Julius Randle has always had the talent to do great things, even during his time before the New York Knicks. He was a good scorer before the season started, but so far, Julius Randle looks like he has improved to being an elite point forward. Randle is currently averaging 22.5 PPG, 11.3 RPG, and 6.0 APG, and is the best player on a surprisingly resilient New York Knicks team.

Recently, there has been some buzz about Julius Randle, and his improvement. That improvement could warrant an All-Star selection. Ian Begley of SNY recently reported the words of an NBA scout on Julius Randle. The scout gave Randle a lot of credit for his improvement.

The way he reacts to extra attention is like night and day. Last year, he was trying to attack it by himself. This year, the exact opposite ... Love the way he’s making reads and finding shooters. The shot selection is much better ... I know they love the shape he came (to training camp) in and it shows – especially on defense ... Credit to (Randle) for fixing what went wrong last season. Credit the Knicks and Thibodeau for putting him in the right spots ... The East is crowded, but he looks like an All-Star.

Julius Randle has made a huge jump since last season and is a huge reason for the New York Knicks' success at the beginning of the season. Julius Randle has good numbers and is leading his team well: there is no reason for Randle not to be an All-Star if the New York Knicks continue to be a playoff seed throughout the season. They are currently 8th in the Eastern Conference, and if the Knicks can just hang on, then New York might have themselves a new All-Star.
