You want to know how big basketball is a part of Sixers’ top pick Markelle Fultz life?
Check out the shoes he wore to last night’s draft!
“This is real basketball leather. It’s custom-made. I got my hashtag on the side. I came up with the idea … Why not get a basketball and put it on the shoe? It’s what I love to do.”
Before he showed up on the red carpet, he did a fun interview with the Trail Blazers’ C.J. McCollum.

He said “basketball.”
