�That�s probably the best thing any of these guys can say. They�re willing to work out with us and teach us,�Immanuel Quickley speaking to Ian Begely of SNY.com.
Additionally, Immanuel Quickley plans to work on various aspects of his offensive game with Kevin Durant. Chiefly, his mid-range game and his pull-up jumpers. Both of which Kevin Durant excelled at consistently in his NBA career. Additionally, the importance of the mid-range jumper in the NBA playoffs proved itself this year. With Chris Paul, the aforementioned Kevin Durant, alongside Devin Booker leaning heavily on the mid-range. If Quickley also develops this skill, he will have a long wonderful career ahead of him.
Immanuel Quickley’s rookie season positively surprised a lot of NBA fans. Despite his little amount of hype before the NBA draft, Quickley turned out to be a stud. Finishing his maiden campaign as a fan favorite in New York City, he additionally made the All-Rookie second team. Unfortunately, despite his success, the playoffs weren’t as fruitful for the New York Knicks. Thoroughly losing to Trae Young and the Atlanta Hawks in five games in the first round.
However, The New York Knicks’ future is instantly brighter than it was last year. With the lack of success in New York becoming a recurring meme in recent years. The 2020-2021 NBA season is nothing but a huge success for New York. Quickley’s growth, alongside development from RJ Barrett, Obi Toppin, and others, make New York an attractive destination for the first time in years.
