He looks like Chuck Knoblauch throwing to first.

Thatís exactly what I thought.  It really seems like heís quickly developing a case of the yips.  The Sixers should find some injury to use an excuse to sit him down with and convince him/everyone else that this was the problem.  The yips are not to be trifled with.
I think Philly is too afraid of public backlash.

He obviously needs some time off, either to fix that jumper or to rest his shoulder.

Markelle is very crafty and sneaky athletic. He has some great moves and is a good passer, but if he is afraid to shoot jumpers, then he doesnt project any better than Evan Turner.

I think Simmons doesn't project much better than Turner, either. The Sixers were the ones who wasted a #2 pick on Turner, too, lol.

I'm not that high on him but that's over the top.

Depends on if they wise up in how they use him though.  He's not a PG.  Let him be Lamar Odom esque.  He's not going to be able to dribble around and use screens and run an offense.

He has top level rebounding potential and he's a great athlete.  Let him be a big man.  Maybe you don't play Embiid as much with him if that's the case, but then that's what you should do.  I think trying to legit use him as a PG is a joke.

I am just not buying that this guy is a bad shooter.  Give him time, he is a young kid trying to justify his #1 pick status.

I've never heard of a player being kept off the roster to work on shooting.  There are enough hours in a day that he can work on his shot and still play in the games.
He needs to reset mentally.

he doesnt need to "work on his shot" he needs to work on his mind.

Three games into the season he has yet to shoot a jumper.

A phenomenon known as the yips. He has completely lost all confidence in his ability to shoot the basketball.

One of his free throws last night.

Injuries don't cause form like that.


Actually they do. He is trying to lessen the impact on his shoulders, that is why he is using a shooting motion that uses the wrist more to push the ball out.

Sorry. That is a ridiculous cop-out.

If he actually had a rotator cuff or an injury that prevented him from shooting, he wouldn't be playing.

Simple.

Im sorry but if you think you are more believable than a professional basketball team's coach and medical staff you are sadly mistaken. Delusional even.

You should quit your day job and go into comedy.   I don't think that your intent but I almost fell out of my chair laughing.  Is the yips contagious? Is their a vaccine? 

From what I have seen of the human face over 50% of people seem born with it.  Because most people when shooting a basketball can't make two with a pencil.

Yeah except it's actually a scientific proven thing that happens with professional players of various sports.

Maybe do some research before you fall off your chair laughing at someone else's opinion.

Where is the definitive report that states his injury and its severity?

You think he wouldn't prefer to fight through the pain of a rotator cuff problem to not embarrass himself on national television and the internet? This could very well be just as mental and form related as a physical injury.

"Markelle had a shoulder injury and fluid drained out of the back of his shoulder," agent Raymond Brothers told ESPN. "He literally cannot raise up his arms to shoot the basketball. He decided to try and fight through the pain to help the team. He has a great attitude. We are committed to finding a solution to get Markelle back to 100 percent."

this is the type of thing where you fire the entire coaching staff. There was a link posted where the head coach said he Thinks the injury was why he shot bad. He knew and still played him. Fire him.

I guess if playing wasn't supposed to exacerbate the injury and they wanted to get him early reps...nope, it still makes no sense. Didn't they royally screw up Embiid's diagnosis and let him play another game with a torn meniscus?

I just hope it doesn't give him a mental (or physical) block going forward. As much as we want to crow about making the right decision with that deal, I hate to see a young talented guy not fulfill his potential because he listened to team doctors.

If he's got shoulder bursitis, it's odd that he's playing. The main treatment for this condition is rest...
