De’Aaron Fox is not a fan of media availabilities

Fox kept things honest with reporters on Tuesday night.

Things got ugly on Tuesday night for the Sacramento Kings as they had a big game against the Dallas Mavericks. The Mavericks blew the Kings out, and they moved ahead of them in the standings with the win as well. The final score was 132-96, and Dallas is now in possession of sixth place in the West, and they would avoid the play-in if the season ended today. One Kings player that spoke to the media after the game was De’Aaron Fox, but he doesn’t seem to enjoy those post game pressers.

After the game, a reporter noted that De’Aaron Fox typically addresses the media, even if the Kings lose. It seemed like maybe something Fox enjoys or something that was important to him, but it turns out that that is not the case.

“I don’t get s**t out of that,” Fox said, according to a tweet from Matt George. “I don’t get nothing out of that. They ask me, I do it.”

Fox also went on to note that his teammates don’t care if he does it either. He does not enjoy it, even if the team won.

“They don’t give a f**k if I come up here and talk, I’ll tell you that,” Fox added. “If Michael or Shannon ask me, I do it. I get no joy in this after a win or a loss. My team doesn’t care if I come up here in a blowout win or a blowout loss.”

De’Aaron Fox left it all out there with the media. Perhaps he’ll be in a better mood on Friday night if the Kings can knock off the Mavericks.
