Is Julius Randle overrated?

Chad Ford's Top 100 | Big Board 5.0

1. What is a red flag for Kentucky's Julius Randle?

Kevin Pelton: For Julius Randle, one stat stands out above all others: steals. In 525 minutes this season, the Kentucky freshman has recorded just five steals. Five! And four of those have come in the past two weeks. It's difficult to understand how a player as talented as Randle could possibly not have more steals; it seems like he'd come up with a handful simply by accident.
