Julius Randle gives back to Earl Monroe's school: 'New York is home for me'

By Ryan Chichester,


Julius Randle has been a consistent contributor to the Earl Monroe New Renaissance Basketball School in the Bronx, pledging a $500 donation to the school started by the former Knicks legend for every 3-pointer Randle knocks down.

Those $500 dollar donations have added up in a resurgent season for Randle, who showed up and presented a check for $880,000 to students in attendance on Tuesday.

The school helps students with the game of basketball, while also helping with potential career paths within the sport outside of a playing career. For Randle, it is a chance to give back to a franchise legend and the city he now calls home.

“New York is just a community,” Randle said. “New York is home for me.
It's a place that I've established as home. My family is comfortable. I want to be a part of the city and give back, show the city love, and to specifically do it with earl, who is a legend to the game and to the Knicks, its amazing.

“Any way I can help and give back to the city, I’m willing to do.”
