Lakers fans, however, are less impatient and took to Wikipedia to show which prospects they would want on the team next season. On the website, in which anyone can edit an entry, Karl-Anthony Towns and D’Angelo Russell’s pages were altered by listing them as members of the Lakers, as Lakers fan Gavy Verdison pointed out:

Towns is considered one of the best center prospects in the draft alongside Jahill Okafor and is expected to be taken with one of the first two overall picks. Mainly known for his defense, athleticism, and general upside, he helped take Kentucky into the 2015 Final Four.

As for Russell, he has the capability to play both guard positions and seems like the third best prospect behind Towns and Okafor. In his lone season at Ohio State, he led his school into the NCAA Tournament where they fell to Arizona in the third round.
