2. PF Julius Randle
Following a down season in 2021-22, Randle bounced back and arguably had his best season yet. Not only did Randle make the All-Star Game in Utah, but he also made his second All-NBA Team in three years.
Now, entering the 2023-24 season, Randle can make his third All-Star Game. He may not perform well in the playoffs, but there’s no doubt Randle is one of the best players in the league when it comes to the regular season.
While some fans may be hesitant to vote for him, we doubt players and coaches will deny him his right as an All-Star if he plays at a high level again.
Hopefully, Randle doesn’t continue the trend of having a great season by following it up with a disappointing season. If so, it could be a long season for him and Knicks fans. Let’s hope he’ll be named an All-Star in back-to-back seasons for the first time.
