Brett Brown Rumors
Sources around the NBA have said that folks inside the organization have been telling league colleagues since October that it was mental. But if you needed any confirmation, it came during the Sixers’ ESPN televised game against the Oklahoma City Thunder on Jan. 28. That’s when broadcaster Mark Jones said Sixers coach Brett Brown disclosed in a production meeting that Fultz was suffering from “psychosomatic effects” with his shooting. Translation: Jones said Brown acknowledged that Fultz has a mental block and psychological conflict that prevents him from shooting correctly.
Jones tweeted the follow night that Brown never actually used the word “psychosomatic.” However, his tweet didn’t deny that the coach told him it was a mental thing for the University of Washington product.
