From the NY Post:
Immanuel Quickley’s breakout season won’t include any individual hardware.
The Knicks’ super-sub lost out on Sixth Man of the Year honors to Celtics guard Malcolm Brogdon, it was announced on Thursday night.
Bobby Portis of the Bucks finished third.
Quickley enjoyed a fantastic season, averaging career highs of 14.9 points, 4.2 rebounds and 44.8 percent shooting from the field.
He also tallied 3.4 assists and only 1.2 turnovers despite his minutes — 28.9 a game — increasing.
They were similar to Brogdon’s numbers of 14.9 points, 4.2 rebounds, 3.7 assists and 48.4 percent shooting.
Brogdon also shot 44.4 percent from 3-point range, compared to Quickley’s 37.0.
The voting was close.
Brogdon won with a total of 408 votes, compared to 326 for Quickley.
What a dumb decision. And it all came down to IQ starting too much. So ridiculous.
