Markelle Fultz’s Broken Shot Has Made It Into A J. Cole Rap Verse


Last year’s number one draft pick, Markelle Fultz’s saga is still as strange and controversial as it was during his rookie season.

At the beginning of said rookie season, Fultz played through a shoulder injury that apparently caused him to forget how to shoot. All we know is that Fultz did not shoot weirdly in college, but does now.

But no doctor was really able to diagnose an injury, or a cause for the shooting woes and possible pain Fultz was experiencing.

Then, after plenty of unsuccessful doctor appointments, Fultz finally was able to find out the reason for his shooting woes. He was diagnosed with Neurogenic Thoracic Outlet Syndrome, (TOS), a physical injury. TOS affects nerves between the neck and shoulder resulting in abnormal functional movement and range of motion, thus severely shoot a basketball.

While we still don’t doubt that it’s partly a psychological issue as well, the issues have made it into a rap song.

Last night, 21 Savage released his new album “i am > i was”. The first song of the album, “a lot”, features J. Cole, who, in his verse, made a reference about Fultz’s shooting woes.
