The star of the New York Knicks Julius Randle received last night from the hands of his son the NBA Most Improved Player (MIP) award. The seventh-year interior took his game to another level this year with averages of 24.1 points, 10.2 rebounds and 6 assists per game, best marks in annotation and basket passes of his entire professional career.
Randle has led the Knicks up to fourth place in the Eastern Conference (41-31)Although his playoff start was marked by a loss to the Atlanta Hawks in the last gasp of the opening game.
The player, who began his career in the Lakers as number 7 of the 2014 Draft, has finally managed to meet the expectations placed on him and has become an unstoppable weapon from mid-range, also improving its threat from the line of three with 41.1% of success this course.
Randle’s magnificent season earned him a spot on the Atlanta All Star, his first participation in a weekend of the stars. In the ‘Most Improved Player’ vote, Randle clearly edged out Jerami Grant (Detroit Pistons) and Michael Porter Jr. (Denver Nuggets).
