Philadelphia 76ers rookie point guard Markelle Fultz has struggled with a balky shoulder and his shooting stroke early in his NBA career. But perhaps a new shift in technique will have him putting up Stephen Curry-type numbers when he’s finally back in action.
Here’s the latest from the Washington product, who proved he has eyes in the back of his head during a goof-off session Friday morning.

The Sixers recently made it clear they still think Fultz is going to need more time to get his shoulder right. Who really knows what that means? We sure don’t. But at least we do know that the kid can get the ball through the hoop, even if his methods are a bit unconventional.
