Newly-signed Nigel Hayes was a huge Kobe Bryant fan and he recounted the time he met the Lakers legend while he was still playing at Wisconsin: "It actually helped me have a better appreciation for the role that I have as a leader... He actually was very simple. I said, ‘Kobe, I love you. I really do. I'm working hard to be half as good as you.' All he said was, ‘Keep working and you will.' Simple. But a lot of people skip over that working part. I just wanted to make sure I continue to do what I do. I got up extra shots here. Whatever you gotta do. It's the little things that people skip over that make the big difference."

Julius Randle says he has spoken multiple times to Luke Walton about being the team's enforcer and bringing physicality, especially when the opponent is being physical and the Lakers need someone to push back. "He just says the effect it has on our team, so you kind of take that personal and run with it," Randle said. "It is part of a leadership position, it is good that guys kind of look after you, the energy and what you bring to the court and kind of follow that. It's cool."
