The New York Knicks looked poised to make a deep postseason run, but that wasn’t the case after all.

Injuries and exhaustion eventually took a toll on them, and the Indiana Pacers also deserve plenty of credit for how they dealt with them in the final two games.

It was already evident that the Knicks needed someone else besides Jalen Brunson to carry the load for them offensively.

And while Donte DiVincenzo did an outstanding job in the final game and is more than capable of knocking down shots, he’s not a legitimate or consistent No. 2.

With that in mind, ESPN pundit Stephen A. Smith asked Kevin Garnett whether he thought the Knicks should pursue another star scorer in the offseason.

That’s why Garnett took offense at those comments and ranted about why they would even consider doing that if they already had Julius Randle.

The former NBA champion stated that even though Randle isn’t a perfect player, he’s already bought into the Knicks’ grit-and-grind style of play, not to mention the fact that he can score the basketball.

Garnett claimed that Randle has expanded his game by adding the three-ball, and his ability to make plays for others is also underrated.

Randle has always been a bit of a polarizing player, and it is a fact that he’s not a good defender and the Knicks looked slightly better without him in the regular season.

Still, it’s also true that you need someone else to get you buckets consistently in the playoffs, and Randle being out there could’ve changed the entire outcome of their season.
