A few weeks ago, the young star hosted her first annual 1% Better Camp in Philadelphia. The former first-round pick brought young basketball players together to train them for a day to help them improve their games.

After hosting his camp, Maxey participated in the Danny Rumph Classic game at LaSalle University. Unsurprisingly, Maxey was the star of the show as he recorded a double-double scoring 34 points and grabbing ten rebounds.

Earlier this week, Maxey made a public appearance at the Philadelphia Phillies game. Not only did he attend the game between the Phillies and the Cincinnati Reds, but he took part in a mid-game interview, discussing a wide range of highs, like teaming up with new additions to the Sixers and congratulating the base on Philly fans for kissing him off the jump.

After Maxey created a ton of buzz at Citizens Bank Park earlier in the week, the star goaltender was encouraged by Philadelphia’s MLS organization, the Philadelphia Union, to attend one of their games soon. Maxey was convinced he would be there this weekend.
