Julius Randle will make another All-NBA team

Randle ended last season with a career-high 25.1 points per game during the 77 games he played and started in.

“Those things don’t happen without the group of guys that we have,” Randle said in May, via Ian Begley of SNY. “It takes the belief of the front office, our coaching staff and most of all my teammates. They trust me to go out there and compete every night.”

Randle led the Knicks roster in points and rebounds per game during last year’s regular season. If he can continue to prove to be an important part of New York’s roster, he may pave the path towards another spot on an All-NBA team.

Brunson, who signed a four-year contract with New York in 2022, finished the 2022-23 season with career-highs in points and assists per game with 24 and 6.2 during his first season with the Knicks. The former second-round selection scored 40 points or more on four occasions last year, including in a 48-point performance during a 14-point win over the Cavaliers in March.
