To borrow a line from the movie “Mean Girls” Thon Maker is the “fetch” of NBA prospects — people need to stop trying to make it happen. Once upon a time, Maker was supposed to be a freak show prospect with unlimited upside. That upside tantalized the Milwaukee Bucks to pick Maker with the 10th pick in the 2016 NBA Draft.
But seasons later, Maker still runs around the court like he has no idea what he’s doing. Coupled with the controversy around the idea that he’s actually much older than his birth certificate would indicate, and it’s not going so well for Maker to date.
