As has been stated in this thread before, his ability to dunk has never been hampered, ever. So this clip is irrelevant if we're only looking at it as a fierce dunk.

The positive I glean from this is.... if he is ALLOWED to do this by the medical staff, his TOS must be in good shape. Otherwise I would assume the Magic would shut down this kind of exersion.

Again, TOS doesn't inhibit his ability to dunk, but a recovery regiment imposed by a team who has invested millions would, I presume, prohibit this type of activity. I'll choose to see the positive

I will too! He's back and healthy and management is just being extra cautious they don't let out their excitement too early and have it come back to bite them in the rear! :D

I'm feeling pretty optimistic about Fultz...have to stay grounded and not overreact to this video, but I think what you said is spot on.

The one video we have not seen is Fultz shooting 10 three-balls in a row. Indeed, the last time we have seen evidence of Fultz shooting from range was on the NBA court on November 19, 2018. I know of no video evidence of him shooting the rock since that date.

I think he definitely knows more, they likely have worked out together in front of our coaches and FO.

Sure it would. I want to push back on this notion that you can dunk but not shoot with TOS. You would struggle doing either. Hell, you don't even want to brush your teeth with that hand. Any rotation without pain like that is a good thing. Now, he may have developed a hitch in his shooting mechanics, I don't know, but we can put his TOS to bed and move on.

I will too! He's back and healthy and management is just being extra cautious they don't let out their excitement too early and have it come back to bite them in the rear! :D


I agree! Caron Butler mentioned he's healthy and this is the summer he can really work on his game.

I think our organization doesn't want to put too much unwanted pressure on Fultz by hyping him up and saying he's back. Let him build his own legacy in Orlando!

With that said, the fact he hasn't picked up a basketball in months before the summer (due to rehab) and now being able to work on his game speaks volume about his progress!

I think Fultz has made the statement, that it was his first summer completely healthy.

Yep.... this entire time i'm sure he's been capable of doing the majority of the things we would have loved of him.... minus the shooting. Would we love thhe shooting ... of course... but we didn't need the shooting as much as 76ers needed markelle to shoot the ball to force their system to work with Simmons being a non shooter. CCouldn't have 2 of those in the back court. lol

The ability to shoot consistently is still important for us and his the trajectory of his career.... BUT... the multitude of things he is capable of doing will still make him a player for our team.... just hard to do them at his best if the defender knows that he can't physically shoot the ball. lol

This is what some people don't understand. We dumped Simmons and traded away two 2nd round picks for, at the very least, a young solid backup PG. In what world is that bad for a team trying to build upon their first playoff bid in almost a decade?

Little by little, we will find out things about Markelle Fultz's progress as we approach Training Camp.

For me, The Magic making no major changes at point guard says a lot about how they feel about Markelle Fultz.

The slow drip of news will continue until it is finally time for Preseason action.

I am very hopeful.

Comparing our backup PG from last season. Briscoe as a backup with a broken shot and bad freethrow shooter. And when he replaced Grant and traded away Simmons we turned it around and became the hottest team by the last month of the regular season.

If coach Cliff was able to put Briscoe in place where he can succeed. No reason it's not gonna work for Fultz. MCW as the replacement of Briscoe also contributed with him having a broken shot. I think the system of Cliff can absorb the offensive limitations of these backups.

Getting Fultz was a bargain. Jonathan Simmons was out of the rotation and maybe now out of the league.

The picks sent were essentially what they got for #25 on Draft Night 2017 (a future first which will now be 2 2nds along with a second round pick). All they did was send back a better second round pick.

The Magic needed to take a chance and I see hardly any risk in a deal that could pay huge dividends.

This is a VERY good point and we haven't even seen Fultz's jump shot.

Briscoe was also a big intangibles guy and a good change of pace from DJ because guys knew they could run and cut and he would find them. MCW also hustled his ass off. But I do agree with your overall sentiment.
