In the days leading up to the Jordan Brand Classic in Brooklyn, N.Y., USA TODAY High School Sports will be catching up with various players to talk about their experiences. In this entry, we talk to Cypress Lakes (Katy, Texas) point guard De’Aaron Fox, who has signed to play for Kentucky coach John Calipari.
Yo, what’s up world it’s D. Fox and I’m just getting ready for the Jordan Brand Classic in New York tomorrow!
I’m gonna just let you guys know first off that we’ve been playing NBA 2K in the player’s lounge when we’re away from the court and I’ve definitely been dominating as usual. I’ve been cold at 2K for a while now!
I played Markelle (Fultz) and he wanted to bet me some Jolly Ranchers before the game started and I said cool. Then he said, “Well, what do I get if I win?” I just looked at him and said, “WHAT! That doesn’t make any sense.”
He should’ve known that was never gonna happen. He ended up quitting because I was winning. I’m gonna play Bruce Brown later today. I don’t have any competition!
Of course, like everybody else in the world, we watched Kobe’s last game last night.
We couldn’t believe what he was able to do. It was a great way for him to go out!
This event is how we’re all gonna go out too since it’s the last one we’ll play for high school. I’m definitely ready to go to college, but a part of me doesn’t want to let go of high school.
I just want to go out tomorrow and have fun with my friends then watch us all grow as players on the next level.
While I’m down here I’ve definitely been doing a little recruiting. Marques (Bolden) knows that we want him and I told him that I want him, but it’s up to him.
Wherever he goes is where he goes, but, like I said, I’ve told him that Kentucky is the best school in the country. Can’t go wrong going here!
Aight, we’re back at it with practice now so this is D. Fox checking out; I’m out in New York so you know I’m gonna have fun! Make sure y’all have a blessed day and check us out tomorrow.
