Why Is This Guy SHOOTING ONLY FLOATERS?!

What if I told you that there’s an NBA player that only shoots floaters. And he’s killing the opponents with it. Introducing Immanuel Quickley from the New York Knicks.
Let me show you why this dude is quickly becoming a Knicks fan favorite.
What up everybody my name is Stefan and this is Heat Check. Let’s get into it.
Guys check out this staggering statistic. Since ya boi had nothing better to do with his life, I went ahead and counted the floaters. Out of 77 made field goals so far this season, 34 are floaters.
I have never seen this type of ratio. That’s almost half of his total baskets.
Quickley is so natural with it to the point where he can hit them while running full speed like he does here, or fading to the side as you can see. And look at this:
He has his hands set to shoot a regular jumpshot, but at the last second he moves the left hand away just to be able to flick this.
Remember how the story with James Harden and the Rockets was only 3s and layups?
Well Quickley is shooting only 3s and floaters which is kinda funny to me.
I do like the way he gets to a position to shoot the floater in pick and roll situations.
As you can see right here, Immanuel does a great job of keeping his defender on his back, and then surveying the floor and seeing the opportunity, getting to his spot, and of course the shot.
At the moment Quickley is third among rookies in scoring with 12 and a half points per game, right behind Lamelo Ball and Anthony Edwards.
But the thing is that the Knicks guard is getting those points while having far less minutes on the court compared to the other guys on this list.
You know Tom Thibodeau has been notorious for this throughout his career. Not really liking to play younger guys and develop them, but rather trying to win with his veterans.
But even with the limited playing time, Quickley is able to leave an imprint on the games and is gaining the respect of even some of the best players in the league.
After the game against the Clippers, Paul George had a lot of positive comments about him.
And that’s one thing that everybody agrees on. Quickley is fearless. He is always in attack mode and not afraid of anyone. That provides a great spark for the Knicks offensively.
And speaking of the Knicks, after a surprisingly strong start, right now they are in the play-in tournament zone, close to a number 6 seed, but close to being 13 as well.
So as a long time suffering New York fan myself, I am glad that I can at least make a positive video about a young and promising player.
To all the young guys out there, practice your floater because as you can see, it can be a deadly weapon in your arsenal. And I’m gonna go do that right now. Subscribe and help ya boi get to 500 thousand we’re so close. Peace out.

  • You'd think he'd take one more step for layup or a step back for a mid range shot but he's catching people off-guard by taking floaters in between close and mid range. Man's underrated for a 25th pick.
