Markelle Fultz calls new free-throw routine ‘trial and error’
The confidence of Markelle Fultz continues to be a question, not just for Philadelphia 76ers fans but for NBA heads around the league wondering just when the former No. 1 overall pick will get back to his old college self.
Fultz continues to struggle in the oddest ways. The sophomore guard was seen double clutching a free throw attempt recently, which apparently led to another new routine at the charity stripe.
In his latest change is one where Fultz does a little juggle of the ball back and forth before quickly moving into a shooting motion. It took many by surprise on social media, and reporters naturally asked Fultz about it.
For his part, Fultz said that he’s not going to change the routine because it appears to be working for him.
Markelle Fultz on his new approach at the free throw line: "It’s something I added right now. Just trial and error. It's been working nice for me so I'm going to stick with it for now." He went 2-for-4 vs UTA. Rebounded his own miss late in the 3rd & found Butler for a 3-pt play https://t.co/807xKORmHb— Ian Begley (@IanBegley) November 17, 2018
Hey, whatever gives this kid confidence at this time is something that works.
