Julius Randle and LeBron James are finally teammates.

The accolades keep coming for Randle as he was named to the All-NBA second team on Tuesday, joining James as the forwards on the squad.

Randle made his first All-Star berth this season, won the league’s most improved player award and even received four votes for second team all-defense.

His regular season was spectacular as he played in 71 of 72 games, becoming the first Knick to average at least 24 points, 10 rebounds and six assists in a season. He also shot 41.2 percent from 3-point range.

Randle, 26, is expected to be part of the U.S. Olympic training camp this summer. The Knicks will exercise the $20 million final year of his contract and look to see if they can work out an extension.

His first playoff appearance was a dud, however, as Randle shot just 29.8 percent in the five-game loss as Atlanta’s defense swarmed all over him. He still averaged 18 points and 11.6 rebounds in the first-round series.
