Julius Randle went seventh overall to the Los Angeles Lakers earlier in tonight’s NBA Draft, and he may be getting the rare chance to play for his childhood team. In the waning moments of Throwback Thursday, Randle posted an Instagram picture of himself as a kid wearing a (backwards) Kobe Bryant jersey. Now, he’ll be playing alongside the Lakers great.
Oh y’all didn’t know I grew up a LAKER fan? http://t.co/Dsjx8zBknf

I’m sure Kobe doesn’t want to hear anything about this, he doesn’t seem to be one who likes to be reminded of his age.
