SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – Former NBA veteran guard and known hater of the state of Utah, Vernon Maxwell took another jab at the Beehive State in a recent tweet.

The former NBA veteran sent out a tweet on Monday with a video of a bunch of basketball players shooting the ball in a gym and they were all air-balls. In the tweet, Maxwell stated that he was in Utah to do a free clinic and that the shooters in the video were the best that the state had to offer.

He sent out another tweet before the video after the Rockets beat the Jazz 126-117 at Vivint Smart Home Arena on Monday night without James Harden, Clint Capela and Russell Westbrook. Maxwell took the angle that many have said about the Jazz being the hottest team in the league.

Over the years, Maxwell has known to troll the state of Utah. The tweet that he pinned to the top of his page was back in 2017 with another jab to the state.

Fans on Twitter reacted to the video tweeted out by Maxwell, both Rockets and Jazz fans.

Maxwell spent 13 seasons in the NBA and played with 8 different teams. He played for the Houston Rockets for six seasons. Maxwell averaged 12.8 points, 2.6 rebounds, 3.4 assists and 1.1 steals per game, while shooting 39 percent from the field and 32 percent from the three point line.
