Fultz used social media to show his appreciation Thursday night, as he watched the Dallas Cowboys beat the Washington Redskins on Thanksgiving in Week 12 of the National Football League season.

Newly-minted Cowboys wide receiver Amari Cooper erupted for 180 yards and two touchdowns off of eight receptions against Dallas' division rival Washington Redskins in their Thanksgiving Day matchup.

Fultz was a good sport, posting a video of the celebration and his reaction on Instagram saying "good shot boy". His unique shots have been the butt of jokes, and those have now reached the NFL.

Fultz was diagnosed with a scapular muscle imbalance in his shooting shoulder last season and received a cortisone shot last October to help deal with discomfort.

Man Shoots Woman To Death At Ocala, Florida Walmart
The man wanted to get back together while the woman did not, the woman's roommate, Scotty Ballard, told the newspaper. An argument Saturday at a Florida Walmart garden center ended when a woman was fatally shot several time.

He's shown an odd hitch at the line and experimented with different routines, one of which appears to be the the direct target of Cooper's mock free throw in the third quarter. The ball practically got caught in his hands on one missed attempt, drawing comparisons to Charles Barkley's famously awful golf swing.

Sixers guard Markelle Fultz reportedly wants out of Philadelphia, though his agent insists the second-year player hasn't made any such request.

Whatever the reason, Fultz appears to have a sense of humor about it. He took to Snapchat to praise the shot as a chorus of family members and friends laughed and cheered in the background.
