Los Angeles Lakers rookie Julius Randle was officially declared out for the season after he fractured his tibia in the Lakers home opener against the Houston Rockets in October.
This past weekend, Randle was seen walking around without crutches at the University of Kentucky, a sign to many that his rehabilitation is looking optimistic. Randle was participating in a few leg exercises after Lakers practice on Tuesday where he caught up with the media.
Randle discusses the progress he’s making coming back from a season-ending injury. Plus, Randle talks about what he’s been telling his friends when they ask him what it’s like to be in the NBA. Randle says one of the first questions people always ask him, of course, is about Kobe Bryant:
They were like does Kobe really spaz out? Is he really like that?”
