#1 overall pick Markelle Fultz is teetering on bust status after a rookie year that has seen more viral clips of his mysteriously broken shot than highlights on the court, but there may still be hope.
A video has emerged from Sixers’ practice today of Fultz casually burying a backwards full-court heave, which somehow looks smoother than his stroke from the free throw line. Maybe this is the breakthrough Fultz needs to get rid of the yips. Probably not, but maybe.
Here’s video evidence of the Philly rook not being terrible at basketball. Still working to confirm it’s not a Powerade commercial shoot.
Watch the last thing anyone was expecting to see.
