We all knew Julius Randle deserved to be an All-Star this year.

But there were some questions if he would make the cut.

Yesterday’s announcement came, and Randle was selected for his first All-Star game.

In New York, Randle is having the best season of his NBA career, leading the Knicks in scoring, rebounding, assists, minutes, and PER while the Knicks sit at 15-17, two wins away from matching their win total from two seasons ago.

That also has the Knicks in the playoff picture, as they are 7th in the Eastern Conference.

Randle is averaging 23 points per game along with 11 rebounds and 5.5 assists while shooting 48 percent from the floor, 41 percent from three, and 80.5 percent from the free throw line.

Randle joins James Harden, Jaylen Brown, Zach Lavine, Ben Simmons, Jayson Tatum, and Nikola Vucevic on the Eastern Conference Reserves.

Good for Julius Randle. He absolutely deserves this honor.

In addition, Los Angeles Lakers forward and former Wildcats star Anthony Davis is making his eighth consecutive appearance after also getting a reserve nod.
