Lakers Draft Rumors: Emmanuel Mudiay Declares Admiration For Kobe Bryant

The Los Angeles Lakers hold the No. 2 pick in the NBA Draft, and while they're expected to draft a big man, they are working out the top two point guard prospects - D'Angelo Russell and Emmanuel Mudiay.

After Mudiay's work out, he expressed his desire to play for the Lakers because of his admiration for Kobe Bryant:

"Kobe, I admire his determination," Mudiay said. "That’s what made me a fan of his. He’s got a dog in him and that’s kind of how I approach the game. You got to be a dog. I’d love to be a part of something like this. I just want to win and get as many championships I can. That’s the main thing."
