The beverage that Lakers second-year forward Julius Randle has endorsed likely would not meet the approval of the team’s training staff. Avoiding such consumption also helped Randle lose about 20 pounds while rehabbing his surgically repaired right leg during his rookie season.

But Randle recently partnered with Mountain Dew that will include posing for promotional materials and making future promotional appearances on behalf of the soda company. As seen below, Randle also starred in a behind-the-scenes video of his photo shoot with Mountain Dew before the 2015-16 NBA season started.
