Before and during pre-draft workouts, Randle did not hide the fact that he is a huge Kobe and Lakers fan. With the Kentucky forward finally a Laker, he should be able to provide an immediate impact for the storied franchise as he is perhaps the most NBA-ready prospect.

And yes, we knew you grew up a Lakers fan. Welcome to Los Angeles, Julius Randle.
