Incredible story of a tiny talented high school baller who had a few scholarship offers to small colleges but things happened in Maberry’s life that knocked him off track. So he bounced around from place to place in Michigan and started playing basketball just for fun. A short time later he ended up with a warehouse job and he stopped playing ball all together for about one year. Once he laced up his shoes for the first time in about a year was when everything changed.
“I jumped, and it just felt different — I could tell,” Maberry remembers. “Everyone was looking at me, like, ‘What have you been doing, dude?’ But the answer was nothing. I’d just been working every day.”
He soon won his first organized dunk contest in Michigan, then he tweeted the video to Team Flight Brothers where they have many professional live dunking shows. Within days he woke up to a million views and a few weeks later it reached to 1.6 million views. Maberry’s recognition is growing as we speak. He finds it hilarious when he is thousands of miles away from home and people still recognize him.
