by December 31, 2020
Julius Randle of the New York Knicks

The New York Knicks have leaned heavily on 2019 offseason addition Julius Randle so far this season and the 26-year-old has responded with elite production across the board.

Alec Burks has filled the stat sheet in his first taste of action with the squad, adding to the leap he took with the Golden State Warriors last season, while R.J. Barrett continues to make incremental gains.
