Julius Randle and the New York Knicks are catching a lot of slander right now. Of course, this is due to their second-round exit at the hands of the Miami Heat. Overall, fans would have liked to have seen better from Randle, especially in Game 6. Stephen A. Smith was so mad at Julius Randle that he begged for the man to be traded. However, it seems like the biggest Randle criticism is coming from Kenyon Martin. This came during an episode of Gilbert Arenas' YouTube show, where Martin was upset about Randle's post-game celebration after the fifth match in the Heat series.
Essentially, Julius Randle helped the Knicks win and then immediately went and kissed his wife Kendra. For some reason, Kenyon Martin was appalled by this. He claimed that his partner was the last thing he thought about during games. Moreover, he would rather be celebrating with his guys as opposed to his wife. Overall, it was an unnecessary rant as Julius Randle's marriage really has nothing to do with anything. That said, Kendra opted to respond to the story on social media.
Julius Randle Supported By Wide Kendra
"Slow news day I guess. Both of us grew up in single parent homes. We never saw our dads respect our mothers. I’m so grateful my kids get to grow up watching their dad be the best father and husband," Randle explained. "By the way that game was after a win. He would never be in the mood to kiss or even talk after a loss lol. But talk about real issues. Not a husband and father loving his family." Clearly, Kendra and Julius Randle will continue this ritual, whether he is playing in New York or abroad.
