Instant reactions to Lakers selection of Julius Randle

Twitter is quite the place to be during any sporting event, and an event like the NBA Draft offers a chance to provide instant analysis. Moments after the pick was announced via Ramona Shelburne, Twitter erupted with reactions and their thoughts. Take a look down below!



Randle is a big man who is a Zach Randloph model in the post. With a bully-ball style, it’s almost a guarantee that he’ll have Kobe Bryant as a fan. The Lakers night may yet be over as they sought other first round picks in the past, but with extremely limited assets, it’ll be surprising to say the least if the Lakers find themselves back in the draft.

The best story to come from Randle, and one that will make Lakers fans happy, is that he skipped a workout with the Celtics for an interview with GQ magazine. The Kentucky product excelled in his workout with the Lakers and persuaded Lakers brass enough that he was worth the possible risk surrounding his foot.
