A Sixers fan posted an incredible thread last month breaking down how the works of "Doctor Movement" were removed from the internet, as fans of The Process began to listen to the reasoning behind his theory that Fultz had a Thoracic nerve issue.

Fultz has struggled to shoot the basketball since the 76ers made him the No 1 overall pick in the 2017 NBA Draft out of Washington.

As for the Sixers, Fultz receiving a diagnosis that the team around him agrees with could be the next step towards getting him back on the court. "There's no way you're the No 1 pick in the world and all of a sudden you aren't able to consistently raise your arms to shoot". Therefore, severely limiting Fultz's ability to shoot a basketball.

Over the course of his first two seasons, Fultz has averaged just 7.7 points and 3.4 assists in 20.6 minutes per game in 33 games played and 15 starts.
