DeAaron Fox

I have been an enthusiastic supporter of Da Fox since the moment he was drafted. He has an amount of hops that gets him up in the ozone with much bigger players. He drives to the basket in ways not seen since the days of Elgin Baylor, Kobe Bryant and Michael Jordan. He is going to set the all-time record for blocks by a point guard. He is a really good defender that continues to get better. He is a good rebounder. I hope his assists go up some. Passing is his only weakness. He turns the ball over with some lazy passes, and sometimes gets caught in the air with no where to go. We saw it at the end of the GS game and in the loss last night to the Suns. He has room for improvement in his passing. He is a hard worker and will get better.

Wow, this is a hot take in so many spots.

All time record for PG blocks?

The leader is Dennis Johnson with 670. That would be 10 years of almost 1 BPG assuming he playing 80% of his games. He's currently averaging .5 blocks per game. That would be 40 a year, so he would have to play like 17 years to beat that.

Bad passer?

He had a bad game. A really bad game, but lets not let hyperbole change what he has done this season. He's 54th in the NBA in ASS/TO ratio, 26th amongst PG's and most listed ahead of him are bench players. I think there were 6 starters above him.
 
Our franchise needs to start a public campaign pointing out that Fox is not getting the calls he has earned as a budding superstar. You have rooks like Luka getting the full Harden treatment out there...at least give Fox some CJ McCollum level respect. That’s all I’m asking. When Fox goes to the hole in the 4th we should expect to get the call when there is contact.

He got smushed by 3 players on one of his last drives that was a foul. Now, it wasn't a good drive, because he went right at 3 guys, but he still drew the foul.

I posted the video clip in the other thread regarding bad calls. The defender is back pedaling but does keep arms straight up. I don't know if it is a foul or not.

Either way, he does not get calls he should.
 
We know Harden would get the whistle there for sure.
Which is baffling. I mean, seriously, between the two which is the more likeable player?

Apparently today’s youth would much rather watch a guy travel all over the court to get off shots. I suppose it’s the eventual effect of 20 years of AND1 mixtape and streetball viewing. They simply think that’s how the game is supposed to be played. It’s quite sad.

As I’ve said before, I can’t name a more unwatchable player than James Harden. Players like him have slowly poisoned the game IMO. But I’m obviously in the minority.

I think you might be surprised to see just how many fans actually agree with you. ;)

I’m not sure you are. It infuriates and lulls most fans to sleep. I think the only people who stomach his playstyle are Rockets fans and because of the results. Yea no championships, but they win and have been contenders for a majority of his tenure there. I’m sure we’d be fine with it here though if we were blessed with the success the Rockets have had the last 5-6 years.

People always make comments like this as though it changes the argument. It doesn't.
