"It's been extremely gratifying," Fox said of sharing this experience with other freshmen that have been drafted. "I've known Jayson [Tatum] since the fourth grade and man, I'm speechless right now. We're living out our dreams together." "I can't even describe it, like I said. I'm extremely happy, I'm finally where I wanted to be, but like they said all week, the work is just beginning."

How does Fox expect his speed to translate to the next level? He drew a familiar comparison. "A lot of the comparisons are to John Wall, and you saw him and how he was competing in the playoffs so if I'm able to use my speed the way he was, speed kills and you can't really teach it." As you may have noticed, De'Aaron honored his mother, a 21-year breast cancer survivor, with the lining of his jacket: "It's breast cancer signs. My mom is actually a 21-year breast cancer survivor, so that's just something for her." ESPN tried to pull away from the interview, but De'Aaron was having none of it, interrupting to thank his sponsor, JC Penney, for dressing him for the night.
