Fultz scored just five points on 2-of-7 shooting from the field and had three turnovers against the Celtics Tuesday night. ESPN’s Stephen A. Smith wasn’t impressed with what he saw:

“I’m just gonna say it like it is,” Smith said. “Markelle Fultz ain’t ready. He’s gotta be better. I’m rooting for the kid. I’m not rooting against him. But somehow, someway, somebody’s got to look Markelle Fultz in the face and say, ‘My brother, the only thing you’ve made noise about in your basketball career is that you showed up at the BET awards with Kevin Hart. That’s it.’”
