De’Aaron Fox Named Western Conference Player of the Week

Fox received the honor for the third time in his career.

The NBA announced Monday that De'Aaron Fox was named the Western Conference Player of the Week. The Sacramento Kings followed with a release about the news. Over the week in question, Fox averaged 25 points, 8.0 assists, and 3.7 rebounds per game while leading the Kings to a 3-0 record for the week.

From the Kings:

Fox earns the honor of Western Conference Player of the Week for the third time in his career and the first time during the 2022-23 season. He is the third player in franchise history to earn three or more Player of the Week awards, only trailing Chris Webber (7) and DeMarcus Cousins (5).

Notably, Tyrese Haliburton was named the Eastern Conference Player of the Week. Fox's former backcourt mate led the Pacers to a 3-0 record for the week while averaging 21.0 points, 11.0 assists, and 4.0 rebounds per game.

The announcement highlights that for all the debate and discussion around the Haliburton trade for Domantas Sabonis, the trade truly was a win-win scenario. Fox and Haliburton have thrived without each other, and both teams are in a much better position than they were before the trade. It's horrible news for sports talk shows that constantly need to debate winners and losers of each transaction, but it's a best-case scenario for the teams in any trade where draft picks aren't involved.

Congratulations to De'Aaron and Tyrese!

I’m afraid that less goo is not an option.

It’s so nice to see the Kings returning to NBA relevance.

Guys believe that Vivek has relinquished at least some control to people who know what they’re doing.

Happy for both Fox and Hali.

That photo looks like Bagley is wailing to his daddy on the sideline “Daddy, Fox looks really scary right now”.

I did not appreciate fully enough how De’Aaron, like Davion, is a true professional, determined continually to improve mastery of his craft.

What was missing before was coaching to help him (leading to his wasting an off-season trying to become muscle-bound).

Nice to see the NBA get it right, and it doesn’t seem as though anyone has figured out how to prevent Fox from getting damned near anything he wants. The number of almost-leisurely layups he’s getting is so much fun to watch. He just decides he’s done with the defender and is at the rim in a flash. I’m having such a good time watching him play with other talented teammates.
