See, Markelle Fultz can shoot, after all (Video)

Much has been made about Philadelphia 76ers rookie Markelle Fultz’s new and devolved shooting mechanics, exacerbated by a shoulder injury that has kept the No. 1 overall pick for three months.

We now have video proof that Fultz can, in fact, shoot from distance:

He’s shooting right-handed! The hitch is gone! And that shoulder looks strong!

Now, if only Fultz can start making free throws and jump shots during game action with the same efficiency he can sink backwards full-court shots in an empty arena, the 76ers will really be cooking.
