franchise cornerstone — he just needs to hit that mid-range jumper enough to keep defenses honest.

  • The main reason we’re so excited about Clarkson is his draft position — 18/5/5 seems to be within his wheelhouse, which is OUTSTANDING for the 46th overall pick.

    If nothing else, it shows that the FO can still find talent.

  • considering his skill level, athleticism and work ethic — no question. i think he can be better than ellis, actually. he has more potential as a defender and he’s a little bigger.

  • I’d say that’s probably about his peak — may not be as pure a scorer as Ellis but, as @vdogg mentioned, could compensate in other areas.

  • To clarify: I don’t want Monta Ellis either…I’m talking in terms of a statistical/productivity comparison.

    Ellis is a great scorer, so I’d expect him to finish his career with 2-3 more ppg than Clarkson, but I’d expect Clarkson to have 2-3 more rpg and 1-2 more apg…making them a wash.

  • Stylewise, there’s been talks about where Clarkson is going and the guys he’s been compared to the most were CP3 and Westbrook – or even Monta Ellis (in terms of style, not ceiling). The more I look at his play the more it reminds me of Tony Parker with less speed. The same range, the same first step, the same floater and the mess he brings to the defenders in the paint. If he happens to get anywhere near Parker’s offensive and defensive abilities, that would be great already.

    Enough with the Russell bashing and trolling!

  • Julius Randle will most likely be the guy that leads this team in scoring after Kobe, the reason being his game is unique among PFs with his speed, athleticism, aggressiveness, and overall skill set. think Karl Malone body, with a Charles Barkley game. This season I think he will be outstanding an most likely the best pick from his draft class….17ppg., 8rpg., 3apg., 1spg., 1bpg.,
    Jordan Clarkson is proving to be what we all though..a SG with upside, he has the game of a Taller Baron Davis without the play making ability. He just needs to keep working on his D and needs to learn that hero ball won’t work on this team….
    15ppg., 4rpg., 3apg., 1.5spg.,
    D’Angelo Russell is the most unique guy on the team because he has superstar potential. He can pass and shoot, although at he moment he seems to be differing more to teammates which hasn’t given him the shooting reps he needs but that will come. Those taller Steph Curry comparisons are pretty accurate and the other 2 kids our nucleus looks really nice. 13ppg., 7apg., 5rpg., 1spg.,

    our D has looked bad at times mainly because JC gets burned when he keeps looking for the pic but that will improve and also when nick is on the floor, as far as Nick Young goes i hope he finds his stroke and develops trade value so we can get something more useful on this team…

  • he probably could on a terrible team without Kobe and 2 prized prospects, on this team he will be our SG that attacks the rim and draws fouls and when DLO needs a break he will be the guy with the ball in his hands creating….

  • The key for these young guys to play well is the Kobe factor. Kobe has to be patient with these guys and instill confidence in them. So far, it looks like these young guys aren’t going to back down and appear to be hungry for success. If they play as a “team” they can surprise people.

I hope I’m wrong and he end up being better than RW but I don’t see him getting to quite that level. Westbrook is an out of this world athlete and has the mean attitude to go with it.

  • Are you really going to split hairs?
    “Statistically speaking” the stats are very comparable… and in a “stats world” are close enough to be considered the same. <- At best you're talking about a .05% variance.

    So what point are you really trying to make?

    And, if you were to take Clarkson's stats from the All Star game to the end, they would be better.

    Again, what point are you trying to make?

  • Are you really going to split hairs?
    “Statistically speaking” the stats are very comparable… and in a “stats world” are close enough to be considered the same. <- At best you're talking about a .05% variance and in the stats world that would be considered "statistically significant" (aka "relevant for the argument you are trying to validate").

    And, if you were to take Clarkson's stats from the All Star game to the end, they would be better. So, its a very valid method to use Westbrook as a measure for Clarkson's future and growth (as of now).

    So, what point are you trying to make?

  • While I agree that Russell and Randle have brighter star potential, I think you’re trying to undersell Clarkson just to be shocking.

    At this point in his career – after 1 season – he’s already better than most 6th men.

    Do you care to retract your statement? Or do you really want to stand on that bullcrap?

  • I see no reason why he won’t be equal to Monta by the end of this season.

    He’s already averaging 14ppg. And by the end of the season he should improve and be a top 5 SG.

    So unless you expect Clarkson to suddendly reach a plateau as of today, you might want to reconsider.

    Or maybe you will just be a troll-lite and try to spout whatever contrarian bullcrap you feel necessary to stand out and feel “different.”

  • No reason?

    There are plenty of reasons that Clarkson would NEVER been the level of Monta. For once, Monta actually has very good basketball and instincts to score.

    Clarkson not so much!!

    Last Lakers season was stupid, Clarkson’s stats were inflated by his sugardaddy coach Scott. At the end of the days, he’s a shooting guard that can’t shoot!!!

  • any word lately on odom?
    i hope hes doing better and is alright now.
    alot of people miss him and are concerned not only Laker fans alot of NBA players too.
    i hope they give an update soon.
    i hate being in the dark and not knowing whats happening.
    this is the time media needs to step up their game.

    did you actually watch Lakers games last season??

    Clarkson was a moron with no basketball IQ, and got his shot blocked like 2-3 times each game!!

  • So why are his preseason stats equaling Monta’s?

    And can you explain to me why you think that over a 10-year career, Jordan can’t improve?

    Seems to me like you want to fight a battle to prove Clarkson is a bad player using whatever straws you can grasp.

  • It’s not where you start, but where you end. Check out 2nd picks that were all stars. He has the potential to be one (rookie season proof), but I admit he isn’t there yet. Can’t close the door on him though.

    he didnt even play 1 full game last year.

    lin ignored Kobe and Kobe ran up and fouled the player and cursed at jeremy lin bc hes not a smart player..
    thats the stuff Kobe has to deal with along with boozer and jordan hill.
    these guys he played with arent elite they arent even average except for ed davis and maybe wayne ellington those 2 could be stars for sure.

  • Kobe is the best player right now.
    randle and clarkson are probably tied for 2nd.
    lou williams is the 3rd best player right now.
    4th would be nick young or hibbert.

    he may even have a case for GOAT.
    but the only thing holding him back is a short 12 year career.
    i love Magic hes great guy and i wish he would have had an easier life in the NBA and a longer career.
    For having so many problems and difficult things happen he is a very positive person like lamar odom.
    you can only wish the best for them…..

  • Are you using PRE-season stats? haha!!

    Obviously, no one has crystal ball for the future, but watching the games, you could see that there are several areas of problems of Clarkson’s game.

    1) Can’t really shoot

    2) Not a natural PG – lack of instincts and court vision and passing skills, and his dribbling is only pass-able in NBA
    3) His defense is terrible. For a rookie, that brought a serious question about his game

    …….. I can keep going …

  • Bad player? Not sure, but i don’t even know if he would get much playing in Lakers this season, considering how many guards they have.

    As a matter of fact, I don’t think Clarkon is good enough to each enough playing time in any NBA team, except the bottom-feeders like 76ers

    he cant dribble and penetrate?
    are you dumb dude?
    he was our pg last year he did very well too.

    Randle has a 1/2 game of true NBA experience. He could win ROY this year

    Clarkson has a 1/2 season of true NBA experience.

  • So when your made up stats, don’t fit your bullcrap statement, you change the game to an even more fantasy stat, per 36 lol, why not per 48 or per 100 possessions
    I did the per 36 math and you were still wrong. And to think Russell was 2-3 years younger than Clarkson.

  • The point I was trying to make, had you followed the conversation, (which you never do) is that cj has a pattern of over-exaggerating about things and using stats to make his argument when in fact, the stats say otherwise. Surely I can’t be the only one who sees this?

  • no im not per 36 as a rookie jc averaged more ppg shot a better % and had less turnovers then westbrook.
    hey were close in every other category.
    idc who was older im going by rookie season not age.

  • I’m scared about the way Randle attacks sometimes. I remember his injury. He needs to learn to let the game come to him in certain instances. Running like a guard during every fastbreak is scary. Rondo exposed Clarkson’s defensive ability. He’s not an elite guard yet if he can’t hang with Rondo all day. He did have his moments though. I am happy moving forward. I just get a spastic colon when Randle and Kobe are out there forcing things. Don’t get hurt people. I have tickets for their Dec 22 game in Denver. Have to see the Mamba one last time at least.

  • Hater here because if you honestly watched him you would know when he started he was averaging 15,5,6.

  • Now if we can get Russell in gear the trio will be the core of the new Lakers. He is the question mark at the moment.

    i dont hate on mad dog i respect him.
    the only 2 current players i have beef with is sacre and dangelo.
    1 doesnt do nothing, the other just talks about it but doesnt actually do anything really.
    im waiting for dangelo to bring it still and i hope he turns into the player he claims he will be.
    sacre i hope he gets traded or waived sooner than later.
    dangelo needs to work out with clarkson maybe Kobe or even Magic Johnson.
    get this kid moving guys! CMON

    this is what all fans should do show respect.
    Kobe a guy at the end of his career and Randle just coming into his own career.
    Both need to have a great season and avoid injuries.
    the thing about Clarkson though hes more of an offensive player like lou williams or nick young.
    these guys could train allday but they still wont be a naturally good defender.
    we should look into Anthony Brown or maybe J holmes if we keep him.
    i think we should dleague him until next year and use MWP 1 last time. not only to help mentor Julius but bring some leadership to the rookies. the more vets we have its always gonna help more not hurt more.

  • Clarkson is a big Combo guard. Any big guard will have difficulty guarding small and fast PGs. Especially on Pick n Rolls situations. One on One, i believe Clarkson can compete. Also, that’s Rondo, he’s not only fast, but he’s crafty. So overall, i believe JC did a descent job on him.

  • Nope. Not for now. Lakers needs to be aggressive early to build momentum. And JC is perfect for that pace. DAngelo is more like a half court offensive general. Slow but sure. So he needs to general the 2nd unit. He needs to setup Swaggy and Lou to run the offense.
