Yes in a city that has Kyrie Irving, James Harden, and Kevin Durant, Julius Randle stands above them all as the best player in New York. Randle has been playing at an All-Star level this season, clearly being the Knicks go to number one option in a refined role this year, he is not putting to much pressure on himself and is facilitating and assisting at a high level while not playing the ‘selfish bully ball’ that he played with last season.
Julius is averaging 22.4 ppg, 11 rpg, and 5.6 apg. Tonight he finished with 44 its, 9 rebs, and 5 asts in a 123-112 win against the Atlanta Hawks.
This brings up the question if Julius Randle can go through this big of a transformation how bad of a head coach was that bum David Fizdale? Julius easily was the most hated Knick last season and he is probably the most beloved now. This Knicks team is really fun and it has to do with the excellent play of Julius Randle this season. I don’t know how far this Knicks team will go but they definitely play like a playoff team and Randle should be talked about a lot more than he is! Julius for MVP? Who says no?
