De'Aaron Fox 2020-2021 Outlook


Recommended Posts

Man, this particular thread is the epitome of silly, reactionary fantasy-land responses, but I'm am a bit more compelled to reply on this thread because I watch a lot of Kings games.  It's been a different version of Fox since coming back from the injury; more passive, discernibly wincing at his hip that he messed up a few games ago.  He's also playing on, (what the Kings community refers to them as), the "KANGS."  They're not a good team, they don't have a good coach, but if you watch the games Fox's explosiveness and speed is unreal, and his court-vision is excellent...and he's still getting better in my opinion. He's 23, and to say he's garbage and Kings made a mistake on him is one thing, but acknowledging his evolving abilities (and growing pains) on a devolving team is another.  Maybe this isn't his "year" but you all need to to try to separate fantasy from reality a bit more.  He's damn good, just not meeting your fantasy expectations.

but he had 2 turnovers..traaaash 

Sounds like a Mambo #5 summary.

He seems to keep disappearing by the early to mid 3rd round & I just can't really see if his track record justifies that...

Turnover machine who cant make a free throw to save his life who got a max lol. I watch plenty of Kings games and he's wildly inconsistent and has not developed at all this season

This is the first time in this thread you actually contributed some analysis. Thank you. Continue hating though.

Facts equal hate? So prove he is not a turnover machine and has developed from last season. Still cant make free throws and numbers aren't much different. He is on a max deal he is open to criticism and i love cowards like you who wait until the player has a nice game before commenting

Just listened to the so-called experts on a pod saying that you have to punt FT% is you own Fox...

I’m third best in FT% in a weekly-lock 8-cat roto league and I’ve been starting Fox every week.

roto its easier. h2h it can be a little harder. certainly doable only need one high volume ft anchor and he off sets all ft drag players (minus giannis) and you get 2 players avging  over 82% last time i checked.

something to think about ROS. fox #1 worst ft drag last month. #4 last 2 months only behind giannis drumm gobert. so if its close fox could hinder you.

 

edit sorry 83 % for capela and lillard

Joke of a fcuking player. And some people thought he was an all star lol

What are you even talking about? I’ve watched this whole game and nothing he has done would require this kind of under the bridge troll commentary.

As of reading this he has 18 points, 13 assist and 2 turnovers.

Bad percentages (8-21) and it’s a Sunday night, last game of weekly h2h.

Why own him if he’s so trash to you?

And there you go. If he could make free throws he wouldn't have cost his team

Bagley missed 2 in a row as well with less than a minute, but this is why they are the Kings. DonotGiveUp

People were talking up Fox as an all star. He's on a damn max contract and can't make free throws lol I'd love to see what they practice

Have you tried to trade him away? Or is your plan to rant on Fox's free throws for the rest of the season and continue to make yourself look like one of the worst posters on this forum? Because quite frankly if your team is suffering due to Fox's free throws as much as your posts make it seem, your team is probably trash and you should find a new hobby.

I've never seen someone so strongly and willingly hate on a player who's actually playing well as much as this dude has - it's mind-boggling. 

It's a forum you donkey. You signed up expecting a book club where everyone would kiss your a**. If you don't like forums try knitting fool
