I don't get this board's dislike for Randle. Like nearly every NBA player, he has his flaws. But he does things that no one else on the roster is able to do, except for Ayton, who is able but not willing.
Randle spends most of his time on offense lurking around the perimeter and clanking open looks. He is not a very efficient scorer. On defense he just kinda stinks.
The magical 2020-21 season for Julius Randle and the New York Knicks feels like ages ago at this point. He's fallen back down to earth.
One might try to convince themselves that last year was a fluke and he will return to the numbers from his breakout season, but for the rest of his career he's been a bad shooter, 2021 looks like the fluke. Afterwards he got his big contract and he returned to the "meh" player he was previously.
