Quickley left his last greeting for New York.
Immanuel Quickley of the Toronto Raptors recently contributed to the Players Tribune. Quickley expressed his feelings about leaving New York.
Quickley entered the NBA with the 25th overall pick of the 2020 NBA Rookie Draft. Since his debut season, he has established himself as one of New York’s key Sixmen, averaging 11.4 points and 2.0 assists with a 38.9% success rate 월카지노주소.
Recognized for his skill, Quickley increased his playing time in his third year of the season and often made his starting lineup. This season, he also led the bench lineup in New York with accurate 3-pointers.
But New York was looking higher. As a result, New York brought Toronto’s OG Anubi in exchange for Quickley and R.J. Barrett. Finally, Quickley had to leave his affectionate New York.
“Before the trade, I was taking a nap in a hotel room in Indiana. Then, I got a call from my agent that he had been traded. It felt unrealistic because I didn’t hear any rumors,” Quickley said.
“I got goosebumps on the plane back to New York that day. I watched New York’s game on the plane. I thought, ‘Did you forget it was the day I played?'” he added. “I still couldn’t believe I didn’t belong to this team.”
However, Quickley was a professional player. He is trying to forget about his regret and adapt himself to Toronto.
Quickley said, “I’m looking forward to living in Toronto. After joining the team, I have become friends with my players quickly. It hasn’t been long since we were together, but we are adapting. Veteran players especially welcomed me with open arms. Toronto is one of the best organizations in terms of bond.”
Quickley said goodbye to New York fans, mentioning his warmest memory ever. It was March 2023 against the Boston Celtics.
“I played through the second playoff and played for 55 minutes. I had 38 points, eight rebounds, and seven assists, and led my team to a victory. It is an unforgettable moment. I dunked in the middle of the second playoff by banking on the breakthrough. It was the most fun game I have played so far. I am sure New York fans will remember this game as well,” Quickley said.
