WATCH: Tyrese Maxey Breaks Down Film with ESPN

What do the Kentucky Wildcats watch on film? You rarely get to know specifics of what happens behind closed doors. That’s what makes this video with ESPN so intriguing.

ESPN’s Mike Schmitz spends years scouting basketball prospects before they enter the NBA Draft. Instead if simply talking about Maxey’s style of play over some game footage, he spoke with Maxey for more than 30 minutes as they watched some of the Wildcat’s tape from the first two months of the season.

What really makes this must-watch TV is that Schmitz does not shy away from criticizing Maxey. His words aren’t harsh, just honest feedback that one might receive from a coach. Take a look for yourself to see where Maxey excels and what he must improve.

    I liked the way he handled Maxey, like you said Nick, he was honest but not harsh. Thanks so sharing that.

    Very honest evaluation, and very well done. Both the scout and Maxey believe he is at least an average, to above average, catch and shoot shooter, but a tendency to pass up open shots. Also driving downhill when the defender goes under ball screens gets him in trouble. Aspiring young players would do well and watch this, IMO.
