National Basketball Association prospect De'Aaron Fox joins chorus of anti-LaVar Ball sentiment

National Basketball Association prospect De'Aaron Fox joins chorus of anti-LaVar Ball sentiment

"I'm not really anxious about those guys". Kentucky coach John Calipari noted that Fox didn't necessarily excel at shooting the ball in college - making 25% of buckets beyond the arc - and that's an area where Fox has worked on most. Fox dropped 39 points (13-of-20 from the field) on Ball and the Bruins to lead the Wildcats to an 86-75 win.

"Fox stands at 6'3" weighing 176 which makes him an undersized point guard at the next level. I'm competitive and I came out hot."Part of that competitiveness shows most on the defensive end, where the lengthy guard from Houston believes he's most NBA-ready."I think defensively I probably separate myself", Fox said". Everything you've told me, I've absorbed and used on the court.

The Lakers are looking to find a player that will help them get back to the playoffs for the first time since 2013. Jackson has now worked out in front of Lakers officials twice - meaning Los Angeles is at least seriously considering selecting him. Fultz is expected to meet with the Lakers later this week.

But with the Lakers working out Josh Jackson for a second time following speculative reports about their interest in the Kansas star, you never know.

Most NBA experts expect Fox to be drafted after that threesome, going to Phoenix fourth or Sacramento fifth.

Afghan soldier attacks foreign soldiers, wounding 4
An Afghan soldier opened fire on American soldiers on Saturday, injuring at least seven, the USA military said. A massive attack in April on the same Shaheen base by Taliban militants left scores of Afghan soldiers dead.

Fox said the attention the Balls have drawn to themselves will result in National Basketball Association opponents' resolve to stifle a rookie Ball. "So, we'll be playing". He has been such an overwhelming presence in the media over the last few months that you're nearly forced to take a stance on him, unless you just stay off social media altogether.

He made just 24.6 percent of his three-pointers at Kentucky. Lonzo Ball had one workout with the Lakers, that was ground zero of the "out of shape" talks, but has had a chance to redeem himself in front of the Lakers' brass today.

Fox's name might be the most surprising of the group.

The team could also decide to move up or down in the draft depending on their admiration of Markelle Fultz, or who they think will remain available later in the early lottery.
