LOOK: Julius Randle receives special surprise after making it to All Star


The New York Knicks surprised Julius Randle with a heartwarming video, on the same day that the league announced that he was selected as an All Star.

During the game against Golden State Warriors, the Knicks showed a clip of Randle’s mom congratulating him for his recent All Star nod.

“I love you so much and I’m so proud of the son and teammate that you are,” Randle’s mom said.

Randle is currently averaging 23.2 points, 11.0 rebounds, and 5.5 assists per game, and is also leading the Knicks to a decent 15-17 record in the Eastern Conference.
