INSTAGRAM: Julius Randle Shares Childhood Photo In Kobe Bryant Jersey
On Tuesday night, the Los Angeles Lakers selected Kentucky’s Julius Randle with the seventh overall pick in the 2014 NBA Draft. After being selected, the new Laker posted a childhood photo of himself in a Kobe Bryant jersey on his personal Instagram account:
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.
