Sixers’ Tyrese Maxey Talks Goals as Rookie Season Winds Down

Fan Nation


Article Summary:

This year has been anything but typical for NBA players, but Philadelphia 76ers rookie Tyrese Maxey wouldn’t really know the difference.

After a tremendous season in the NCAA, Maxey decided to gamble on himself and declare for the 2020 NBA Draft instead of taking on another year running Kentucky’s offense.

“It’s been crazy,” Maxey said in regards to his first year in the NBA. “Everybody asks how different it is in normal times, but it’s our first year as rookies, so that’s all we know as normal. So, it’s been great to me. I really enjoyed the experience.”

With two games left on the regular-season schedule, Maxey will begin to wrap up his rookie year on Sunday against the Orlando Magic. “Paying attention to a lot of details of our team and what we’re trying to do and what the other team is trying to do and trying to take them out of what they’re trying to do. That’s the biggest thing for me right now.”

Throughout the year, Maxey’s been in and out of Philly’s rotation.
