Opinion: Markelle Fultz should Continue Seeing Backup Point Guard Minutes

Opinion: Markelle Fultz should Continue Seeing Backup Point Guard Minutes

Fultz was on a short leash in Game 2, but he deserves another opportunity. The Sixers have a bit of a problem right now: they have 3 points guards, and none of them can shoot. It’s not a universal truth that a point guard needs a jumper, but it makes life a whole lot easier for the player and his teammates. The good news is that about 36 of the 48 minutes of point guard play belongs to Ben Simmons, who is highly effective even without a jumper. But those other 12 minutes of point guard play is a question mark because of TJ McConnell and Markelle Fultz’ lack of jumper and the reactions...

The Silver Lining of the Joel Embiid Injury

The Silver Lining of the Joel Embiid Injury

2018 has been a magical year for Philadelphia sports fans, but on March 28, it felt like the city was all out of pixie dust. That was the night Markelle Fultz’s possibly cursed shoulder collided with Joel Embiid’s face, concussing the star center and fracturing his orbital bone. “Save us, Nick Foles,” we cried to the heavens. Up until then, the Sixers had largely been a disaster whenever Embiid was absent. The team had gone 3-8 in games he had sat out this season, and sported a -4.4 net rating when he was off the court. The dream of the 3-seed seemed dead. Would Philadelphia even be...
