No. 1 pick hopes to turn 76ers into winners

No. 1 pick hopes to turn 76ers into winners”

Markelle Fultz, taken first overall by the Sixers last night, has a column today in The Players' Tribune.

Ultimately, Fultz got it right the second time around.

Philadelphia 76ers' draft picks Anzejs Pasecniks, from left, Markelle Fultz, Jonah Bolden and Mathias Lessort pose after a news conference at the team's NBA basketball training complex, Friday, June 23, 2017, in Camden, NJ.

Embiid welcomed Fultz to Philly with a tweet — what else? It would be a dream come true for Ball to play alongside a player he looked up to during his school years. I woke up and thought I was going to Boston for another workout with the Celtics.

During Thursday night's draft, the No. 1 pick's social media crew forgot to include a couple of minor details in a post to Fultz's Instagram account repping watch brand Tissot. Brown said Simmons and Fultz, who will play in the summer league, could work well together in the backcourt, no matter which player is the ballhandler. He said despite being considered the top prospect, he was not operating with any guarantees in his mind. Still, they have until July 1 - that's when free agency starts, and they really need to have a deal done by then. I really like this kid and at 18 years old, he still has possibly a decade before he is in his prime.

We are just moments away from commissioner Adam Silver announcing the first overall pick of the 2017 NBA Draft.

"I don't know how they knew, but they knew". They'd ordered Chick-fil-A. It was there waiting for me on a table. "For real. A bunch of sandwiches", Fultz wrote. They'd ordered Chick-fil-A. It was there waiting for me on a table.

I don't know how they knew, but they knew. "They did their research".

In the article, titled "What's Up, Philly", Fultz writes about his excitement for joining the Sixers' young core. So they showed the courage to make the move.

Markelle Fultz, Lonzo Ball and the future of the National Basketball Association arrived Thursday night. He talked about how Embiid wants to succeed and wants to see everyone around him succeed.

"It's a blessing to me", Fultz told Kimmel.

"But the most important thing that came out of our meeting was that my mom liked Coach". "I look as it as good". Off the court, he is exceedingly loyal to those that believe in him. It's insane that it's only been seven days since I got invited to Philly. Faced with a player option worth $24 million, Wade decided, "Yes, I would like to be $24 million richer".

To add the cherry on top of the Bulls' rough night, they excited some fans of the organization when they took Jordan Bell out of OR early in the second round.
