Markelle Fultz had a perfectly acceptable jumper as a freshman at Washington, and shot a very respectable 41 percent from the college three-point line last season.
But he was never a good free throw shooter, and the local lame-ass media is all over this one:
Fultz told CSNPhilly:
“My free throw’s going to look the same as in college. I’m just trying to look at different ways to see how the ball can go in the hoop.”
Sixers coach Brett Brown didn’t sound too thrilled to see Fultz tinkering with something that maybe wasn’t all that broken to begin with:
“His percentages revealed that he’s a more-than-capable shooter,” Brown said. “I think right now him trying to figure out how to not overcomplicate things and maybe make over something that didn’t need to be made over as much as he might of thought is a challenge.”
