Knicks’ Julius Randle Calls Out Biased Refereeing In NBA (Video)

Knicks' Julius Randle Calls Out Biased Refereeing In NBA (Video)

The New York Knicks fell 112-110 to the Brooklyn Nets on Tuesday evening.

Knicks star Julius Randle had 24 points, 9 rebounds and 8 assists in the losing effort.

After the game, he called out NBA referees for what he perceives to be biased officiating.

Specifically, Randle was unhappy with the fact that he only received two foul shots for the entire game.

“I can’t be penalized for just being stronger than people, and that’s an answer I got today,” Randle complained. “They said because certain contact doesn’t affect like it affects other players because I’m stronger, they missed the calls.”

Randle is right to be upset over the explanation, though it’s unclear whether a specific ref was simply trying to placate him or what. If not, then it is definitely a bizarre rationale for not calling fouls, and one you’d think would impact more of the league’s big players down low.

With Tuesday’s loss New York fell to 12-11 on the year. Over the past week the team has been linked to a potentially blockbuster trade, and it will be interesting to see if this latest loss ultimately proves to be the catalyst to make that deal happen.
