De’Aaron Fox Says He’s Best Player in the Draft


De’Aaron Fox has been at the center of conversations across the NBA this weekend as many believe the star point guard has gained traction as the best player in this draft.

Fox sat down with John Jackson of the Associated Press on Friday to discuss an array of topics.

Jackson asked Fox how he felt he stacked up against fellow star point guards, Lonzo Ball and Markelle Fultz. Fox said, “I feel like I’m the best. If they’re drafted above me, I’m cool with it. You have to play basketball at the end of the day.”

We all know about Fox’s epic 39 point performance against UCLA in the sweet sixteen, he told the AP that there was a little extra motivation behind that performance because of Lonzo Ball.

“He’s the consensus No.1 pick, he could be the No.1 pick. I’m just extremely competitive. That’s what I tell everyone. It didn’t matter if it was him or one of the other top picks. I’m competitive, and I came out hot.”

DraftExpress has Fox slated to go #5 to the Orlando Magic while Fultz and Ball are projected to be the first and second picks in the draft.

    This would be news only if Fox had said “there are a lot of better players in this draft than me”
