Sixers’ Markelle Fultz Confident He Can Be Major Contributor

Published

on

Philadelphia 76ers guard Markelle Fultz is confident that he can establish himself as a “third piece” in a ‘Big 3’ in Philadelphia with teammates Joel Embiid and Ben Simmons during the 2018-2019 regular season, despite a disappointing rookie year marred by injury and shooting struggles.

“I kind of like when people doubt me and say ‘look for another star,’” Fultz said, according toKeith Pompey of The Philadelphia Inquirer. “I see myself as that player. I just work every day to become better.”

“I really don’t look at other people’s goals [for him], but I definitely look at it to see myself as that next player that can step up in that role.”

Sixers head coach Brett Brown has certainly expressed his confidence in Fultz, hoping that Fultz will take advantage of a starting opportunity.

“My goal is to come and help the team in as many ways as I can,” Fultz said. “We did pretty good in making it to the playoffs, the second round.”

Sixers’ J.J. Redick Taking on Mentorship Role

Published

on

Philadelphia 76ers guard J.J. Redick is taking on a mentorship role on the team, despite not coming back to the team for another season, following a career year, expecting to be in a mentorship role.

“I’ve always looked at leadership, mentorship, as something that requires a certain amount of diligence on both sides,” Redick said, according to Keith Pompey of The Philadelphia Inquirer. “It requires an organic process rather than just assigning roles to people.”

Redick’s teammate T.J. McConnell notes that Redick’s personality naturally assumes the role of mentor.

“Whether he likes to believe it or not, it’s just his personality; guys flock to him because the type of person he is and the type of player he is and his work ethic,” McConnell stated. “For him to say that he wasn’t going to come in and be a mentor early on is just crazy.”

Redick is quick to point to Keyon Dooling, who mentored Redick when the two were together playing for the Orlando Magic.

“Whether he knows it or not, Keyon had a big impact on me and provided encouragement for me when things were looking grim,” Redick said. “I remember my spirits being lifted by just simple words. You don’t know the impact you can have on someone. Elton [Brand] and Keyon didn’t realize it probably, so hopefully, I’m doing something right and I’m not even realizing it and I’m having an impact on someone.”
