It seems Julius Randle didn't appreciate taunting from a fan after a blowout loss against the Miami Heat the other day. According to 29-year-old real estate agent Dylan Rainey he was sitting behind the bench with his girlfriend, and soon after he realized the Knicks would lose the game started taunting Julius Randle.

"You get a $118 million contract and the fans get a thumbs down? Are you kidding me?'"

Randle was recently seen showing a thumbs down to the fans at MSG, which was pretty much a reference meaning "shut the f**k up".

Rainey said he soon found out a security guard was called by Randle right after his comments. On top of that, the arena personnel issued a written warning, which means his following misdemeanor would get him kicked out of the game. Soon after he continued criticizing Randle but without using any profanity saying he was -34 in terms of efficiency.

Getting kicked out from the game

"He' sitting right in front of me, I said, 'Hey, you know you're -34 right now, right?'" Rainey said. "Then he looked at me, was clearly trying to intimidate me, then he got security, and that was a wrap. "I didn't even do anything,"

Rainey said he was devasted because of the events at the game and is furious with players that don't care about the team and making the situation better. He even questioned his devotion to the team, where nobody cares about the fans.

"I'm hurt, man. I got home that night and I got really, really upset," Rainey said. "I felt really, really upset. I'm questioning like, 'Why do I do this? Why do I support a team and these players who don't care? They kicked me out of the game. Why do I devote my time and energy and emotion into something that doesn't about me at all?'"

Rainey concluded these things need to be addressed by the Knicks organization because it doesn't make sense to treat loyal fans like that. He thinks a player like Randle shouldn't have the power to do what he did, especially after he was presented as the next face of the franchise.

"This needs to be a message to the front office of the organization from a young fan of the Knicks, a loyal fan," Rainey said. "Incompetence and a disgraceful performance year after year is one thing, but then to have a fan like myself go and support the team and be a true loyalist, and then to have a player on my own team kick me out when he's on the road, that's unacceptable. That's unacceptable from somebody who is supposed to be the face of the franchise."
