Kings guard De’Aaron Fox called ‘a b*tch’ by ESPN personality Amin Elhassan
On “The Harbershow,” Tom Harberstoh’s NBA podcast, Amin Elhassan fired back at Sacramento Kings guard De’Aaron Fox once again with some NSFW remarks.
“This isn’t the business for you to be catching feelings. Twas the b*tch that caught the feelings, not the man that you call the b*tch. And I’m not calling him a b*tch, I’m just saying,” Elhassan emphatically exclaimed during the podcast.
To give some context, Amin Elhassan made a controversial statement about the Kings’ speedy guard, saying that “Ja Morant is who De’Aaron Fox thinks he is.” It caused the young guard to call out Elhassan on social media, calling him a “b*tch.”
These verbal exchanges has be an ongoing source of hostility between the two individuals, and the statements Elhassan made on the podcast will undoubtedly fuel the fire.
Elhassan made it a point that the NBA is not a platform in which professionals can afford to catch feelings, in reference to Fox’s behavior on social media in response to his statement that started it all.
Fox, a talented guard drafted in the first round from Kentucky in 2017, averaged 21.1 points and 6.8 assists per game last season. With his explosiveness and hustle on defense and improvement on his offense, his game has elevated compared to his last few seasons. Though the Kings have seen little success during his tenure, Fox is proving himself to be a difficult force to contain on the court.
With the 2020-21 NBA season underway, Fox and the Kings surely cannot afford to let this feud get in the way of competing with the top-notch talent the West has to offer. Missing the playoffs in all of his seasons in Sacramento, Swipa has the chance to forge his own path and relieve the team from this playoff drought.
