One New York Knicks star’s six-year-old son recently wrestled a kid on the basketball court. Interestingly, the same kid broke down in tears after his father lost his preseason game against the Indian Pacers a few months back. Fans will hardly be able to contain their laughter after knowing the reason behind the six-year-old wrestling with another kid on the hardwood.

The player whose son wrestled on the court is none other than the All-Star Julius Randle. Randle’s son, Kyden is one of his biggest supporters, apart from his massive crowd of fans. Lately, the little kid has stolen the spotlight with his wrestling manoeuvre on the hardwood.

Apart from being perhaps his father’s biggest supporter, Kyden plays basketball just like his father. Recently, a hilarious clip got viral on the internet where the fans could see the little kid wrestling with another kid on the hardwood.

In the clip, the fans could see the 28-year-old’s son continuously asking for the basketball on the hardwood but was unable to get his hands on it as his teammates ignored his calls. Following this incident, the six-year-old decided to wait no longer and take the matter into his own hands.

He walked in front of his teammates and snatched the ball from his own teammate. During this process, he also wrestled the kid to the ground. With this action, Randall Jr. gave everyone a good laugh in the hoops world.
