Expectations were sky high for Julius Randle coming into the 2021-22 NBA season. He was coming off a stellar campaign in the prior year that saw him earn an All-Star nod, win Most Improved Player and lead the New York Knicks into the playoffs.

The hope was that he would take the next step and become a legitimate superstar.

Unfortunately, both Randle and the Knicks regressed. He saw drops in points, rebounds, assists and steals per game. In addition, both his field goal and three-point shooting percentages took a massive hit.

In the end, the Knicks missed the playoffs altogether.

After a disastrous 2021-22 run, talk began to intensify regarding a Randle trade. That made a bad situation worse, and he started turning into a legitimate locker room problem.

Fortunately, it appears all sides have agreed to turn over a new leaf. The Knicks no longer seem to be actively looking to trade Randle, and he appears to have re-committed to his conditioning.

Recent photos of the 27-year-old speak for themselves:

Randle seems to be putting in legit work this summer to better himself:

With social media being social media, the reactions to Randle’s work were largely what you would expect:

The coming season is going to be a big one for Randle. If he bounces back strong and plays like he did two seasons ago – last year’s collapse will become a distant memory.

Everyone loves a comeback story.

But if Randle struggles again in 2022-23 the way he did in 2021-22, expect to hear the trade chatter heat up once more.
