The Truth behind the Fultz Injury Conspiracy

Over the last two seasons we haven’t seen much to be proud about pertaining to our 2017 first round Markelle Fultz, averaging a measly 7.7 points 3.4 assists and 3.4 rebounds per game over a total of 33 games played. This would be fairly good if Fultz had been say a late first or second round pick but sadly he was the first overall pick. And to make matters worse we traded a future first to move up two picks to select him as many of you know. In defense of Markelle, he has been dealing with a somewhat undefinable injury that had left me scratching my head for quiet some time. So to clear things up i have done extensive research into the subject and  belief to have come up with the reason for Fultz’s injury and loss of confidence resulting from said injury. Below is a summed up report of my findings

Part 1:

Now as many of you know Markelle Fultz is undoubtable the biggest Chick-fil-a enthusiast in the NBA and has been quoted saying he eats it almost everyday. The video below you can see his love for the christian based company’s chicken and sauce. Obviously the consumption of this much fast-food will lead to weight gain whether you’re a professional athlete or not. In addition Fultz is relatively young, immature, and doesn’t know how a professional athlete cares for his/her body. With that said weight gain will lead to a lose of athleticism and durability. Both these have added to the decline of Fultz’s talent level as he has clearly become worse than he was in college, perhaps even high school. But this is not the only reason he has digressed as much as he has

Part 2: 

Over the past week, Fultz has been advised by his agent/attorney Raymond Brothers to step away from the team and get his shoulder checked out by a private doctor. Before hearing of this news I was in belief that Fultz had recovered from his shoulder injury that left him out most of last year… evidently not. I’m not really sure what a private doctor will tell him that the Sixers’ medical staff hasn’t already but whatever more power to him. This is not the issue i have instead i am questioning the reemergence and origin of said injury.  After i reasonable amount of research i have come to the conclusion that Markelle fultz got injured in a motorcycle accident which if true would negate his contract similar to Jay Williams circa 2020. Due to the potential lose of money Fultz and his camp have been keeping the origins and seriousness of injury under wraps. When his shooting coach Drew Hanlen tweeted about this secret injury Fultz immediately denounced Drew and removed all contact with him, coincidence? i think not. All signs point to Markelle getting into a most likely dumb and childish motorcycle crash leading to a loss of skill and shooting ability, a common after effect seen for motorcycle crashes. This being from the unsafe nature of the motorcycle, and if you don’t belief me just look up the story of once top prospect Jay Williams.


This motorcycle crash in combination with poor dietary habits a la Chick-fila is the real reason for Fultz becoming the monumental bust we are  currently witnessing. Markelle Fultz if you or any of you’re camp is reading this the jig is up cause I, CourtsideVP, have uncovered the truth behind you’re stupid injury despite efforts to cover it up
