Julius Randle was heavily booed as the starting lineups were being announced on Wednesday evening for the New York Knicks.

It's been a tough year for Randle as his play has dropped and he's had some run-ins with some fans.

Back in January, he was booed off the court after the Knicks lost to the Spurs and he only had two points during that contest. He also flashed a "thumbs down" to Knick fans after he made a layup against the Celtics a couple of games before that one.

The NBA world doesn't like how Randle continues to get booed as the season is close to being over.

Randle is averaging 20 points per game this season but is coming off a dreadful performance on Monday. He finished with only five points against the Bulls and played over half the game (28 minutes).

The Knicks are currently 34-42 this season, which is good for 11th in the Eastern Conference. They're currently in action against the Charlotte Hornets.
