Mitchell Robinson and Immanuel Quickley may be teammates, but the former wasn’t one to shy away from calling out Quickley’s foul baiting.
Mitch’s Block Party is a humorous interview-style talk show in which the Knicks center picks on his teammates, roasting them, and talking casually about basketball. Following the center’s injury, Robinson hadn’t been posting in a while.
However, it finally looks like the show is back. Who is the first guest set to be? Knicks rookie Immanuel Quickley. This could be a tough set for the rookie, because Mitchell Robinson gave a very humorous, very disrespectful imitation of Immanuel Quickley, but it looks like the rookie’s up for the challenge:

Mitchell Robinson Hilariously Mocks Immanuel Quickley As He Recovers From Injury
Mitchell Robinson and Immanuel Quickley are both important cogs of the Knicks team. However, Robinson’s injury proved to be the dooming factor in the end. Robinson fractured his foot in a March 27th game against the Milwaukee Bucks. He underwent surgery successfully, but the center was unable to log a single minute in the playoffs.
It proved to be costly as the Knicks lost some valuable rim protection. As a result, Clint Capela feasted inside, and the Knicks were heavily outmatched offensively and defensively.
However, Knicks fans will be happy to know that Robinson is on his way to making a smooth return. He posted pictures of himself working out and getting back in shape:

The Knicks will need him back if they are to make a run at the playoffs again, and this time be more successful with it. The Hawks trounced New York 4-1 as young stars Julius Randle and RJ Barrett struggled to find their groove. Having Robinson back would ease pressure off of them especially on the defensive end.
For now, it’ll be funny to see how Immanuel Quickley’s time on Mitch’s Block Party goes. After such a mocking impersonation, Quickley has a lot to prove, and show that he isn’t the foul baiting monster Robinson thinks he is.
