LOVE OF HIS LIFE
While he was in college, Randle was invited to a birthday party and from the moment he saw the blonde birthday girl he was in love with her. After getting to know each other a little more, he was convinced that this was his girl.
Kendra Randle, 24, is a Kentucky girl raised by a single mother. She was turning 20 when a classmate from the University of Kentucky brought Randle to her party. In a polite and courteous young man, he caught her attention and after several dates, they were a couple.
COMMITMENT AND WEDDING
After dating for a while, Julius invited his then-girlfriend on a vacation. The destination he chose was the destination Kendra dreamed of all her life, Greece.
Before ending his stay, the NBA star planned a special situation to get on one knee and ask the question, to which Kendra very confidently and happily answered yes. The wedding was celebrated surrounded by friends and family in a place on the seashore.
FAMILY AT LAST

STUMBLING AT THE START
Julius' first season as a professional basketball player began and ended in 14 minutes. During the opening game that he entered from the beginning, the player broke his leg, missing the entire season.
His mother and fiancée were by his side during the difficult recovery and helped him maintain his faith and hope to return as an even better player. The NBA star made a low-key return but enough to ensure a good spot.
