Warning: I am Very Mad Online
Don't get me wrong, I am all here for Fultz having himself a nice little irrelevant career down in Orlando where the only thing people fucking care about is Disney World, and meth. But if I see one more day of Markelle Fultz praise, and Sixers slander for trading him, I am going to lose my fucking mind.
I understand that these are basically glorified twitter eggs. But come on now. Markelle Fultz is averaging 11 points, 3 rebounds, and 4 assists while shooting 26% FROM THREE. Where the FUCK does that fit into our offense? His stats per 36 minutes are 15.5 points, 6 assists, and 4.5 rebounds. In other words they are arguably WORSE than TJ MCCONNELL’S per 36 of 13 points, 10 assists, and 5 rebounds, while shooting 36% from three! Fultz’s per 36 this year are worse than his rookie year per 36 in Philly! In 17-18 they were 14 points, 7 assists, and 6 rebounds. Oh and he also did this.
The Sixers made this trade to free up cap space and bring in another max free agent. It was a good move. All you hear from the media is that this team doesn't fit, they don't have the shooters, blah blah blah. Then on the same hand you gonna start hearing this bullshit, saying that they should have never traded a guy who also CAN’T FUCKING SHOOT. I understand he was very good last night. But as a whole, he’s still the same exact fucking player. I hope he has a decent career, I really do, but fuck this slander about the Sixers trading him.
*I wanted Fultz to be good so bad. Like so so bad. I would watch this highlight clip for hours just wondering when the fuck he was going to remember how to shoot like that again.
