Departure Report: Immanuel Quickley writes farewell letter to New York.

  1. In the latest issue of the Players’ Tribune, Immanuel Quickley wrote a letter titled “Goodbye New York.
    ” He was recently traded to the Toronto Raptors, but he’s clearly reflecting on the left-field trade and the emotional impact of parting ways with the New York Knicks.
    These words hit home: ing….
    In other words, there were no rumors or anything.
    I woke up from a road trip nap in a random hotel room in Indiana when I received an email from my agent, Raymond Brothers, saying, “Call me.
    ” You will be traded.
    ” Directly, quickly, and without warning.
    Your heart sinks when you receive a text message like that.
    It didn’t even feel real.
    It was like I was in a dream or something.
    Before I could answer, the phone rang.
    This is the Knicks front office.
    But it wasn’t just anyone.
    It was one of my sons, World Wide Wes.
    I call him uncle.
    When he picked up the phone, he started crying.
    And just like that, my career with the New York Knicks ended.
    I knew it was real.
    He vividly remembers his early days with the Knicks, starting with the No.
    25 overall pick in the 2020 draft, and the humiliating experience that followed – lighting up Cleveland in a preseason game and becoming the starter the next day.
    Like when it was expected.
    Immanuel learned early on that there are no easy opportunities in the NBA.
    “We played in Portland and scored 31 points against Dame.
    Even for 25 minutes.
    ] That’s what I thought at that time.
    “Okay, if you keep working like this, you’ll definitely get better.
    ” I stopped treating every opportunity as a unique opportunity and just started playing.
    ” It was a good lesson for all of us.
    The feisty guard shares unforgettable moments and lessons he learned from his teammates, especially Julius Randle.
    What stands out about Randle is how much of an impact he has on the locker room, given his occasional outbursts (thumbs down), his on-court demeanor (slow closing), etc.
    This is because there is often speculation about whether to give Quickley said Julius is a positive role model and mentor to his younger teammates.
    Consider this: Julius meant a lot to me.
    I remember getting a text message from him the night I got traded.
    He said, “It doesn’t matter where you are.
    I get it, dude.
    We have everything you need.
    ‘ Considering all the craziness of the night, it was a real relief, but most of all, it meant something was coming from him.
    He was also like a brother to me.
    ]Sometimes everyone can do a gym just by looking at them, guaranteeing how they prepare, how they approach work, what their daily habits are.
    I’ll give it to you.
    How they train.
    Sometimes I would message him and ask him: How do you think before a game?
    ’ When you’re at your best, he knows what’s important, and he’s always willing to pass on that knowledge.
    That’s my guy and it’s always .
    Obviously, the city, fans, and team culture all have a lasting impact on I.Q.
    And he expresses his gratitude to everyone in his article.
    The business of professional sports is tough, loyalty is fleeting, and only a handful of players make it to the top for long.
    I recently told my girlfriend’s wife that it must be difficult for Ish Smith to maintain a healthy family life while bouncing between 13 different teams, but her wife said that I may have been ignored.
    In some cases, players may be seen as just a commodity and walk away from the trade.
