RUMOR: Markelle Fultz's Shooting Issues Might Have A Real Medical Correlation
Philadelphia 76ers guard Markelle Fultz’s struggle with his shot has been well-documented. It has changed drastically since his college days, but there hasn’t been a compelling explanation for the Sixers sophomore’s shooting woes. However, that might have already changed.
According to a Redditor who goes by the username LonzoBBBall, Avi Saini is a medical student and a former Chicago Bulls blog writer. Saini introduces a possible theory, in what could explain what has been going on with his shooting problems.
If I had a credential, I would go up to his locker and ask him to look at a wall, lean forward and press his hands hard against the wall and look to see if his scapula protrudes more than the other. That would give all the info I needed to know.
Here is more on what Saini explained on the situation. You can read his Twitter thread below.
This theory is a complicated one, but it could also be the correct one. A lot of the theories that have been passed around so far have not been medical. It was usually something else, like changing his shot mechanics, or stuff like that.
With this theory proposed, it would be interesting to see if someone asks him about it. What is interesting about this theory the most is this that it comes after five days of Fultz’s ex-trainer saying he is not yet healthy.
If this is the reason why Fultz has shooting woes, you have to wonder why the Sixers medical staff has not conducted any tests.
