Expert Opinions
Jeff Goodman (ESPN) – “His body, his shoulders are so big. You know it, but it’s different when you see it in person. There’s just not much you can do about him. He’s so strong and so quick off the floor. He goes hard. He’s a man.” Jonathan Givony (DraftExpress) – “Outstanding athlete in terms of fluidity, agility and explosiveness. Great first step. Tremendous ball-handler for size. Excellent body control. Rare combination of finesse and power.” Tom Izzo (Michigan State University HC) “He’s got a little Chris Webber in him. He gritted his teeth, was nasty, and he wanted to put them on his shoulders.” Chad Ford (ESPN) “Super athletic power forward, can score both with back to the basket and as a face-up forward, elite rebounder, explosive leaper, NBA body.” Nbadraft.net – “Considered by many to be the top player in the 2013 class. Very good finisher around the basket.”

- Due to Julius Randle’s unique style of play and his extreme athleticism, he will be just as valuable and marketable as other power forwards in the NBA like Kevin Love, Blake Griffin, Anthony Davis, and Chris Bosh. - This years draft class is projected to be one of the best in the history of the NBA. Endorsement deals are expected to be more lucrative than ever for rookies with reports coming out about the possibility of $160-180 million for a top pick. Granted the marketing value of similar players in the NBA, we expect Julius to receive a deal in the range of $100 million. - Throughout knowledgeable basketball circles, it is widely believed that Julius Randle will be an impact player in the NBA for many years with the potential of being a superstar. We believe he is the type of player who will have his own signature shoe on the market and can be the face of a large brand for the duration of his NBA career.
