Lakers’ Julius Randle appears in Mountain Dew commercial

Julius Randle’s itinerary for NBA All-Star weekend did not exactly go as planned.

The Lakers’ second-year forward surprisingly did not make the cut for the Rising Stars Challenge despite leading his sophomore class in double doubles (21). But he at least made some impact during All-Star weekend by appearing in a Mountain Dew commercial to commemorate the event along with Chicago’s Jimmy Butler and Oklahoma City’s Russell Westbrook.

Randle landed an endorsement deal with the soda company earlier this year that include posing for promotional materials and making future promotional appearances.
