Video: Thon Maker drops Birdman with baseline stepback
Milwaukee Bucks rookie Thon Maker got the best of veteran Chris “Birdman” Andersen with a stepback move that left him tripping over his own feet as the 7-foot-1 Sudanese-Australian swished a baseline jumper.
The rookie center had only played 11 combined minutes the whole season prior to making a three-minute stint in the Bucks 118-101 victory against the Cleveland Cavaliers.
While the 38-year-old Andersen is indeed in the back end of his career, it’s never fashionable to get tripped up by someone taller.
Shall we say he met his Maker?
