I latched onto this guy as my top pick about a week or so ago, I'm thrilled. I wasn't sure about him months ago, but I'd been sold recently for where we had to pick. I think he's going to be a hard worker for us, a good rebounder, and a versatile scorer.

Solid pick at #7. He'll be an above average starter as a minimum. 3-4 time allstar best case. Most likely case he is a quality starter for a long time and average 17 and 10 in his prime.

I'm afraid his size and reach will limit his ceiling as a player, i.e. he's not going to go over you to get to the rim ala Blake Griffin, but his motor is strong and he'll put in the work to reach his potential. He's got skills in the painted area and he'll get to the line. His defense needs work and he has to develop a shot because he does not have one. At his size and for his position, he will need a mid-range game if he's going to reach his potential.

Did you guys notice how we turned in our pick with about 1 minute left? We knew who we wanted. And oh yeah, I got the guy I ALWAYS wanted so I am so happy. I can't wait to see this guy on opening day.

I'm telling you all, this kid is going to be a stud. He's not perfect, but his work ethic is going to rub off on just about the whole team. Kobe is going to absolutely love him. If you don't like this kid, you haven't watched him enough.

I know people were stuck on Smart, but this kid is going to bring the same attitude from the PF position. This was a GREAT pick.

Mike Trudell ‏@LakersReporter 12m

Randle on Kobe: "He may get tired of me, because I'm going to be bugging him."


Mike Trudell ‏@LakersReporter 12m

Randle on his mindset: "I demand a lot from my teammates as well. I think I bring a lot to L.A."


Love the attitude

Matt Moore CBS ‏@MattMooreCBS 7m

Lakers: Julius Randle: A+: The guy Kobe would want in terms of attitude. A bull inside with great character and touch at the rim.

I could not be happier, thought for sure Boston would take him, we'd end up with Smart who I hate this high. Randle might not be a superstar, but he will be a star/all-star and I fantastic #2. Great start so far, can't believe he fell into our laps.

I don't homer too much but I'm pretty bias here, I love the guy. :bow:

Just a heads up if you wanna see more Randle, don't know if the interview is old or new

@LakersReporter: We interviewed Julius Randle for the @TWCSportsNet draft show that starts in a few minutes. Seemed truly thrilled to be a Laker.


Also, positive info

@LakersReporter: One thing the Lakers were really impressed with during Randle's workout: his shot was better than advertised. Comfortable w/a face-up J.

Los Angeles Lakers ‏@Lakers 9m

.@J30_RANDLE: "I get to go play in a great city that expects championships. I couldn't be more excited."


Serena Winters ‏@SerenaWinters 14m

Kupchak says that what stood out to him about @J30_RANDLE ’s workout the most was his effort. “He’s got big time skills."


KEVIN DING ‏@KevinDing 14m

Kupchak said Lakers watched Randle over the course of the college season "as closely as anybody."

@janiscarr: In less than 15 minutes, @J30_Randle gained more than 12K followers. Sure to have more once he puts on that Lakers jersey


@LakersReporter: LAL's basketball guys who work out with the players raved to me about Randle. Super physical, plays angry, wants to be great.

@LakersReporter: Randle appears to be the kind of kid that Kobe's going to like. Hungry, aggressive, all business on the floor.

@LakersReporter: There's a stigma about Kobe being hard on young guys, but for what it's worth, the young guys in my years in LAL have loved Bryant.


@ramonashelburne: Lakers GM Mitch Kupchak says of Julius Randle: "We had him on our board much better than number 7 & were surprised when he was there"

@ramonashelburne: Kupchak on Randle: "He's a player that will bode well in Los Angeles. Competes hard. Plays hard. Loves contact. Great kid"

@ramonashelburne: Kupchak on Randle's foot injury: "we didn't feel it was something that was career threatening. We felt comfortable moving ahead."

@ramonashelburne: Randle had a issue with the 5th metatarsal, but has been asymptomatic. If he reinjured it, he'd miss time. But it's a common NBA injury
