The problem is he gets the shots because the opponent currently allows him to. They don’t respect his shot.
If he starts hitting those wide open shots more regularly they have complete control over the situation, not Fultz. They can change their strategy and guard him, taking away his one deep shot entirely.
What does he do then?
If they start to guard him then he can use his hesi dribble style to get to the rim or pull up from midrange. It also makes more room for cutting teammates.
So he becomes Ben Simmons and never attempts 3s? That’s working out swell for them.
The point is he needs to become more aggressive, more confident and all around more consistent with that shot.
