Many had expected the Lakers to take the center out of Duke - Jahlil Okafor who was widely seen as a perfect fit for the franchise.
However that proved not to be the case as LA threw the NBA a curve ball by instead drafting Ohio State point guard D'Angelo Russell.
While Okafor was seen as a perfect prospect for the Lakers, Russell will still fit in well in LA and he has already been given the nod of approval by the Lakers higher ups.
"We felt (Russell), at No. 2, was a player we couldn't pass up." Lakers general manager Mitch Kupchak on drafting Russell
The pick by the Lakers truly did shock everyone including a group of LA fans who were at the team facility and let out a collective gasp of surprise when the pick was announced.
Also surprised by the decision was Russell himself.
"I didn't know at all, man. I'm still in shock." - Russell when asked if he knew the Lakers were going to pick him.
Russell may not have known who was going to pick him, but he was certainly grateful to the franchise after it was announced.
The Lakers have made a big statement by drafting Russell with the second overall pick but cold their off-season business just be about to liven up?
LA are one of the teams being linked with Kevin Love of the Cleveland Cavaliers - who it has recently been reported that he is going to opt out of the final year of his contract with the team.
If Love is to join the Lakers in the off-season, their run of disappointing seasons could come to an end in 2015.
