Markelle Fultz Shooting Form Update: In Peace

Giri Nathan Feb 08, 2019. 14 comments

Honestly, yes, let this poor soul go figure out his whole deal someplace warm, somewhere nobody’s watching the basketball, where there are no point guards and no Jimmy Butlers.

That’s a pathetic return for a first-overall pick in the abstract, but a respectable haul for this particular tortured one.

Tupac-Obsessed Iowa Public Servant Resigns In Mystery Tupac-Obsessed Iowa Public Servant Resigns In Mystery

The Iowa Department for Human Services provides services to the poor, children, senior citizens, and people with mental illness, addictions, or disabilities. Jerry Foxhoven, a retired law professor, was appointed to head up the agency in 2017, and until he was ousted last month, he added another directive to that long list: spreading the good word of Tupac Shakur.According...

Back in 2005, Shaquille O’Neal thought no coach would ever match what Phil Jackson did with the Lakers between 2000 to 2004: guide a team to the Finals four out of five years. “It will never be done again,” Shaq said, promising to kiss the cheese-covered feet of any person that did it, on a TV show that was...

Russell Westbrook Considers Russell Westbrook Russell Westbrook Considers Russell Westbrook

Russell Westbrook is headed for a summer of reckoning. Three straight triple-double seasons have been followed by three straight first-round playoff exits. This latest 4-1 defeat by the Blazers did not show many signs of progress, and, thanks to Damian Lillard, even cast his weaknesses in starker relief. Westbrook’s jumper has rarely looked worse; he shot a catastrophic 36...

How Long Can The Sixers Experiment With Markelle Fultz? How Long Can The Sixers Experiment With Markelle Fultz?

The Philadelphia 76ers are now 4-4 after last night’s 129-112 loss to the Toronto Raptors, which counts as something of a disappointing start for a team that roared through the second half of last season to finish 52-30. Last year’s Sixers finished the season with the fourth-best net rating in the league, but they’ve tumbled to 16th so far...

De’Aaron Fox scored the bulk of his team-leading 20 points against the Magic Monday night by simply grabbing the ball away from his man and running down to his hoop for layups on the break. He does this all the time , and his considerable athletic advantage over D.J. Augustin was such that he didn’t really need to do...

The writing was on the wall for the end of Jimmy Butler’s tenure with the Philadelphia 76ers when Tobias Harris agreed to a five-year, $180 million max contract with the team just one hour into the start of free agency.

The last thing the sad and strange Markelle Fultz saga needed was whatever the hell this is, per David Aldridge: Raymond Brothers is Fultz’s agent in general, so it’s kind of weird that he’s being referred to as the player’s attorney here, but at this point, every possible aspect of this situation is weird. It sure makes it seem...

Joel Embiid was listed as probable headed into Game 2 of the Eastern Conference semifinal series between the 76ers and Raptors, with a case of gastroenteritis. It’s a stomach virus, and is experienced as a lot of stomach pain and diarrhea, which is definitely not the condition you want to be in while playing basketball on national television. Apart...

The 76ers lost by a point to the lowly Bulls Wednesday night, 108–107, in Chicago. Whatever. The Sixers have performed admirably during this suddenly indefinite stretch of games without Joel Embiid, and the Bulls are much better now than they were before the trade deadline, and the Sixers were on the second leg of a back-to-back. Point is, it’s...

Ben Simmons Keeps Dunking On Jazz Fans Over His Rookie Of The Year Win Ben Simmons Keeps Dunking On Jazz Fans Over His Rookie Of The Year Win

Ben Simmons might not be able to shoot basketballs into hoops with any sort of consistency, but the Sixers point guard can still make life a living hell for his opponents. Just ask the hostile Utah crowd that attended Thursday night’s Sixers-Jazz game, which spent the majority of the game booing Simmons, only for the big Australian to brick...

The freshly beefed-up Philadelphia 76ers faced a reeling and miserable Boston Celtics team in Philly last night, and thus had the opportunity to put a signature win on their increasingly hated rivals. Instead, they got beat 112-109 (despite the Celtics not having Kyrie Irving on the floor), and Joel Embiid was frustrated about how the game turned out. He...
