Will things ever start looking up for the Sixers’ Markelle Fultz?

On draft night in the 76ers’ war room, according to those familiar with what transpired, the drumbeat of the evening was all about finding a “third star” for the roster, a player with the potential to complement Joel Embiid and…

Fultz is a point guard, but the Sixers already have one. Will he morph into a "third star?" The team has made it clear they no longer expect that to happen.

Philadelphia 76ers: Markelle Fultz looks far more comfortable at point guard

The Philadelphia 76ers’ win over the Orlando Magic revealed something about Markelle Fultz’s present strengths and weaknesses. Ben Simmons played seven minutes before exiting the game with back stiffness against the Orlando Magic last Saturday, leaving the Philadelphia 76ers shorthanded while forcing Joel Embiid and J.J. Redick to carry the offensive burden. That meant point […] Philadelphia 76ers: Markelle Fultz looks far more comfortable at point guard - The Sixer Sense - The Sixer Sense - A Philadelphia 76ers Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

If Ben Simmons' injury lingers, Markelle Fultz could get more run for Sixers

Sixers may need a lineup change, but Markelle Fultz needs a clear role either way

Sixers may need a lineup change, but Markelle Fultz needs a clear role either way

The jury is still out on the early Fultz-as-starter experiment. The Philadelphia 76ers' first two games of the 2018-19 season haven't told us anything we didn't know already. The Boston Celtics are clearly the better team, the Chicago Bulls can't defend, Ben Simmons and Joel Embiid are super talented, and the Sixers could still use more shooting. For a team built around two players in Simmons (a non-shooter) and Embiid (a capable yet below average three-point shooter who favors post play), space around them is essential. This is where J.J. Redick, with his endless off-ball movement,...

Ben Simmons Has Leveled Up Defensively

Triple-doubles AND lock-down defense? How is this fair!?! Can we talk about something for a second regarding the Sixers? No, not the fact that Joel Embiid is still very good -- because that was never in doubt. No, not the Markelle Fultz three-pointer that was splashed in the fourth quarter of Thursday night’s game -- although, holy god, that was special: Philly ❤️s Fultz#HereTheyCome pic.twitter.com/4XuqTouGww— NBA on TNT (@NBAonTNT) October 19, 2018 (When I asked what the crowd was like at Wells Fargo when that happened, our Sean O’Connor beautifully described it as people...

Philadelphia 76ers fans have patiently waited for their 2017 No.1 overall pick, Markelle Fultz, to progress into the player they drafted him to be.

Philadelphia 76ers: Markelle Fultz can build on his first career 3-pointer

Despite a slow start to the season, Markelle Fultz still offers the Philadelphia 76ers loads of potential. The Philadelphia 76ers are 1-1 after a dominant victory over the Chicago Bulls on Thursday night. Joel Embiid and Ben Simmons were their typical selves, posting 30 points and a triple-double, respectively.

The Bulls' game plan vs. the Sixers was to ignore Markelle Fultz. Other teams might do that too.

Markelle Fultz was part of the Bulls' scouting report on the Sixers, but not in the way you would hope.

The Philadelphia 76ers bounced back in a big way following their opening night loss to the Boston Celtics. Opening night was not a fun one for the Philadelphia 76ers.
