De’Aaron Fox’s NSFW response to notion Twitter drama is to blame for poor play

De'Aaron Fox Kings

The Sacramento Kings have had some drama take place off of the court in the past week regarding some interesting tweets from Marvin Bagley’s father. While some people believe the tweets created chaos in the locker room, De’Aaron Fox had an NSFW response to anyone who may have let the tweets affect them.

“I don’t think anyone is out there playing basketball worrying about two tweets,” Fox said, via James Ham of NBC Sports. “And if you are, this ain’t what you should be doing because m———–s are going to tweet you everyday of your life while you’re playing in this league. So if that’s what you’re worried about, then I don’t know what to tell you.”

Over the weekend, there were tweets sent by Bagley’s father that were pleas toward the Kings to trade his son elsewhere. Amid the controversy that Bagley’s father created, Sacramento has lost their last three games, which some people believe is connected to the series of tweets.

Through the first four games of the season, the Kings were 3-1 and looked to be a much-improved team from last season. But a lopsided 137-106 loss to the Golden State Warriors on Monday night has Sacramento searching for answers.

As Fox pointed out, players in the NBA or any sports league have to constantly deal with criticism or drama on social media. Given that, Sacramento’s recent skid likely doesn’t have anything to do with what Bagley’s father decided to put on Twitter.

With that being said, Fox and the Kings are desperate to get back in the win column in their next matchup with the Chicago Bulls on Wednesday night. A win could definitely shut out all the unwanted noise once more.
