The second-year man has claimed that he’s the fastest player in the entire NBA. In an interview with Chris Haynes of Yahoo Sports, Fox shared that people have been debating on who’s the fastest person in the league. But whenever he watches game film, he concludes that he’s the fastest.
“People debate it all the time,” Fox told Yahoo Sports. “[Debating if I’m one of the] top three or four fastest players in the league. Nah, I’m not up there. I’m No. 1. … I be watching film and I be looking at my feet and I be like, ‘Man, there’s no way people think I’m not the fastest person.’”
He even believes that he’s faster than John Wall of the Washington Wizards and Russell Westbrook of the Oklahoma City Thunder.
“I’m faster than John Wall,” the fifth pick in the 2017 NBA draft told Yahoo. “I’m faster than John. Russ is extremely explosive. I’m faster than Westbrook. … If we’re talking about from baseline to baseline with the ball in my hands, I’m definitely the fastest person in the league.”
Fox’s claims are certainly up for debate. Maybe a race should be organized between the three. But certainly, the clip above is good proof that Fox is one hell of a speedster.
