Video: Kings star De’Aaron Fox is all in on Sacramento
It’s clear that Sacramento Kings guard De’Aaron Fox is all in on the city, as shown by his recent comments in a video for The Players’ Tribune.
The Kings are off to a 15-13 start this season, with Fox playing a huge role in the team’s success through the first 28 games due to his versatile skill set. He’s currently averaging 18.1 points, 7.6 assists, and 1.5 steals per game, and that has made him an invaluable asset for Dave Joerger and his staff.
Of course, Fox is also in an invaluable asset for the entire city of Sacramento, which is more than obvious after his incredible praise for the fans during this video:

This is the kind of mindset that you want from one of the most important members of the franchise, and Fox undoubtedly earned himself even more fans after these comments.
It has been a trying last decade or so for the Kings, but their strong start to this season may help build some confidence moving forward.
Fox and company have won five of their last seven games, and although Friday night’s 130-125 loss to the Golden State Warriors wasn’t ideal, there were stretches in that game that showed just what this Sacramento team is capable of when it’s clicking.
The Kings will now prepare for back-to-back road games, starting with Sunday’s matchup against the Dallas Mavericks. After that, they’ll hit the road once again to take on the Minnesota Timberwolves Monday night.
Luckily, the Kings will get a break from the road following those two games, as they’ll get three straight at home before Christmas.
