Julius Randle’s wife Kendra has fired back at Kenyon Martin for criticizing the New York Knicks star for kissing her after his team was eliminated from the NBA playoffs by the Miami Heat.
Martin said on the Gil’s Arena podcast that he didn’t know where Randle’s “head was” because he seemed to be about to kiss his wife in the immediate aftermath of his season ending.
She took to Twitter and wrote, “slow news day I guess. We both grew up in single-parent homes. We never saw our fathers respect our mothers.
“I’m so thankful that my kids get to grow up seeing their daddy being the best dad and husband.”
She later added, “By the way, that game was after a win. He would never be in the mood to kiss or even talk after a loss lol. But talk about real problems. Not a husband and father who loves his family.’

Martin questioned Randle’s mindset on the podcast, suggesting the All-Star should have focused on partying with his teammates.
“We just finished playing a hard-fought game in a playoff series and everything [Randle does] are you going to kiss his wife. That’s the first thing you do?,’ Martin asked.
‘What are your thoughts on? The very first thing he did, dawg, when the game was over.
“I’m sitting there with my wife watching the game. I’m like, “I love you to death, but there’s no mention of that incident. I’m going to be with my guys. We just finished winning, I’m not even thinking about you.”
Randle’s team was eventually eliminated from the playoffs in Game 6 on Friday night by the Miami Heat – advancing to the Eastern Conference Finals.
