Markelle Fultz Shoots Free Throws Like He’s Never Touched A Basketball Before

The number one overall pick in this year’s NBA Draft shoots free throws like my mother. Or that boner they pluck out of the crowd to shoot for a million bucks at college games. Fultz has been dealing with soreness in his right shoulder, but the 19-year-old’s free throw history hasn’t been stellar. Fultz shot 65 percent from the line in his one season at Washington, shooting a dismal 40% from the charity stripe through two preseason games, and when you combine that with the rookie shooting just 29% from the field, this form starts to look like a cause for concern for Philly fans.

Yes, it’s literally two games into preseason basketball and the sample size is too narrow to make any substantial predictions, but not the mechanics you want to see from a guy you traded your third overall pick and a future first-rounder to acquire.

He may want to revert back to his college ways.
