New Thon Maker Highlights

Thon Maker was recently ranked #1 by ESPN for his class. He looks as if he has bulked up and improved alot. Deng Adel of Waverley is also starting to make waves in the US. Here are some of the videos. If anybody ask, will he play for Australia...no one seems to have that answer but I feel that Australias future is bright if we get players like Maker, Simmons, Adel, Exum, Bolden to gel together. That is a high basketball IQ group that is long and athletic and could be brought along to as a future starting 5. Rumours have it Simmons is up to 6'10". Maker is 7ft, Adel is 6'7, Bolden is 6'8", and Exum is 6'6". All are highly skilled and 3 are definite NBA propects .

Future is bright for the next generation of Aussie ballers, put them together and you get an interesting acronym. B.E.A.M.S.

Very bright indeed...

Here's one for Deng Adel from the same John Lucas event. A lot of basketball scouts/commentators are talking about him going straight into the top 50, 100 prospects for the class of 2015. born 1996, same year as Simmons and Bolden.
