Julius Randle might not be in the NBA Playoffs right now, but he scored some major points with his fiancé on Mother’s Day.
While the SEC football programs send their well wishes to mothers on Twitter, the former Kentucky star had a plane fly over his house with a message to Kendra Shaw from their son, Kyden.
Randle played for the Wildcats for only one season (2013-14) before entering the NBA Draft, being selected as the seventh overall pick by the Los Angeles Lakers. During this past season, the third-year power forward averaged 13.2 points per game while grabbing 8.6 rebounds per outing.
He was part of a recruiting class that brought the likes of Marcus Lee, Andrew and Aaron Harrison, and Dakari Johnson to Lexington. Seemingly underachieving during the regular season, the Wildcats went on to play for the national championship, ultimately losing out to Connecticut 60-54.
While Randle (and son) went all out for Shaw, his former coach, John Calipari, took an easier route.
And to Ellen and my mother-in-law, Sue, #HappyMothersDay!

Come on, Coach Cal. You can’t let a former player outdo you by so much. Here’s hoping Ellen and Sue receive a massive gift on next year’s Mother’s Day.
