Julius Randle: 'I Want to Retire a New York Knick'

The New York Knicks have themselves some loyal talent as star forward Julius Randle admitted recently he wants to retire as a Knick. Randle confirmed his wishes on The Victory podcast and brought music to the ears of Knicks fans worldwide.

Randle is enjoying himself a stellar season and has become one of the bright spots across the entire NBA. He's helped put the Knicks back on the map and is on his way to winning the NBA's most improved player award. There's an outside chance he gets named All-NBA as he should certainly be in the discussions. Randle is averaging 24 ppg while shooting 42% from deep and pulling down over 10 boards per game.

Randle is under contract next season so Knicks fans can expect to see him around MSG for at least next season, but after that he wants the team to take care of business. Randle is set to make $19.8 million next season and the crazy part is only $4 million of it is guaranteed. Talk about coming a long way. According to NBC's Dan Feldman, the Knicks are open to signing Randle and are expected to get a deal done this summer.

Concrete jungle where dreams are made of. Julius Randle knows this.
