John Wall Goes To See De’Aaron Fox Play
Recent Kentucky commit De’Aaron Fox is often compared to John Wall. Have you seen him play? He’s a nightmare to guard. He creates his own fast break. He may be just as fast as the outlet pass which starts the fast break. He’s a nightmare to try and stay in front of. He has tremendous athleticism. All of these attributes are what Wall possesses. This past Friday, the honor of being compared went a step further! Wall was there in the flesh to watch Fox play.
About the comparison, Fox actually embraces it. He told Slam “everyone calls me John Wall 2.0 — and I like the comparison. Who wouldn’t enjoy being compared to a former No. 1 pick? But right now, I think I shoot much better than he did, at least for high school.”
The center stage was in Cypress, Tx. Fox played his heart out as usual but took an L in front of Wall. Fox would go on to drop 36 points in a 77-74 loss.
