Interesting Article on Thon Maker and His Journey

check out this article on Thon Maker: Refugees escaping war are aiming for the stars

To me as a Duke fan this article raises more questions than it answers but as most do I want the best for the young man, unfortunately navigating the waters from foreign to U.S. soil in the world of sports can get murky. I hope that Edward Smith is doing the best for Thon and that everything is and stays on the up and up. He is a unique talent but hopefully, eventually something will be done for the families of these kids as well, and hopefully when a kid and his welfare are signed over to someone it’s through good, bad and otherwise. Basketball doesn’t often pan out and it would be nice to know that Maker has individuals around him that are with him should it not.
