This year’s NBA Draft has one of the best point guard hauls in recent memory and teams could end up with a franchise guard if they pick any of the top five point guards in this class. However, most people believe that Washington’s Markelle Fultz is the top choice and UCLA’s Lonzo Ball should be the second. The guy who is largely believed to be the third-best option is Kentucky’s De’Aaron Fox, but he has been gaining steam the past few weeks.
Some have even begun to think he’s overtaking Ball and the Lakers could avoid a lot of headache by taking him rather than Ball and subsequently his dad, LaVar. It looks like Fox is also getting some serious help from another former Wildcat guard who says he could have a better career than both those guys.
John Wall sat down with CSN Mid-Atlantic’s Chris Miller to talk about the draft and explained why he believes Fox will have a better career than the presumed top two picks in the draft.
“A lot of people say it’s bias because he’s from Kentucky, but I think De’Aaron Fox might end up being the best point guard out of that class. He reminds me of myself a lot, just a lefty.”
Wall also said that Fultz is the best player in the draft so it should be made clear that he thinks Fox will have the bigger impact in the long-term and on the league.
