Heard about him a few days ago. Wtf man.

7'1" freak athlete with handles, an outside shot, and a post game. They need to make an exception to the 1 year of college bball requirement because Maker looks like he could start for a lot of NBA teams right now as a 16 year old (semi srs)

Handles look loose as fuk, obviously nice for 7'1" though

I see him advertised as a PG and I don't buy that shiet he'll end up a PF or center assuming he makes the nba

Ya being a pg would be idiotic, I imagine best case scenario he's like a KD/KG hybrid on offense, and plays the 5 on D. Which would not be fair.

If he really lives up to hype, I wonder how the NBA landscape would be by 2020.

Handles like that aren't going to be used so he can be a point guard. They are used to drive through big men who watch him on the perimeter.

No one should literally ever link a high school players mixtape. That is the absolute best this kid will ever look in his entire life most likely, and you set this ridiculously high standard that he can never live up to.

I still remember people claiming OJ Mayo was the next Jordan. When has ANYONE outside of LeBron lived up to his own hype.

He's also going against people not nearly as big or skilled. He will more than likely pan out to an extremely good pro, but keep it in perspective.
