Video: Adonis Thomas – Winner’s Mentality

Check out 6-6, 210-pound Adonis Thomas, arguably the top wing in the nation. The aptly named forward has the championship pedigree: He won a state championship last season as a junior and earned his second gold medal this summer in Germany at the U17 World Championship. While Thomas’ perimeter game needs polish, he’s an elite finisher and shot creator. Will this Memphis native become a hometown hero and stay in the M? Or will he take his talents to Knoxville to play for the Volunteers?

    I played with this man in a fall league. I say man because he’s obviously not a boy. Real Deal

    @Nastierthanu4: That was hilarious! Anyway, onto Adonis Thomas… It’s a good thing his uncle is Tim Thomas, they’ll be sure to work on that three point jumper of his.

    another one of those kid with a game polished ahead of his year. A Mike Gilchrist kinda player. You can tell he’s learned from the best, really smooth around the basket with both hands and everyone talks about what court vision he has. NBA ready

    Best part about it, the kid has one of the highest GPA’s at his school. His dad was a very good high school player from Hillcrest H.S. in Memphis so he got the genes honestly. He is a talented, very gifted athlete and can play the 1-5 in high school. Every level so far he has earned a championship starting with his AAU time. Very classy kid who is definitely a pro.

    that floater off post pivot is Durant-esque, very smooth.

    Tim Hardaway still to this day has the most copied move in basketball history.
