Fox Joins Yahoo Sports’ Posted Up Podcast
De’Aaron Fox recently took a timeout from the court to chop it up with Yahoo Sports Senior NBA Insider Chris Haynes, discussing a range of topics dealing with his NBA journey, from draft night to present day.
When the subject of the fastest player in the league came up, De’Aaron was not shy to state his opinion.
“I am the fastest person in the league,” said Fox without hesitation.
While he did give props to his NBA counterparts, John Wall and Russell Westbrook, he didn’t waver on his stance.
De'Aaron isn’t satisfied with just being the leagues fastest, he realizes it’s his time to lead Sacramento. Fox acknowledged his growth as leader going from his first to his second season.
“When I started starting, I became more vocal, and when the trade deadline hit, [I thought], wow, it is my team.”
No. 5 also mentioned how veterans like former Kings guard Garrett Temple, Zach Randolph, and Kosta Koufos helped shape him as a leader.
“Coming into this year, I know what I’m talking about, now I know what I’m doing,” said Fox regarding his second season in the Association.
Although De’Aaron has taken the reigns, he knows it couldn’t be done without the team and its fans.
“Everyone here is diehard," said Fox. "It’s electric every game, that’s why I love it, and I want to see what it’s like if we made the playoffs.”
