The Kings’ De Aaron Fox said that playing the All-Star Game is “stupid”
Voters did not choose the Sacramento Kings De Allen Fox Participate in the NBA All-Star Game, but if they participate, he will not be very happy.
“If I’m going to be frank, I think it’s stupid. If we have to wear masks and all of this in regular games, what is the point of the All-Star Game? Obviously, money makes the world work, and that is the case. I am not I’m worried if I vote it, so be it. If I am not,” Fox said after the Kings beat the Celtics on Wednesday night.
When asked whether he would vote for the All-Star Game, Fox reminded reporters that he would be fined if he did not participate in the game, and then replied: “Yes, I will participate in the game.”
In his fourth year in the league, Fox averaged 22.3 points, 3.3 rebounds and 6.6 assists per game, but his data was not enough to get him into the West.
Fox is not the only player not interested in the news of the All-Star Game.
Nikola DjokicThe MVP leader of the Denver Nuggets said he would rather take a rest than participate in the game, but this is “honor.”
Ask Nikola Jokic if he wants to participate in ASG or take a break: “I have been an All-Star for the past two years. I am in good health. Rest, take a break, of course,’Where do I sign now? As an AS, it’s an honor. You represent many people to come home, Serbia, Sombor, my family. It’s an honor to be there.”
