Hopefully, somewhere down the line, Julius Randle will be able to add to the Lakers’ amazing collection of championship trophies.
However, for now, he’ll just have to admire the achievements of previous Laker teams, and that’s exactly what the 19-year-old did earlier this week.
Randle and his girlfriend Kendra Shaw had lunch with Lakers president Jeanie Buss, according to Shaw’s Instagram account. Kurt Rambis’ wife Linda, who has been involved in the Lakers’ organization for years, was also at the meeting.
And, seeing as Jeanie’s office houses a pretty nice collection of championship trophies, Julius and Kendra decided to take a photo while standing in front of the shiny Larry O’Briens.
“What a perfect lunch,” Shaw wrote on her Instagram page. “Thank you [Jeanie Buss] and Linda Rambis for having us.”
As seen in the photo above, Randle is still in a walking boot while he recovers from a fractured right leg – the injury occurred on the opening night of the season. Randle is expected to miss the remainder of the 2014-15 campaign.
