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 this year. One big reason for this dropoff is the...

Markelle Fultz's Shooting Form Diagnosed With Nerve Condition

Markelle Fultz's Shooting Form Diagnosed With Nerve Condition

Raymond Brothers, the agent of broken prospect Markelle Fultz, announced that the Philadelphia 76ers guard has been diagnosed with neurogenic thoracic outlet syndrome (TOS), according to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.

The Mayo Clinic characterizes this form of TOS disorder by the “compression of [a] network of nerves that come from your spinal cord and control muscle movements and sensation in...

Markelle Fultz Shooting Form Update: Legally Barred?

Markelle Fultz Shooting Form Update: Legally Barred?

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 like Fultz is at odds with the Sixers’ front office, and is...

Markelle Fultz Shooting Form Update: Shoulder Investigation Continues

Markelle Fultz Shooting Form Update: Shoulder Investigation Continues

One week ago, Markelle Fultz’s agent and attorney Raymond Brothers announced that the struggling Sixers guard would sit out a week of action to see a bunch of specialists in New York, who could presumably help with his interminable right shoulder injury. A sad update on the prognosis: The work continues.

Here’s ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski with some very bleak updates:

Markelle Fultz Is Still Struggling, But He Finally Made A Three

Markelle Fultz Is Still Struggling, But He Finally Made A Three

The Sixers didn’t really need Markelle Fultz to play well in tonight’s 127-108 blowout of the Bulls, which was good, because something’s clearly still affecting him. He finally made his first career three-pointer, though, and it made for a nice little moment. The Philly crowd celebrated like they’d traded for a protected 2020 first-round pick:

The Sixers guard needs to do more of that, and...

Markelle Fultz Is A Deranged Weirdo Who Doesn't Know How To Use His Limbs

Markelle Fultz Is A Deranged Weirdo Who Doesn't Know How To Use His Limbs

Philadelphia 76ers basketball forgetter Markelle Fultz fouled out in 19 minutes of dreadful action this morning in an exhibition game in Shenzhen, China, against a skeleton-crew Dallas Mavericks team without DeAndre Jordan, Harrison Barnes, and Dirk Nowitzki. He looked real bad! But somehow not nearly as bad as he comes off in this brief table tennis video:

Look at how he is holding...

Markelle Fultz Shooting Form Update: Indefinite Hiatus, But His Body-Fat Percentage Is "Very Good"

Markelle Fultz Shooting Form Update: Indefinite Hiatus, But His Body-Fat Percentage Is "Very Good"

Markelle Fultz, the former No. 1 pick banished from Philadelphia in favor of sunny and commercialized Central Florida, has had a quiet few months of rehabilitation. After Fultz finished up some shoulder work in California and crashed his new teammates’ party on the way to the playoffs, it seemed like he would maybe, possibly be on his way back toward the normalcy of being an NBA...

This Lengthy Markelle Fultz Update Is A Real Bummer

This Lengthy Markelle Fultz Update Is A Real Bummer

Markelle Fultz hasn’t played for the Sixers for almost a month, as he recovers from something called thoracic outlet syndrome and attempts to rebuild his broken confidence and broken jump shot. Teams are reportedly calling the Sixers with lowball offers, and now that he’s spending his second season the same way as his first—out with a mysterious and depressing injury—it’s an open question...

Markelle Fultz Shooting Form Update: Rehabbing With Donald And Goofy

In his introductory press conference after being traded from the Philadelphia 76ers to the Orlando Magic, way back on February 7, Markelle Fultz announced that his rehabilitation from chronic shoulder crabmeatitis would continue indefinitely in sunny California. The Magic were cool with this plan, evidently prioritizing the long view of Fultz’s development over whatever short-term gains...

Markelle Fultz Shooting Form Update: Disappearing Into The California Sunshine

Markelle Fultz Shooting Form Update: Disappearing Into The California Sunshine

Going from a No. 1 overall pick on a team with legitimate NBA Finals aspirations to one scrapping for the chance to get swept in the first round felt like just the right amount of pressure that Markelle Fultz’s flimsy shoulder could bear to hold. Unfortunately, a month after the trade that sent him from the Sixers (and Jimmy Butler’s scowls) to the Magic (and the sunshine of lowered...

Markelle Fultz Shooting Form Update: In Peace

Markelle Fultz Shooting Form Update: In Peace

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.

The Curse Of The 2017 Point Guard Class Is Coming For Dennis Smith Jr.

The Curse Of The 2017 Point Guard Class Is Coming For Dennis Smith Jr.

Among the reasons the Mavericks deserve credit for jumping up and grabbing Luka Dončić in the 2018 NBA Draft—beyond the most obvious one, which is that he kicks mondo ass—is the display of confidence and guts to draft a guy who at least superficially overlaps with a guy they drafted with the ninth pick just one year earlier. Dončić is taller and stronger and much, much slower than Dennis...

Sixers point guard Markelle Fultz’s shooting stroke doesn’t appear to be getting any better. Sure, he went 7-for-9 from the field on Saturday against the Grizzlies, but overall, he has refused to take a three-pointer in the month of November, and his eFG% is worst on the Sixers except for some guy named Jonah Bolden....

The Sixers could sure use some shooting. In Sunday’s jarringly one-sided loss to the Brooklyn Nets, Sixers starters combined to produce zero made three-pointers on just six total attempts. On the season, Philadelphia’s starting lineup has attempted just 18 total three-pointers in 53 minutes of court time, through 10...

It’s been a little more than a week since Markelle Fultz was activated to begin play for the first time since October, after months of working on rehabbing his busted shot. Entering tonight’s game against the Pistons, he’d shot 17-of-39 from the field since his return, but not one of those shot attempts had been a...

Markelle Fultz Smacked Heads With Joel Embiid And Sent Him To The Locker Room [Update]

Markelle Fultz Smacked Heads With Joel Embiid And Sent Him To The Locker Room [Update]

Sixers rookie Markelle Fultz is currently trying to transition from being an injured dude with a busted shot to an actual real-life basketball player, but it’s been a bumpy road, and it hit another hitch in the Philly game tonight.

While trying to execute a routine hand-off with Joel Embiid, Fultz accidentally smashed his head right into his teammate’s. Embiid went down grabbing his face...

Markelle Fultz Shooting Form Update: Never Mind, Shot Not Ready For Actual Game

After months of working on his completely broken shooting form—making it smoother , longer , better —Markelle Fultz was declared ready for game action and came off the bench tonight for the first time since October. Here’s how his six minutes of play in the first half went:

Not great! (The one make there was a layup; in the only four games that he played before tonight, his shooting...

Now Markelle Fultz Can Begin

Now Markelle Fultz Can Begin

He wasn’t a revelation. For that matter in many ways he was pretty clunky. A handful of times last night, in his first game action since October—since some mysterious combination of shoulder injury and Steve Blass disease took away his ability to perform basketball’s most fundamental act—Markelle Fultz seemed not to notice the activity directly in front of him, and served the ball pretty...

Markelle Fultz Shooting Form Update: Shot Ready For An Actual Game

Over the past month, Sixers first overall pick Markelle Fultz has improved his busted-ass shooting form, not only making his shot smoother but also longer . The culmination of all that hard work came today, when the team announced Fultz will play in tonight’s game against the Nuggets. Head coach Brett Brown was elated:

What a long, strange trip it’s been. May Fultz never try to shoot...
