Los Angeles Lakers rookie Julius Randle had one of his better games of the preseason on Sunday night against the Utah Jazz. The 19-year old scored eight points, grabbed five rebounds and blocked two shots. There will likely be some growing pains for Randle throughout the season, but Kobe Bryant has not been afraid to put pressure on the former Kentucky star.

After Sunday’s 98-91 victory, Kobe was asked about the opportunity Randle has been presented with to learn from people like Bryant himself, Carlos Boozer, Steve Nash and Lakers coach Byron Scott. His response was classic Kobe.

“It means he can’t f— up,” Kobe said. “Seriously, if you f— this up you’re a really big idiot, you know what I mean? ESPN are idiots, but you’re a really big idiot if you manage to f— this up.”
