Recently a fan asked, “What are your unpopular Star Wars opinions?” They elaborated that opinions about liking or disliking the sequels don't count. Here are the top-voted responses.

The Knicks‘ reported willingness to trade Immanuel Quickley is related to their long-term goal of making a deal for a star, explains Fred Katz of The Athletic. New York’s front office may believe that a first-round pick from another team is more valuable in a potential trade than Quickley, who will be eligible for a rookie-scale extension next summer.

Quickley has been part of the team’s rotation since his rookie season, and his game has evolved. Katz notes that he was originally relied on for instant offense off the bench, but his efficiency has declined and he’s now shooting a career-worst 30.9% on three-pointers. However, Quickley’s defense has gotten better, he pushes the pace in transition and is relentless in pursuing loose balls. He has value to the organization, but management may not want to pay whatever he can get in an extension or in restricted free agency.

Katz points out that Jalen Brunson, Julius Randle, Mitchell Robinson, RJ Barrett, and Quentin Grimes will earn a combined $97M in the 2024/25 season, which would be the first year of an extension for Quickley or Obi Toppin. If they both sign for roughly the mid-level exception, the Knicks will have about $120M tied up for seven players. Assuming a salary cap of $140M, the team would have limited resources to complete its roster, without considering new deals for Cam Reddish, Isaiah Hartenstein, and Jericho Sims.
