Julius Randle responds to Enes Kanter’s unflattering Zion comparison
Enes Kanter has never been afraid to be outspoken, and he stirred some things up with a somewhat unflattering Zion Williamson comparison.
Appearing on Wednesday’s edition of The Herd with Colin Cowherd, Kanter said he was unconvinced by Williamson, calling him “Julius Randle with hops.”

Randle had something to say about the comparison — and it’s a pretty good burn.
Yo @EnesKanter last time you guarded me I had 45 relax bro lol

Randle did, in fact, drop 45 points on 20-of-34 shooting for the New Orleans Pelicans in a 122-110 loss to Portland on March 15. Kanter played 20 minutes in that game and Randle played 42, but the point stands.
Kanter loves to troll. He may end up being way wrong about Williamson, but we got a pretty good tweet out of the comparison.
