The Los Angeles Lakers selected D'Angelo Russell out of Ohio State with the No. 2 pick in the 2015 NBA Draft, and the incoming rookie has decided on what number he'll be wearing. Welcome the newest No. 1 to the Lakers:

A history of players who've worn this number for Los Angeles, you ask? There's Smush Parker and Javaris Crittenton. Jordan Farmar and Darius Morris might be another pair of No. 1's you may recall. Suffice to say, there's a fairly good chance D'Angelo Russell becomes the best player to wear the number.
And now, we wait to see that jersey in action.
