The Sacramento Kings and their fans can feel comfortable knowing that their point guard in De’Aaron Fox is on a mission to win a championship for their team.
The Sacramento Kings may not be playing in this year’s playoffs, but they are a team that looks to be on the rise.
There are a lot of reasons why the future is bright for the purple and white. But the main one is due to the constant improvement of their young players. The one guy leading the way is second-year pro De’Aaron Fox.
Fox’s Breakout Season
During his sophomore campaign, Fox was excellent for the Kings as he was able to run the team’s fast-paced offense at a high level. As a result, the Kings were one of the more electric squads in the NBA and earned their best seasonal record since 2006.
Individually, Fox had a good season as well as he averaged around 17 points and seven assists per contest while shooting 46% from the court and 37% from the three-point line.
Not Good Enough?
Although Fox and the Kings were able to have a good season, it still seemed like there was unfinished business. Well, at least from Fox’s perspective.
Not too long ago, Fox said how the ultimate goal for the franchise and himself was to win championships and be an All-Star while being with the Kings, which should have fans excited for what the future holds.
Sure, these are just words coming out of Fox’s mouth, but he showed this season that he can back up his words. Not only did he improve statistically as a player, but the effort and energy were also present from the 21-year old and his teammates throughout the season.
In the majority of their games this year, the Kings were playing hard and were competitive against their opponents. Even against the top-tier teams in the league.
It is unknown whether the Kings will become a legit title contender in the next few years, but the team and De’Aaron Fox are doing what they can to bring a championship to Sacramento. This year, Fox took on the role of being the franchise’s guy going forward, and as a result, he embraced the opportunity and led his team to success.
The Sacramento Kings have talked the talk and walked the walk so far, and if they are able to make another leap of improvement next season, their fans can believe that they will be present in the postseason.
