May 17 (UPI) — Markelle Fultz is expected to be the No. 1 pick in the NBA Draft, but he might have to answer for a video he posted in high school.
“Man, shut up LeBron,” Fultz says in the video, talking about James speaking during a postgame interview. “Can’t even see your hairline fool. You gonna be bald in the next 24 hours. The next game, you gonna be bald. Shut up.”
Fultz, 18, averaged 23.2 points, 5.9 assists and 5.7 rebounds per game last season for the Huskies. He was a finalist for the Wooden Award.
The interview took place on June 19, 2013. That night, James’ Miami Heat beat the San Antonio Spurs 103-100 in Game 6 of the NBA Finals. That game went to overtime on a game tying 3-pointer by Ray Allen with just 0:05 seconds remaining. The Heat went on to win its second consecutive title in that series.
The video was made almost four years ago, while Fultz was 14-years-old. He attended Maryland’s DeMatha Catholic High School before heading off to Seattle.
