“Immanuel Quickley really must have played with a typo on the back”: NBA Twitter reacts as Knicks misspelled goalie’s name like “Qucikley” on shirt against Pistons
Immanuel Quickley must have played with a hilarious typo on the back, as the New York Knicks misspelled the 2sd Goalkeeper of the Year name as “Qucikley” on his jersey.
On Wednesday night, the Detroit Pistons hosted Julius Randle and his New York Knicks at the Little Caesars Arena. As expected, from the kick-off, it was the boys of Tom Thibodeau who were in charge of the match.
A contest that saw only 4 changes ahead and only 1 tie, ended with NYK winning the low scoring contest 94-85. It was a huge night for the Pistons duo of Saddiq Bey and Hamidou Diallo, combining 63 points, 22 rebounds and 7 assists while being responsible for 22 of the team’s 30 baskets. However, a stellar performance from the Knicks bench, led by Alec Burks’ 34-point exit, helped New York.

Burks received valuable help from 2sd-year of custody Emmanuel Quickley. The 6-foot-3 player had 18 points on a +27 super-efficient +/-. Over the course of the game, Quickley even went viral on social media. But not for any particular game or achievement. The 22-year-old had to play in a shirt with a misspelled name – “Qucikley”.
Here, look at him.

People joke that the Knicks jersey stitchers should use auto-correction, but they sew those names into Immanuelly.
