Markelle Fultz’s Broken Jump Shot

Markelle Fultz's broken hop given hit a record-breaking low when he twofold gripped a free toss that — you gotten it — turned out poorly. The manner in which he shot the ball off an all-inclusive interruption took after a player who grew 18 inches medium-term and is simply making sense of how to play b-ball in another body.


The dominant Joel Embiid had his ninth 30-point game of the season, posting 35 points and 18 rebounds; after breaking his nose and suffering a facial laceration Tuesday, a masked Mike Muscala returned to action; Furkan Korkmaz scored a career-high 16 points and looks like he may be able to provide the shooting the Sixers need off the bench.

Markelle Fultz’s second free throw with 6:09 left in the second quarter does not fall into that positive category.

Fultz has taken a number of ugly shots since being taken No. 1 in the 2017 NBA Draft, but this is his worst try to date.

It was so bad that it sent social media into a spiral. HoopsHype’s Alex Kennedy reported within minutes of the abominable free throw that trainer Drew Hanlen and Fultz weren’t on speaking terms and were no longer working together. (Hanlen seemed to deny the report).

After the game, Fultz gave his own reason for the shot, saying, “I mean, the ball slipped out of my hand, so I had to do what I had to do,” according to ESPN’s Tim Bontemps. “But I’m not really worried about it. I work on my game. The ball just happened to slip. That’s what happened.”

Hmm.

Going into his second NBA season, we’ve heard every reason on Earth for Fultz’s sudden inability to shoot a basketball.
