2015 NBA POST DRAFT Analysis : LA Lakers and Their 2nd Pick!
2nd Pick (LAL) D'angelo Russell
Yesterday June 25, 2015 a lot of Philly fans got a bit disappointed because they were expecting Russell to fall under their organization but LA Lakers had other plans. They made sure to get their hands first in drafting this young fella whose game is oozing with confidence and a stroke that is smooth already. Not only that his passing skill is a thing of beauty if it connects. With that said D'Angelo is no push over and when he was asked if he was ready to carry the burden as the next superstar, he was proud to say that he would love that. I know confidence is one thing but this kid isn't going to be a let down. The only concern is defense and knowing that Kobe will be there to mentor this kid, the only thing that's stopping him from reaching his potential is his discipline.
I am sure they are not done yet because the Lakers have $23 million dollars of cap space that they can use to get a couple of proven guys already. I am sure they are looking for a big man since they are already set in their back court. They already have Clarkson, Kobe, Lin and D'Angelo. They have "Swaggy P" and Wesley Johnson at SF. They have Boozer, Hill and Ed Davis. I can't wait as a fan am definitely excited.
I will now leave you with D'Angelo Russell's Interview, courtesy of Lakers Nation.
Here is a highlight of what he can bring in the NBA:
