Thon Maker Issues Statement on FIBA Suspension


By now, most of us are familiar with the FIBA brawl involving Bucks center Thon Maker. In case you aren’t, here’s what happened a few weeks ago during a game between Australia and the Philippines:


This was a downright ugly brawl that simply should not happen in a 30-point blowout. Thon has been suspended for three FIBA games in result of the matter.

Thon issued a statement on Twitter Thursday afternoon, defending his role in the incident in addition to  disagreeing with the suspension.

There have been no fines or punishments handed out by the NBA.
