    The funny thing is that Randle's biggest competition for MIP is probably his own teammate. RJ Barrett has made a huge leap this year, and his growth has as much to do with the Knicks winning as Randle's. Couldn't do it without both of them stepping up.

    If you watch the commentators in the beginning of the Knicks series. Randle should be the MVP. this team was not suppose to be good at all. he was not suppose to be good. He put that entire team on his back and delivered. not only making himself better but everybody around him. He should get the MVP and the MIP.

    Can someone help me? Been a knicks fan my whole life. Been slacking on watching the NBA the last couple of years. I remember Randle when he was drafted and the few years after. Explain to me how he's this good/smoooth. Has he shown signs like this? Is it baffling to others? Did it come out of nowhere?

    That music Rachel was dancing to kind of reminds me of Bourbon Street music. Do they have places in downtown NY city that play that classic music like in video?

    michael porter jr needs to be in the convo too


    Julius Randle did that Kobe Bryant crossover step back

  • MrWhatevaman

    Knicks fans yell MVP but we know Jokic is the fav. We say that cause hes our guy lol. Julius has def been a very valuable player for us and if MVP was a ranked list he would be 5/6 in the NBA. But its a single award and we know its Joker

    Out of all most improved players Randle is the most improved.

    • AlexandreG

      Lol we just gotta go back to last year or the year before to find 2 players that have improved more than him. Not many players in history improved more than Siakam in that year he won

    LeBron is not the best scorer in the NBA Or the best all-around player Or the best defensive player in the NBA and it’s been like that for a while now but as always lebron nutz are hanging from a lot of y’all mouth 💯 Really look at LeBron’s legacy and see what he had to do to win a championship. Never put him in the same class as Jordan or Kobe 💯 Lebron had 9 years on Cleveland Cavaliers to win a championship went to the finals once out of nine years and got swept by the spurs then went to Miami👀 to ride Wade wave Then came back to Cleveland traded everybody when he supposedly makes everybody better wins one championship now Arrived in L.A wins a ring but traded the young great talent we had because he don’t make people better 💯 There’s a lot more but I’m tired 💯

    Julius is prolly gonna finish 4th or 5th in MVP voting and then 100% he’s winning MIP.

    • Blake Hansen
      Blake Hansen

      Lol he gets mentioned more than anyone (Gobert/Paul/Booker/Mitchell) amongst the top two seeds in the league. The MVP should be joker but him getting mentioned above any of those guys (same with Thibbs for COTY) is downright ridiculous.

    • fiyaman4

      Well why would you give it to him?

  • Doomthinkingman

    Nvr understood why dudes wanna tell after a dunk. Who cares bruh? It's still two points. Brook has the right idea

    Rachel was wrong again. Broke did that gesture b/c the dude run him over and was about to hurt him. Watch the game ffs...

  • bloodofdepanta

    Yes, the answer is yes

  • Xavier Alanis
    Xavier Alanis

    I would say yes definitely, I remember when he was on my Lakers he was an ok player but he is now a completely different player and the fact that he is a big part of the Knicks success, says it all I would definitely give him that award.

  • KByrd80

    Randle doesn’t need this award.. He’s above it in my eyes and was a top 6 pick, he’s supposed to be this good!

    • bloodofdepanta

      @Ariyan literally NOBODY offered him a contract besides the Knicks. He is on record saying that. Know your facts before you start talking

    • Ariyan

      @bloodofdepanta no tf he wasn’t he just came off his best year with the pels lmao

    • bloodofdepanta

      What? He was on his way out of the league by the time he got the Knicks. He is the definition of most improved player

  • Gunnerxx1

    He doesn’t deserve it lol, has no one looked at his stats the last 2 years?

    I swear. Stephen A & Perkins are the only ones in ESPN that defends the Knicks

  • TyChaser

    idk why people are so surprised to see Marjanovic make a three. He has literally shown us the last 3-4 years that when he is open he can make a three

    Perk has gotten really good at his job. Respect

    • AlexandreG

      Right in a video where he shows he's dumb saying Randle should be in MVP conversation because that "are players doing just as good as Jokic if not better" Well, then I guess Boban should be in the MVP conversation too, because, you know, there are players doing just as good as Jokic if not better 😅

      Perk's media career is bout as good as his playing career... Even if it lasts a while, he isn't any good.
