Julius Randle is now squarely among Knicks fans’ crosshairs after his latest argument with an assistant coach involving a confrontation.

The New York Knicks looked fated to give some tough competition to crosstown rival Brooklyn Nets for the near future. After all, they had a franchise player and All-Star performer in Julius Randle. And surrounding him is a ton of lottery pick talent and proven NBA veterans.

Kemba Walker and Evan Fournier were expected to bolster their backcourt ranks alongside RJ Barrett. But where the former Duke one-and-done prospect has flourished, the former have flattered to deceive.

The Knicks are now trying to thrust Barrett squarely into their primary ballhandler’s role. The Canadian is steadily getting more offensive responsibility, both as a scorer as well as a playmaker. Julius Randle, by contrast, is getting phased, and with good reason.

The former lottery pick has reverted to being the turnstile he was on defense on the Lakers. Julius Randle has also seemingly lost his effectiveness while shooting pull-up jumpers. His step-back jumper, which used to be a lethal weapon in his All-Star campaign, is now broken.

They were more forgiving of his defensive lapses and losses of focus when he was subdued. But getting in the face of his coach in such a manner is being deemed unacceptable on social media.
