Someone was moving a little too fast trying to spell Quickley.
New York Knicks goaltender Immanuel Quickley likely had a word with the team’s equipment manager. On Wednesday night (December 29) at Little Caesars Arena, in his second game since clearing COVID-19 protocols from the NBA, Quickley fell victim to what Walt Clyde Frazier would call a dubious mistake. Eagle-eyed viewers immediately noticed that Quickley’s name had been massacred on the back of his jersey.
On Tuesday night, Quickley’s jersey was fine in the Knicks’ win over the Minnesota Timberwolves, so it’s a bit of a puzzle how that mistake slipped through the cracks. Shirt errors are not new to the world of sports, in fact they are quite common. Some Twitter users make the Knicks’ mistake by pointing out that other jersey spelling mistakes fail.
Qucikley, oops, we mean Quickley didn’t let his jersey affect his performance. His 18 points and two assists off the bench helped the Knicks pass a Pistons team decimated by COVID-19. The sophomore averages 10 points and 2.6 assists per game. Prior to entering league health and safety protocols, Quickley dropped a season-high 24 points while shooting 7-10 from the 3-point line against the Houston Rockets.
We’re just going to put the Knicks in the hot seat and spoil the Quickley name until the end of 2021. We’re all stumbling towards the finish line right now because this year is turning out to be another doozy.
