Big Blue Nation, the De’Aaron Fox to Los Angeles talk is gaining steam outside of our own conversations.
Today, Andrew Sharp, a writer for Sports Illustrated, wrote a piece called, “The Lakers Should Draft De’Aaron Fox, Not Lonzo Ball,”Â and it says everything we’ve been thinking. (And what I wrote earlier this week.)
In short, Sharp wrote that Ball is overrated because he is always in the news, and Fox is the better fit for the Lakers. Here, have a short excerpt from the article:
The Lakers should take De’Aaron Fox. He is worlds better on defense. His jumper remains a work in progress, but his speed will allow him to drive defenses crazy in the meantime.Â He plays incredibly hard, and with his athleticism, it feels like he’s only scratching the surface of what he’ll beÂ in five years.

Read more and pass it along to whoever you think needs to read it to keepÂ the Fox-to-LA movement going. It’s still very unlikely the Lakers pass on the hometown celebrity, but if we keep the debateÂ alive, maybe Magic Johnson will wise up and take Fox to run his team.
