Inside De’Aaron Fox’s historic triple double

Fox is just incredible.

NBA: Sacramento Kings at Atlanta Hawks Dale Zanine-USA TODAY Sports


It’s an incredible stat line for any player, but for De’Aaron Fox it is the official notice to the league: I have arrived.

Fox assembled his stat line not through forced shots or hero ball, but within the flow of the offense. The Atlanta Hawks had no answer for Fox. He blew past defenders, drilled threes, drew fouls, and whipped cross-court dimes. It was everything you’d hope for from a 5th overall pick and more. Fox may not have been the most impressive rookie in his class, but his sophomore campaign is off to an elite start.

But let’s look at some additional context behind Fox’s stat line, shall we?

Fox was efficient as hell.

Fox is in good company.

And he’s the youngest to ever put up that stat line.

The Kings have found themselves a star. His name is De’Aaron Fox.
