Former NBA player criticizes Knicks’ Julius Randle for kissing wife after playoff game

The New York Knicks kept their season going with a Game 5 victory over the Miami Heat on Wednesday night, bringing it into Game 6.

After winning, Julius Randle discovered his wife Kendra and the couple exchanged a kiss. A former NBA player didn’t like the postgame celebration.

Kenyon Martin, whose son plays for the Houston Rockets, said he was “disturbed” by Randle’s meeting with his wife shortly after the clock struck zero.

“We just finished a hard-fought game in the playoff series, but first [Randle does] Are you going to kiss his wife? is that the first thing to do? where is your heart When the game was over, the first thing he did was, oh my god,” Martin said on Gilbert Arena’s podcast “Gill’s Arena.”

Martin, along with several others, joined a panel to discuss the hatred Randle receives from Knicks fans despite being named to the All-NBA Third Team. With Randall not being well received by the fans (and perhaps even by his teammates), Arenas knew he was going where he felt Randall was his only support.

Randle’s 6-year-old son, Kaiden, has also been spotted courtside at Knicks games, and the two are regularly spotted together.


Randle and the Knicks will once again try to survive for Game 6 in Miami on Friday night.
