De'Aaron Fox continues to charm on ESPN media tour

Mrs. Tyler Thompsonover 4 years


It's been quite a day for De'Aaron Fox, who has appeared on almost every show on the ESPN networks over the past twelve hours. Fox's day began on "Mike and Mike," where he fielded the usual questions about Lonzo Ball, the loss to North Carolina, and what it's like to play for John Calipari. When asked about Foot Locker's Father's Day commercial last week that went viral, Fox said he found Lonzo Ball's deadpan breakdown of his father's antics just as funny as everyone else. "Going into it, I knew Jayson (Tatum), Jonathan (Isaac) and I were going to talk about how our dads did this and that, good things. All they told us was Lonzo is going to go off a list of kind of what his dad’s been doing. I didn’t know how it was going to come out, but when I watched it the first time, I probably watched it 50 times in a row. It was hilarious. He has a sense of humor. I liked it." Next, he made the first of two appearances on "SportsCenter," which I recapped earlier. On "First Take," Fox explained his comments about wanting to shut LaVar Ball up in the Sweet 16 game vs. UCLA and how he believes his game will translate to the next level: At some point, he met up with draft insider Chad Ford, who was absolutely charmed: He also taped an interview for "The Paul Finebaum Show," which will air at 6:30 p.m. Producer John Hayes is hoping this quote gets the #BBN talking: I mean, that's the new normal, right?
