Scouting report
Pippen also joins current Golden State Warriors stars Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson in giving their support for the Kings, after the pair shared their own videos earlier in the series. Again, Curry and Thompson may be diehard Kings fans, but they are also former teammates of Andrew Bogut – part of the team’s ownership group – as well as current Kings import Ian Clark, both of whom were part of the Warriors’ championship dynasty from 2015-2017. Others who have shared their support for the Kings include former Kings players who are now in the NBA – Didi Louzada and Jae’Sean Tate – as well as former Kings coach Will Weaver, former NBA lottery pick Thon Maker, Sydney Swans player Jake Lloyd, and Super Netball team the NSW Swifts.
Maker’s goal with Long Island is simple: Like any other G League player, he’s working towards an NBA call-up, but says he is present and in the moment with his current team. “I’m not one foot in one foot out. I want to focus on where I’m at right then and there. And whether there’s attacking each day, practice, each game, shoot-around, or whatever it is, I’m just locked in, and then the chips will fall wherever they fall. But I’m here 100%.” Teammates in Long Island describe Maker as “very likable,” someone who has been dying to take the team out for dinner since he arrived. “That’s just the kind of guy Thon is,” Brown says. (For the record, the team couldn’t make dinner work while out in Lakeland, but went out to Hibachi during a road trip in Chicago. Eventually, things worked out.)
“For me, my mentality every day is to get better, just attack each day to get better, whether it’s getting shots up [or] working on my body,” he told NetsDaily. “I’m a person that can put pride aside, put egos aside and just find ways to get better.” “Getting back to being myself, flowing within the game, not thinking too much, just playing the game,” he added. “The biggest goal would be to have an identity that I know. [That way, if] a team hits me up, I can say, ‘okay, this is what you’re going to get out of Thon Maker,’ right. That’s what I’m building over here, and the coaching staff knows it and they’re helping me through it.”
