Markelle Fultz is pumped because Philadelphia has a Chick-fil-A and Boston doesn’t
If playing alongside Ben Simmons, Dario Saric, and Joel Embiid isn’t reason enough to be excited to join the City of Brotherly Love, there’s always the numerous Chick-fil-A locations in Philadelphia ready to serve the top pick in the draft, Markelle Fultz.
In a self-written piece for The Players’ Tribune published Friday morning, titled “What’s Up, Philly“, Fultz shared how the draft process went from being a potential first selection by the Boston Celtics and suddenly changing to the Philadelphia 76ers less than a week before the draft.
“Then Keith (author’s note: Fultz’s agent) hit me up and said, “New plan. Philly.”
I was just waking up. So I was like, “O.K., cool. Do they have Chick-fil-A there?”
A crispy chicken sandwich for breakfast. It’s kind of like my good luck charm. Keith never got back to me about that important question. So I found out for myself. I googled it immediately.
Philly does have Chick-fil-A. It has six, actually.
Seven if you count the one at the airport. Boston has zero Chick-fil-As, for what it’s worth.”
Forget Philly cheesesteaks or a debate for the ages between Geno’s or Pat’s for best in the city — Fultz’s priorities are in Chick-fil-A’s locations (actually eight of them, including the airport), though it’s highly doubtful he’d be able to indulge in very many of them after the offseason.
