Well-deserved.

He's the epitome of a Knick superstar. Can't jump over a phone book (minus young Ewing), but tough, physical with an unstoppable jumpshot.

But it's really his playmaking that's driving the success of this team. Going from Dubious Handles to Magic Randle in one year is simply incredible.

The conversation should really be whether any forward deserves to be ahead of him for first team All-NBA. If the Knicks get a top 6 seed, he should at the very least make the second team.

It might be the biggest individual turnaround that I've ever seen. Going from one of the worst coaches in NBA history to a proven, competent NBA coach has certainly helped. But Randle had to put in the work and change his approach. He did, and he deserves all the flowers.

I wanted him gone because I didn't think him and RJ could work but I'm gladly wrong about that. I'm aboard the Randle bandwagon

He took it upon himself to things around, with the help of the coach that mentored(?) him pre-NBA. Fan notions found in message boards dont affect NBA players that much. Every player owes it to themselves to play in a professional manner and level because their stocks depend on it.

A Kentucky player has led the Knicks back to prominence, never could have hoped for an outcome this great
