    Hindsight may be 20/20 but there is also perhaps a little revisionist history as to how much of a consensus 1 he was. Simmons, Lebron, Kyrie, Oden we’re consensus 1’s. I don’t remember that level for fultz and if there was that much of a consensus, Boston sure as hell wouldn’t have traded out. 

    I dont think this is a Greg oden situation...
    Every draft is different. Nobody is comparing him to Lebron. That’s crazy talk. 

    Compared to the guys guys at the top of the 2017 draft class, he was the consensus top pick. This cannot be disputed. And the problems he is having in the NBA could not have been predicted by anyone. It is the most unusual of circumstances. 

    And Boston didn’t have a need on their roster for a player like Fultz, while the Sixers absolutely did. 
    Then leave Lebron out of it. Still not the other 3 and I am sure there are plenty of others I can come up with. I’d like to hit up the old google machine because I remember a lot of who the Fuck is fultz outside of mostly hardcore college and Sixers fans
    Sorry, man. I'm not the one utilizing revisionist history. He was the consensus number pick for the 2017 draft and was a perfect fit for this team at the time:

    • Markelle Fultz seems to be a virtual lock at No. 1 to the Sixers and Lonzo Ball is all but certainly headed to the Lakers at No. 2. Both appear in those positions in all 12 mock drafts we survey. 
       
    • But what will the Celtics do at No. 3? Assuming they keep the pick (some think Boston could deal away the No. 3 pick), seven of the 12 mocks now see the Celtics taking Jayson Tatum, while four think they're eyeing Kansas' Josh Jackson. In our previous breakdown from Monday, those roles were reversed. But it now seems that Tatum is the guy for Boston.

    1. Philadelphia 76ers: Markelle Fultz, PG, Washington

    For the third time in the last four years, the 76ers have walked away from the draft with the consensus top player available. Fultz is a do-everything guard who can run a team, score at all three levels of the floor, and (hopefully) play better defense than he did at Washington. He’s the final piece in what could be a dominant Big Three with Ben Simmons and Joel Embiid, although all of them are best with the ball in their hands. A pass-first guard like Lonzo Ball might have been a better fit, but Fultz provides first-option insurance in case either Simmons or Embiid goes down again. The Process faithful can bask in the #RTArmageddon tonight. They have earned it.

    Looks like you did the Google machine work for me.  Fair enough.  I'm still taking Tatum because I had no clue who the hell Fultz

    Well....yeah, that's the 20/20 hindsight that we did not have a year and a half ago. Nobody had Tatum as the top choice back then (except, perhaps, some local Boston guys because he was a better fit for that team). That's all I'm saying.

    For sure.  He seems like a decent kid too.  It's bizarre

    Yeah, I like the trade.  Definitely think he is a rung below the kind of player they were hoping for, but it's time and what are they going to wait for? Hoping KD or Kawhi comes.  Slim chances...

    I remember not being thrilled with Fultz, but he was the only one of the top 4 that I knew nothing about.  I get it and you proved it with the articles.
    Either way---the whole situation with him sucks. 

    I'm happy with Butler. Give it a little time, get another shooter in here, and let's see what happens this Spring. 
    Do you want Carmelo on the Sixers?
    I would want him on the Celtics.

    Love Carmelo. Don't want him anywhere near the Sixers. They won't

    Hindsight may be 20/20 but there is also perhaps a little revisionist history as to how much of a consensus 1 he was. Simmons, Lebron, Kyrie, Oden we’re consensus 1’s. I don’t remember that level for fultz and if there was that much of a consensus, Boston sure as hell wouldn’t have traded out. 

    I dont think this is a Greg oden situation...
    Every draft is different. Nobody is comparing him to Lebron. That’s crazy talk. 

    Compared to the guys guys at the top of the 2017 draft class, he was the consensus top pick. This cannot be disputed. And the problems he is having in the NBA could not have been predicted by anyone. It is the most unusual of circumstances. 

    And Boston didn’t have a need on their roster for a player like Fultz, while the Sixers absolutely did. 
    Then leave Lebron out of it. Still not the other 3 and I am sure there are plenty of others I can come up with. I’d like to hit up the old google machine because I remember a lot of who the Fuck is fultz outside of mostly hardcore college and Sixers fans
    Sorry, man. I'm not the one utilizing revisionist history. He was the consensus number pick for the 2017 draft and was a perfect fit for this team at the time:
    http://www.nba.com/news/2017-consensus-mock-draft

    • Markelle Fultz seems to be a virtual lock at No. 1 to the Sixers and Lonzo Ball is all but certainly headed to the Lakers at No. 2. Both appear in those positions in all 12 mock drafts we survey. 
       
    • But what will the Celtics do at No. 3? Assuming they keep the pick (some think Boston could deal away the No. 3 pick), seven of the 12 mocks now see the Celtics taking Jayson Tatum, while four think they're eyeing Kansas' Josh Jackson. In our previous breakdown from Monday, those roles were reversed. But it now seems that Tatum is the guy for Boston.

    1. Philadelphia 76ers: Markelle Fultz, PG, Washington

    For the third time in the last four years, the 76ers have walked away from the draft with the consensus top player available. Fultz is a do-everything guard who can run a team, score at all three levels of the floor, and (hopefully) play better defense than he did at Washington. He’s the final piece in what could be a dominant Big Three with Ben Simmons and Joel Embiid, although all of them are best with the ball in their hands. A pass-first guard like Lonzo Ball might have been a better fit, but Fultz provides first-option insurance in case either Simmons or Embiid goes down again. The Process faithful can bask in the #RTArmageddon tonight. They have earned it.

    Looks like you did the Google machine work for me.  Fair enough.  I'm still taking Tatum because I had no clue who the hell Fultz
    Well....yeah, that's the 20/20 hindsight that we did not have a year and a half ago. Nobody had Tatum as the top choice back then (except, perhaps, some local Boston guys because he was a better fit for that team). That's all I'm saying.

    Thankfully Ainge never bit when he was in rumors to come here from the Knicks a couple years ago.
    I'm sure people will speculate about him going to Philly (as well as Lakers and a couple other spots) once he is released.
    Not a winning player, good luck to whatever team lands him.

    Ben needs to start fucking shooting. Enough already. 5 shots in 30+ min the other night. He doesn't even try. At least Fultz is taking foul line jumpers.

    “I’ve always said this that y’all have — we have some great fans,” Butler said. “It’s definitely an advantage. And then y’all have one of the catchiest things in the whole 1-2-3-4-5 Sixer deal. When I was the away team, I was always singing it.”

    Was listening to NBA radio yesterday and Brendan Heyward said he was "hearing" that Fultz has nerve damage. And, if he was 'hearing" that then the 76ers and others have also.

    Well :   https://www.thescore.com/nba/news/1658574

    Fultz won't practice or play until seeing shoulder specialist

    PHILADELPHIA PA - NOVEMBER 19 Markelle Fultz 20 of the Philadelphia 76ers watches the game from the bench in the second quarter against the Phoenix Suns at the Wells Fargo Center on November 19 2018 in Philadelphia Pennsylvania The 76ers defeated the Suns 119-114

    At the direction of his attorney, Raymond Brothers, Philadelphia 76ers point guard Markelle Fultz won't participate in practices or games until he's evaluated by a shoulder specialist next week, Brothers told The Athletic's David Aldridge.

    It appears to be another setback in Fultz's shoulder injury saga, which dates back to the beginning of last season. The sophomore's unusual shooting mechanics have been heavily scrutinized, particularly as a result of making just 53.4 percent of free-throw attempts since entering the league.

    Tuesday's development also came a day after Sixers coach Brett Brown refused to commit to Fultz as the team's backup point guard over T.J. McConnell.

    That definitely sounds like there's a disconnect between Fultz and the team if his attorney is advising him to seek other medical opinions.

    another bizarre scenario for this franchise.  For the kids sake I hope it is actually an injury but I definitely lean more towards he's got mental issues.  Either way for his sake I hope like heck he gets help-.
