Julius Randle Claps Back at Enes Kanter on Twitter After Backhanded Diss

Julius Randle trolled Enes Kanter after Kanter tried to diss him with a backhanded comparison between Randall and Pelicans rookie Zion Williamson.

Enes Kanter: "I kind of feel like Zion is overhyped. I think he's Julius Randle with hops. Some players are scared to say it but, I'm not scared to say anything. I'd let him shoot."

Free agent forward Julius Randle and outspoken NBA journeyman Enes Kanter got entangled on Twitter Wednesday because of a television segment Kanter did in studio on The Herd.

Kanter told host Colin Cowherd that he thought New Orleans Pelicans rookie Zion Williamson was ‘overhyped’ and then went on to say he’s ‘Julius Randle with hops’. The backhanded comparison drew the ire of Randle on Twitter, who obviously took offense to Kanter calling Zion overrated and then saying he's NBA ceiling was Randle.

Randle is a five-year veteran averaging 15.4 points and 8.9 rebounds for his career, while Zion is already a prospect most have confidently tabbed as a perennial All-Star and possibly even a Hall of Famer.

Randle responded by tweeting Kanter saying ‘Yo @EnesKanter last time you guarded me I had 45 relax bro lol’ referring to Randle’s 45-point, 11-rebound, and 6-assist game versus Kanter’s Blazers on March 16th, 2019.

Kanter quickly responded ‘I remember brother. That was the game ya’ll got the L’ as the Pelicans would lose the career-best performance from Randle to Portland 122-110.
