Julius Randle of the New York Knicks wants his team to win big in the new season.
But that means he will have to work hard during the summer.
And it sounds like Randle is just straight-up exhausted from all that work.
He posted a humorous video on his Instagram, via ClutchPoints, attacking associate head coach Johnnie Bryant who was putting him through a tough workout.
“What this man do to me is criminal. They should put you in jail!” Randle said.

Although Randle definitely sounds wiped out from the exercise he’s done, fans are happy to see him so tired.
The two-time All-Star is one of the keys to great things for the Knicks in 2023-24.
Last season, Randle averaged 25.1 points, 10 rebounds and 4.1 assists.
It was a strong year for him and earned him his second All-Star appearance.
Back in 2020-21, Randle was playing some of the best basketball of his career.
Fans of the Knicks loved what they saw from the big man and he earned the Most Improved Player trophy.
But he hit a bit of a rough patch in 2021-22 and wasn’t playing with the same power and dominance.
Luckily, it appears as if that was just an off-year for Randle because he bounced back in a big way last season.
And it appears as if he is pushing himself to make sure he’s just as good this season.
A lot of talk around the Knicks has been about the addition of Jalen Brunson last season.
Brunson certainly brought a lot to the table and was a key part of the team’s success.
But Randle has been a solid fixture without the organization for years now and is also very important.
And he will be again in the months ahead.NEXT: Insider Explains How Knicks Can Become A Great Team
