    He is a sophomore in high school. Wow.

    Obligatory shoutout to the Texans shirt at 4:40!

    Headline writers are rejoicing:

    MEET YOUR MAKER!

    Church ball-level defense being played there. My favorite is the guy in the post who sees him driving at the 1:48 mark.

    If he can gain weight he can become the NEXT Olajuwon not Joel Embiid...

    Thon Maker is about to show the world he's on Hakeem Olajuwon's level?

    He's like when you make a player it 2k with maxed stats.

    Wait, don't see any highlights of his post game.. and weren't there vids of Drummond running the break too.

    Looks like a slower, less explosive Kevin Garnett.

    Interesting. It's not elite athleticism but he's definitely fluid and has skills. Nothing back to the basket though.

    I'm not that impressed. He is way too skinny to play on the block and his small forward skills are just average. I doubt if he will ever be a starter in the nba, or drafted.

    Don't think he's all that great.
    No core strength at all when you look at how he plays the game.
    Maybe he can round himself out, gain a couple of pounds and become a taller Amare lite
