Therese Maxi has been everything and most fans of the Philadelphia 76ers could hope for in his two seasons in the NBA. His infectious energy, impact on society, and impressive play on the court were nothing short of extraordinary. The 21-year-old raised expectations as his third season approached, as he moved up the rankings and became an important part of the Sixers’ offensive.
Maxey has dealt with everything that has been thrown at him so far in his NBA career and will look to do the same this season. The Kentucky producer has reinforced his message of confidence in the work he is doing at his bootcamp this year. Doc Rivers and the Sixers made it clear to ask Maxey to Relax with his training habits Fearing him at times exaggerate it. The young goalkeeper is especially known for his early morning exercises.
When asked about the origin of these early morning habits, Maxi goes back to his pre-NBA days of youth. as such put it:
“I think that kind of started the year 10th grade in high school, in the summer. I remember working with Rod Clark, who’s now in Tennessee, I’ve worked with him a few times. He did this thing called breakfast club. He gathered a group of men together; One of my best friends, Chris, who is now going to Oklahoma,” Maxi explained where his early morning habit originated from.
“We’d get up early in the morning, and go there. ‘Early’ was like 7. One day, we spent the night at his house. And he’d say, ‘Man, let’s go to work at 4:30 in the morning.'” He woke us up. We were all Asleep there. He woke us up and got in there and worked at 4:30-4:45 a.m. Since then, I’ve felt like, I mean, when I got to Kentucky, I was kind of organized. breakfast club With my teammates. I felt like the best feature. I’m just trying to get out there and do whatever it takes, man. Whatever it takes to be the best I can do to help the team I’m in.” Austin Creel of Lines Drawn.
This habit carried over into his career as Maxi was seen in the bright gym and early on on numerous occasions. Embodies his motto You get one percent better every day The results were clearly shown in his play.
What’s next for Maxi?
It’s hard to predict what’s next for the third-year goalkeeper because of the massive leap forward last season. After getting limited opportunities as a rookie, Maxi Average 17.5 points, 4.3 assists and 3.2 rebounds per game last year. He also delivered 42.7% of his three-point attempts which was the third best across the entire NBA.
Maxey was thrown into the spotlight during Ben Simmons’ detention and took advantage of the opportunity. He now plays a vital role in the Sixers trio of Maxey, Embiid and Harden. While his 6’2-inch frame suggests he should be a primary guard, Maxey is more natural when looking at his shot creation. After Harden arrived in Philadelphia, see his recorded numbers a plus 16.9 to 18.7 points per game. With a full season of Harden taking over primary playmaking responsibilities, hope will be to continue developing Maxey’s record.
Expectations are certainly high for “The Franchise” but he has shown plenty of evidence that he can live up to those expectations. If one thing is for sure, Maxi will be sure to be ready when the opportunity arises.
