Markelle Fultz is ready to make his mark on the NBA with the Philadelphia 76ers, but he’s going to need a sandwich or two first. The newest first overall pick in the NBA Draft is ready to shine with the Sixers this fall, and Fultz is already thinking about tasting victory in more ways than one in Philly.
