via Youtube

I know we’re on Markelle Fultz overload, but this is an interesting nugget making the social media rounds.

Landry Fields spent five seasons in the NBA before a nerve issue in his right arm led to multiple surgeries and forced an adjustment to his shooting form. It was an issue that played a role in bringing his career to an end a few short years later.

Wednesday, Fields popped up on Twitter in response to a weeks-old tweet pointing out the similarities between his and Markelle’s struggles:

It’s not technically the same thing, the Thoracic Outlet Syndrome that Fultz was diagnosed with, but there’s a lot of similar stuff that shows up on tape, after the jump:

  1. How much is a CB subscription? You guys have been putting out some really compelling content, and I’d love to see all the premium stuff you are creating. Also, could we get a heads up when the next subscriber-only party will be?

  2. Stick to soccer Kinkead. Btw: I’ll fight any of you weak CB contributors anytime. Except that massively obese Phil Keidel. Wouldn’t be a fair fight, dude goes probably 300lbs.

  3. When one reads these moronic comments don’t you hope the Sixers trade him just so he can go a civilized city? I don’t know how Kevin can explain how many ignorant fans read his column, but maybe they can’t, and just barf up these statements like one passes gas.
