During their rookie photo shoot today, the NBA held an AMA (Ask Me Anything) on the website Reddit. For those unfamiliar with the site, it’s essentially a large forum with many smaller, more dedicated forums (subreddits). An AMA is essentially a Q&A session with users, often done by celebrities and athletes.
In this case, the NBA created an account and fielded questions for the crop of free agents. Lakers rookie Julius Randle was one of those answering questions, and provided a couple entertaining answers. We’ll list the questions and his answers below, with links to each one.
