Markelle Fultz ‘not good at anything right now’; wants to play physical with Magic
In his first two years in the league, Markelle Fultz played just a mere 33 games due to his controversial shoulder injury. The new Orlando Magic guard is aware of how much his injury has affected his game, noting that he’s “not good at anything” at this point in time.
However, he has a specific goal in mind for his third year in the league: to learn the team’s play style and play physical.
“I don’t think I’m great at anything right now on the court,” Fultz said, per Josh Robbins of The Athletic. “I want to get better on the defensive end. I’m learning our team concepts, keeping my man in front (of me), not getting beat. Then, on the offensive end, just finding my teammates even better, helping them get more organized with the offense (is a goal). Myself, I forgot where my kill spots are going to be, where I’m gonna get my shots.”
While he doesn’t have a standout skill that can help the Magic instantly, Fultz believes that his strength will be an asset for him as he gets his rhythm back.
“I feel like I’m a physical player,” Fultz added. “I like contact, so I’m always trying to get into people, use my body. I feel like my strength is one of the things that is one of my advantages.”
For Fultz fans, this may be the year for their hero. The first two years were tough experiences for him, but it certainly brought great lessons. The 2019-20 campaign is certainly a fresh start for Fultz.
