Immanuel Quickley shouts out Kentucky fans after another big performance for the New York Knicks
Immanuel Quickley was a first-round pick in the 2020 NBA Draft, going to the New York Knicks at No. 25 overall.
Now, he’s off to a hot start in the pros. On Monday night, he scored 16 points off the bench in only 19 minutes. He went 6-for-6 from the free-throw line and also made 2 of his 3 3-point attempts.
After the game, he gave a shoutout to Kentucky fans, explaining why he’s not nervous early in his NBA career because of the fans he played in front of at Kentucky:

“I went to the University of Kentucky,” he says. “We played in front of 30,000 every night.”
Can Quickley continue playing well for the Knicks? They’re 4-3 overall and have been a pleasant surprise this year.
