Julius Randle’s Rookie Photo Shoot: Kobe 8s, new-style Lakers jerseys, DJing and more


On Sunday, Julius Randle traveled to the Big Apple to take part in the NBA’s annual rookie photo shoot, and it definitely looks like he had a good time.

In between assisting in an impromptu dunk contest and dancing his with ex-Kentucky teammate James Young, Randle took part in some other fun activities such as DJing and writing “West Coast is the best coast” over a photo of himself:

Randle went through the day while wearing a pair of Nike’s Kobe 8 shoes. The colorway is called the “What The Kobe 8” – you can probably figure out why:
