Markelle Fultz’s Shot Still Looks Broken as Hell

In news that should deeply concern 76ers fans and excite LaVar Ball and Danny Ainge (probably), No. 1 overall pick Markelle Fultz still shoots like someone who has never shot a basketball before. Seriously. Sound the alarm bells, because the stud out of Washington appears to have lost his basketball powers and is looking like a bust.

Whether it’s this mysterious shoulder injury or not, Markelle’s out here pushing ugly threes at the rim. Your rec league teammates likely have better shooting forms than this guy:

Of course, everyone started worrying about Markelle again last week, when people saw the awkward shot make its return in London:

I don't get it, Markelle Fultz gets to the NBA and all of a sudden forgets how to shoot?

Markelle, who has already missed 35 games in his rookie season, has been practicing with the team recently, but it doesn’t sound like he’ll be back anytime soon:

Brett Brown was asked if Markelle Fultz needed to be 100 percent physically to return to the court. His immediate response: “I think what he needs to be is able to shoot a basketball.”
