Former Kentucky Wildcat and current New York Knicks star Julius Randle has been named NBA Player of the Month for April. Averaging 27.1 points, nine rebounds and over six assists, Randle led his team to an 11-4 record and became the first Knick to win the award since Carmelo Anthony back in 2014.
It’s just work.

Randle is also hearing his name in talks for both the Most Improve Player and Most Valuable Player awards. Coming off a couple of seasons where Randle was lost in the shuffle, he’s all of a sudden become the face of the Knicks and done so at a steady pace. His play has been remarkably consistent all season and a major push down the stretch (both statistically and his team winning) could catapult Randle in to a serious conversation for MVP, too.

With all-due respect to Christian Wood, this shouldn’t even be a debate.
https://t.co/wWGNmWnCY9’s updated MVP Ladder:
1) Nikola Jokic
2) Joel Embiid
3) Giannis Antetokounmpo
4) Chris Paul
5) Luka Doncic
6) Damian Lillard
7) Stephen Curry
8) Julius Randle
9) Rudy Gobert
10) Devin Booker

If Jokic tires out and Randle keeps fueling the fire, there’s a realistic case to be made for the former Wildcat.

The Packers aren’t actually trading the reigning MVP… right?
Mark your calendars… because this would be awesome.
Does he stay… or does he go?
The Jets needs all they can get.
The Southeast just hits different.
Something is going on behind closed doors.
Who ya got later on this summer?
Is the tank nearing empty?
