Corey Maggette and his stint in the NBA

A hyper-athletic wing player named Corey Maggette thrived on his ability to score, draw fouls, and ultimately get to the free throw line. During his career in the NBA, this would not only help him become a consistent scorer but also make him one of the most athletic guards in the game. The period that Maggette spent playing for the Clippers is what makes him most famous, where he would establish himself as a reliable scorer who loved to drive straight at the defense and finish at the foul line. From 2003 through 2010, Maggette averaged 19.5 points per game during his scoring heyday and also surpassed the 20-point average three times throughout that period.
