PHILADELPHIA (WTXF) - The Philadelphia 76ers point guard Markelle Fultz is back on the court showing his skills, but he’s also showing off his skills in the classroom.
The rookie recently helped a 76ers fan get an A by helping him solve a math problem.
It all started when a fan reached out to the Sixers in-arena host Christian Crosby and explained that his teacher said if he could get Markelle to help him with a math problem, he would get an A.
Crosby shared the exchange on Twitter and reached directly out to Markelle to see if he could help. After explaining that he was busy at the dentist and sharing a photo of his visit, Fultz agreed to help out.
Crosby sent him a photo of the problem, and Markelle responded a short time later with an answer that Crosby passed on to the student.
The student took Markelle’s answer to class and says he was promptly given an A, and the rest of the class got bonus points.
