Thon Maker, a lithe 18-year old who is 7-feet tall but possesses the crossover of a point guard, did this to one of his opponents Wednesday night in Las Vegas.
Remember when I said that Maker’s mix-tape reminded me of Kevin Durant, because so few people that tall and that nimble with the basketball are breathing on planet earth? It’s moves like this why I never took that comment back despite always-angry twitter jumping down my throat.
It’s a slight disappointment that Maker won’t be going to college this year. Eventually, he’s going to be must-see TV at Duke or Kentucky or wherever he goes.
