LeBron James

Markelle Fultz is out here getting triple-doubles and manhandling LeBron James


Markelle Fultz spent Wednesday night living up to the hype that came with him being drafted No.


1 overall pick in the 2017 NBA draft — he ended up with a triple-double (21 points, 11 rebounds, 10 assists) in a stunning Orlando Magic upset of LeBron James and the Los Angeles Lakers.


Of course, we all know the saga started with the Philadelphia 76ers taking him with the top pick and ended with the struggling guard getting shipped out to the Magic at last year’s trade deadline for Jonathon Simmons, a second-rounder and a 2020 first-round pick.


Back to the Sixers for a second: they don’t deserve to completely slammed for trading Fultz when his value was at its lowest.


I don’t know if he ever would have succeeded in Philly — it seemed like a change of scenery and a second chance was the only way to jump-start his career.


So Philadelphia ended up getting something for Fultz, who didn’t play a single game since November of 2018 until he was a member of the Magic.
