Kings star De’Aaron Fox reacts to his 9th grade highlights
Sacramento Kings point guard De’Aaron Fox appeared like he was destined for the NBA even when he was still in the 9th grade.
The 22-year-old shifty speedster took a trip down memory lane on Monday, as he reacted to a highlight clip during his days at Cypress Lakes High School in Katy, Texas.
Sheesh 😂 https://t.co/X1nEmjPU9S

De’Aaron Fox simply stood out over the rest of the competition, using his unreal athleticism to throw down poster dunks over guys his age. Looks like the lefty guard has always possessed that frightening speed, leaving defenders in the dust each time down the floor.
The NBA suspension due to the coronavirus, meanwhile, has given players a lot of idle time on their hands. Fox, along with other players, have been using the downtime to reminisce some of the best plays of their careers.
Brooklyn Nets combo guard Spencer Dinwiddie admitted he experiences withdrawals and watches his highlights constantly, while Golden State Warriors star Stephen Curry, Washington Wizards guard Bradley Beal, and Boston Celtics swingman Jayson Tatum all came clean.
Even superstar LeBron James of the Los Angeles Lakers documented himself watching some good old times with his former Miami Heat teammate Dwyane Wade.
Fox and the rest of the Kings, meanwhile, had a rough going prior to the suspension. They held a 28-36 slate and were outside the playoff race in the Western Conference at 11th place.
The 6-foot-3 guard also had to miss some time due to nagging injuries. He was sensational in the 45 games he played, notching 20.4 points, 4.0 rebounds, 6.8 assists and 1.4 steals, while shooting 47.5 percent from the field and 30.7 from downtown.
