Biography

Elder brother to Desmond Macon (Siberian Tiger, F) by 13 months, Big Tig was one of the very few true down-low forces available in the 2009 FBA Draft. What made him more special is that unlike other defensively gifted bigs, the older Macon actually has a very promising offensive game to go along with his defensive excellence.

With a variety of low post moves, Macon can be pretty tough to defend. And of course, having been the leading rebounder in the FCAA, you know he got plenty of putbacks and dunks from offensive boards. He also is not at all what you would call slow-footed, as he has been known to run the floor on fast breaks (and often comes in first when running suicides in practice) and finish with authority. Maybe it is that extra quickness and agility that allows him to get off the floor for blocks so easily. It's almost like he fools players into thinking they're safe by remaining grounded as long as possible and then suddenly springing up for the swat.

However good he is on offense though, he's still got a lot of learning to do. He has a habit of not passing out of the post very well, so double-teams can often cause him to lose the ball. He also seems reluctant to be the go-to guy, as he more than happily deferred to his younger brother most of the time in college. Also, he can get down on himself easily and seems to be a little sensitive for a big guy, so some veteran leadership and some careful guidance and encouragement would probably do him some good.

Career

Donell was drafted after his brother in 2009 despite being rated higher than him. Traded in the middle of the 2009-2010 season from the Santa Ana Spectrums to the Bradford Bantams, and signed a 7-year contract extension with the relocated Bangor Tides.

In March of 2013, Donnell was traded to the San Jose Thrust along with Wendy Brown (Saber-toothed Tiger, G) for Silas Rand (Squirrel, G), Conrad Schaefer (German Shepherd, F) and Aristotle T. Zechariah (English Mastiff, C).

In August of 2014, Donell was reunited with his brother Desmond on the Williamsburg Minutemen in a three-way deal that sent Teo Masalia (Black Panther, G) to the Hawaii Kahunas and Quintessa Hartnett (Leopard, C) to the Thrust.
