Maxi Kleber Spends Time at MAVS 

Returning from Germany after the hectic 2020-2021 season, one of the first things he did after returning was spending some time at MAVS Academy, Hoops Camps.

Kebler took part in activities like drills games and shared motivational words connected with his experience.

“Take interest and have fun,” Maxi Kebler told the kids.

He added, “Not stressing and playing for fun, working at the gym was something I liked doing. But as you grow up, scaling, dribbling, passing, shooting is also important.”

Queries by the Little Ones

One question from a kid,” Who is the toughest opponent you ever faced?” stunned him for a second.

Composing himself, he answered Kevin Durant, making the children awe.

The man was grateful to reminiscence his childhood memories and told that he could go the extra mile for the kids.

Staying for some more time, Kebler signed autographs for the kids.

Maxi, a Doppleganger of Luka Doncic?

Fans are often mistaken, with the Kebler and Luka Doncic overwhelming similarities.

Both play for the same team, and Kleber is a few inches taller than the rookie Doncic. Also, they have few familiar facial features.

In contrast, Dominic is a shooting guard representing the Slovenian national team.

Talking about an incident with Maveris coach about the time when fans waited outside the hotels to sign autographs and take pictures.

Maxi popped out, and he had to politely say that he wasn’t the person they were looking for. As the fans holistically screamed, ‘Great game, Luka.’

The crowd went madly like, ‘Luka, Luka.’

He also appealed, “People, they got to watch more carefully.”

Hilariously, his coach made Kleber a custom design hoodie, saying I am not with a picture Luka. But, of course, he has pictures posted on his Instagram account.

Maxi has also explained the whole scenario and his side of feeling on Twitter.

Well-known for his defensive abilities, he has shown the occasional flair for the dramatic offensive end.

Maxi Kleber | Personal Life 

Kebler was born to German parents. He supposedly has an older brother and shares a great love for him.

Coming from the same country as Dirk Nowitzki, now special adviser of the team, we assume that Dirk was the one who brought Kebler into the game.

Although, before NBA, Maxi and Dirk exchanged text messages but never had a great talk.

But, it is not the case here. The young Maxi grew up watching his brother play basketball. He used to watch the NBA games frequently with his brother.

And that series of gameplay and the brotherly love got him into basketball.
