Pretty much sums it up.

... But it's not hard to be better at everything, when Porzingis is really only good at two things.

Randle being a better three point shooter than Kristaps is comedy at it's finest.

KP isnt a great 2nd option as someone above said. He is an elite 3rd option. Dallas needs to find that #2 and with KP being paid like a #1 its going to be hard. But if he can accept a 3rd option role (Debatable with his personality), and Dallas can find a true #2, that team can win a chip sooner than later.
Randle did a lot of this 2 years ago in New Orleans. The big jump he's made this year is in his shooting. In New Orleans (and I'd assume in LA) he really did not have a mid range game. He could spot up, but he didn't have the fluid shot he has this year. It makes a huge difference in how guard the guy. He's not on their level but it's what makes Harden, Luka, Dame, etc so deadly. Teams can't just fall back if Randle drives now, and it makes his other positives on offense (spin moves, drop steps, etc) much more effective. Also, it doesn't hurt to have a solid team that fits his game.

I don't see his shooting being a fluke year.

I think he now is who he is now.

Julius' assist rate is 26.7% this season on 28.8% usage. He hasn't topped 16% the past 3 years, despite his usage being 27.6%, 27.8% & 25.3% those seasons. His shooting has unquestionably helped open things up...especially as the season has gone on & he's gotten more confident in his stroke...but his decision-making is on an entirely new level as well. It is now surprising when Julius makes a bad decision with the ball, even though he's seeing regular double-teams.

His strength has always surprised me. He'd bounce anyone off of him even if they were centers.

I'll say it right here right now.. this Knicks team is garbage benefitting from a garbage regular season and they won't win a round in the playoffs.

Bump this ladies.

How is there a garbage winning streak? As if winning teams don’t benefit off the misfortune of other teams all the time... I’m disappointed. From lurking for a long time he was a great poster way back in the day.

What are those two things?

Randle shoots a better 3 point percentage and KP has been below average at that this season.
Id guess the other good thing is his shot blocking? I remember earlier on in the season a lot of Mavs fans were saying he was often lost defensively and to me shotblocking is the most overrated stat in the league. Randle isn't a shotblocker, but he's one of the best defensive players on one of the best defensive teams in the league, so that has to mean something.
Go Knicks!

His post doesn’t even really make sense either. Like of course you win games when your opponents miss shots, turn the ball over, and play poorly.
