At least our medical stuff seems to be getting better, Sixers medical staff looks like the worst in sports.

Not a wasted talent at all. Just a stupid medical staff.

Or bad luck. I would love to get Fultz if the Sixers decide to trade him, imagine a Fultz and Ball tandem.

In the last 4 years the 76ers have had four top 3 picks and shut them all down for their rookie seasons. The team is a (bleep) joke. I mean I know Fultz isn't done for the year yet but this was how they've handled it every time before. "Out for at least 3 weeks" then when they re-visit it he'll be out for the season. They tank for the 5th consecutive year and get another top 3 pick to shut down for a year.

I genuinely feel bad for any rookie to get drafted there because you'll straight up just waste a year of your career.

And I also have no clue what a scapular imbalance is meant to be. I've never heard of a player being out with muscular imbalances before.

I think it means he is having shoulder pain in over head motions and they are blaming it on relative weakness (or unbalanced use) of one or more of the three major muscle groups that rotate the shoulder, causing unbalanced stress on the joint. Pretty much how it sounds. It also seems pretty broad. It can be from incorrect form or something more serious, like a neurological issue that effects muscle recruitment.

I’m sure they’ve done MRI and sixers actually said there is no structural damage. This focal muscle weakness can certainly be neurological like you suggested... red flag

Hopefully not, that would be terrible. Flexibility and alignment issues over the course of 10,000 shots or whatever he has taken in the last few months can add up. And fo course, the Sixers have been so forthcoming up to this point.

Maybe Phoenix should dangle Bledsoe for a Bledsoe for Fultz trade?

76ers Get:
Eric Bledsoe

Suns Get:
Markelle Fultz

The Sixers aren't that dumb. People on twitter are making fun of media guys for even suggesting this trade.

Only way the 76rs do that trade is if Bledsoe is injured...

76'ers would laugh their ass off at that offer......Fultz is going to make a lot of doubters look silly when he gets healthy.

can't guarantee that...Tatum has looked very good....but I also do not think it is that simple.....76'ers felt like they needed a player in the mold of Fultz to play next to Simmons, and much less use for Tatum or Jackson....so I have no problem with them moving up to get their guy....and guy that most suspected would not be there @ #3.
