De’Aaron Fox’s Toughest Post-Draft Question came from an SI for Kids Reporter

Henry Mode (right) brought the heat, via @SIKids.

De’Aaron Fox has looked into cameras and answered countless questions for weeks about the NBA Draft.  Once it was over, his most difficult question came from a kid.

In the post-draft press room, Henry Mode of Sports Illustrated for Kids asked him what many others were thinking, but too afraid to ask: “You are going onto a rebuilding team, will it be frustrating for you to not be winning games in your first year, where you have to adjust from being on a great winning program like Kentucky?”

Big J journalists have dished out unwarranted criticism for kid reporters in the past, but Fox responded like a professional.

    Professional question, professional answer – and it probably made that kid’s YEAR.

    Well done.

      I think Fox’s rounds in the sports newsrooms have been utterly impressive. I hope he thinks about broadcasting at some level once he is done playing.

    I would rather have a room full of kids ask questions than a room full of crybaby adults, which makes up most of the press corps these days.

    Kudos to UK’s communications team. The young men that swing through Lexington on their way to the NBA are ALL well spoken and sound intelligent. You can tell they are “well groomed” to be in the spotlight.
