Sixers’ Doc Rivers Gets Emotional Over Tyrese Maxey’s Season

Former Kentucky standout Tyrese Maxey expected to be a lottery selection in the 2020 NBA Draft after his freshman season with the Wildcats.

But Maxey’s lack of experience and size shied teams away from him. The young guard slipped to the early 20s before the Philadelphia 76ers scooped him.

In tears on draft night, an emotional Maxey promised the Sixers and the city of Philadelphia that they wouldn’t regret welcoming him in.

Through his first two seasons, Maxey has stayed true to his word.
