De’Aaron Fox is trolling Knicks fans and it’s fantastic

I suspect a less-than-friendly welcome the next time Fox plays in Madison Square Garden.

It started simple enough. De'Aaron Fox represented the Kings in the NBA Draft Lottery, and shared a reaction when the Knicks fell to the 8th pick.

It was similar to the reactions from the rest of basketball Twitter when the Knicks fell, but then Knicks fans started reacting to it, so Fox kept going.

As Knicks fans kept going, Fox even tried to explain that he didn't set out to attack the Knicks.

But Knicks fans kept going, so Fox took it up a notch.

What's great about New Yorkers is that they're convinced everyone wants to live in New York. What's great about Knicks fans is they think everyone wants to play for the Knicks, despite years of evidence to say otherwise. Heck, even Knicks reporters think this is some sort of jealousy.

Imagine thinking anyone would be jealous that they aren't playing for the Knicks. Hilarious.

Oh man, two comically shitty franchises, their players, and fans sniping at each other just comes off as pathetic to me.

The Knicks are terrible. Like all-world terrible. They’ve also been to the playoffs 3 times since the last Kings appearance.

I know talking shit is part of the game and for a lot of people a big part of the fun of it. But when the terrible guy at the pick-up game that people are more afraid of getting injured by than losing to starts trash talking it’s just sad.

Exactly. I’d rather get back to our conversation about how the Kings can actually get good someday. What do you think Fox’s trade value is?

I think there’s a chance we could absolutely fleece the Knicks.

You were looking at me when you said this:

“…the terrible guy at the pick-up game that people are more afraid of getting injured by than losing to…”

I’m here for it. The Magic and the Wizards need to get in on this, too.

I wonder how we would react if some Knick player would do something similar about the Kings.
Probably very gracious and with a great sense of humor.

As I recall, we were not gracious at all, but some of us were funny as all hell.

Or thinking that people actually want to live in NYC.

Gross.

NYC is a great city. I love visiting. At this point in my life I have zero interest in living there. College and/or just after maybe.

“Sacramento is boring” is a crutch for the lazy and unimaginative. Someone pays that guy money for writing like that?
