VIDEO: MARKELLE FULTZ DECLARES FOR NBA DRAFT
Markelle Fultz surprised no one when he officially declared for the 2017 NBA Draft on March 10, 2017.
As a freshman first team All-Pac12 performer and All-American, Markelle achieved more in his freshman year than almost every other Husky MBB player did in 3 or 4 years time.
[Yes, we’re conveniently leaving the #GOAT Kelsey Plum out of this conversation.]
Regardless of win-loss record Markelle Fultz was historically good.
The truth is Fultz was too good for the 2016-2017 roster. Specifically, Markelle was playing at an NBA-level skills-wise and was too unselfish of a teammate to demand a higher effort and performance from his teammates.
Markelle deserved better from his UDUB teammates, coaches and fans but he gave all he had in difficult situation and that alone makes him a great Husky!
Congrats and Good Luck in the NBA, Markelle!
