Julius Randle is adding another accolade after a breakthrough season.
Randle was named second team All-NBA by the league on Tuesday.
Randle joins Damian Lillard, Chris Paul, Joel Embiid, and LeBron James on the All-NBA second team. Pretty good company if you ask me.
In his seventh season, Randle put together his best season in the league, averaging career-bests in points (24.1), rebounds (10.2), assists (6.0), steals (1.0), minutes (37.6), 3-point percentage (41.1) and free throw percentage (81.1).
He also put together 41 double-doubles and 6 triple-doubles over the course of the season.
He joins Anthony Davis (2015, 2017, 2018, 2020), Karl-Anthony Towns (2018), John Wall (2017), and DeMarcus Cousins (2016) as former Wildcats under John Calipari to be named All-NBA.
Most Improved Player and Second Team All-NBA. Not a bad season for the former Wildcat.

Would be pretty cool if Kentucky had a player named Omaha.
Will the Cats offer too?
A great time to build their draft stock.
An annual tradition it seems.
Needs to be a big year for Jordan Wright and JJ Weaver.
KD came through in the clutch.
All for not being named All-NBA.
That good in Vegas, huh?
