It was just a few days ago that Julius Randle responded to being called soft by head coach Luke Walton, noting that it "pisses [him] off" being called that four-letter word.
Wednesday night against the Houston Rockets, this happened. If you're under the age of 10 I suggest you look away, because the chaos Randle unleashed upon a Clint Capela and Ryan Anderson is for mature audiences only:

How's that for soft? The new King of Iron Fist has been crowned, and his name is Randle.
Jokes aside, Randle had an absolutely dominant game against the Rockets, setting a new career-high and breaking 30 points for the first time in his career.
Someone get the Rockets a few masseuses and ice packs after clearly being unfit to handle Randle.
