De’Aaron Fox and Malik Monk make up an elite Kentucky backcourt, but how do they stack up against others during Calipari’s time at Kentucky? DeMarcus Cousins said watching Fox and Monk is like having deja vu all over again.
“The way they play together is like watching John (Wall) and Eric (Bledsoe), all over again,” Cousins told ESPN’s Jeff Goodman yesterday.
In a one-on-one game, Cousins is still taking his guys, but as a unit, Cousins believes the Fox and Monk combo is better.
“Individually, no,” Cousins added whether Monk and Fox are better. “Together? I think they are. They play with great chemistry.”
Based on the numbers from the young season, Fox and Monk are outscoring them by a wide margin. Wall and Bledsoe averaged just over 27 points per game in the 2009-10 season. Through 14 games, Fox and Monk are 11 points better at 38 per game.
