So does this make Smart and/or Randle expendable? Two hot heads in the backcourt.

Boston gets Smart so we can hope Rondo becomes available.

Randle. lets now go into free agency and get Bledsoe or Lowry

I think Bledsoe would be a great pickup. My only concern with him is his health. Actually, both of those point guards have health concern.

The one thing about randle is that he has become extremely underrated, throughout the whole year he was getting some consideration as the top pick due to his dominance and he slides to us a 7. That's amazing. I wanted smart because he is going to play both ends of the court at a high level but I can't complain with having one of the 5 best prospects at 7.

Melo was also in that list. Beasley as well but lets be real, that guy is a stoner. I can't wait to see Randle play!

yeap. Beasley have talent but he's a pot head and his attitude screw him over. It'll be interesting to see how randle play. I was curious to see if lakers will go after love after picking randle.

Did you see his interview on lakernation after his first workout? They asked him how he ranked himself against the other draft picks and who he though might be better than him. He told them that he didn't take a back seat to nobody and he should be the number one pick. Love this guy's attitude. No wonder he gets the zbo comparisons.

I'm thinking Randle is going to Boston for Rondo.

Randle is going to be another Jordan Hill, just not as reckless. That's all you're getting from him, quote me on this.

Randle has a well rounded offensive game, so if he is going to be jordan hill with offense everyone should be ecstatic. Hill averaged 9 and 7 in 20 minutes btw, imagine what he would do if he had Randles talent on offense.

I think it could be Thad Young and Elfrid Payton for Randle.

2-year plan:

PG Marshall / Farmar

SG Kobe / Meeks

SF Melo / Johnson

PF Randle / Kelly

C M. Gasol / Sacre

or

PG Lowry / Marshall

SG Kobe / Meeks

SF Ariza / Johnson

PF Randle / Kelly

C M. Gasol / Sacre

Of all the rookies in this draft, I think Randle has the best mindset to coincide with Kobe. I think Randle will be a 10 and 10 guy his rookie year or close to it.

There are still some good pg prospects left, let's see if we can buy the clips pick and maybe get either jordan clarkson or samaj christon both guys are combo guards who can really score and project to be good to great defenders.

I agree. He'll be solid as a rookie. Hopefully he can develop into an all-star type of player if not even better.

Apparently they weren't big on Smart and had him ranked behind Randle and Payton. So even if he was available the lakers wouldn't have taken him anyways.

maybe i'm wrong but doesn't randle and love have basically the same height and weight and wingspan? I know love is a better shooter but randle is stronger.

I'm just curious who you would of selected based off the options we had, that you guaranteeing wouldn't be a flop? Any player in this draft can be a flop, probably over half of the top 20 will be a flop that's how the NBA draft works. However I believe we got the best available player at the 7th spot.

Man are you an insider? You hit the nail on the head with your post. The Lakers chosing Jordan Clarkson added a very good tall, with longer wingspan then Randle point guard. Well done guy!

I agree...the Lakers hit a home run getting this kid at 7. Really really lucky...IMO his game translated better to the pro game then it did at Kentucky.
