The 2014 NBA rookie photoshoot day has come and gone, and this year there were some pretty spectacular shots. Considering the Los Angeles Lakers have a high-profile name incoming like Julius Randle, there were pictures. Oh, there were pictures.

Randle looks pretty good soaring through the air. Hopefully we see more of this, particularly with the face he's making as he drops the hammer on unsuspecting defenders:

And another one, with a nice extension:

This next one is what we'll call the Ron Artest "Kobe passed me the ball!" face. Note: He's wearing Kobe 8's in the "What The" colorway through the entire shoot:

Which can only be topped by this expression here. Besides, we needed more shots of him in the home gold armor:

Alas, the seventh-overall pick has a serious side to him as well. Mamba approved, surely:
