                            DeAarron Fox is faster than John Wall.

                              Being fast doesn't make you John Wall. Wall has the passing gift that only CP3, LeCute and Rondo have

                                  If your criticism of his D is that he'll be unable to stop Klay and Harden, I think he's gonna be OK.

                                          stop hyping him up over one game against UCLA. All he did was take easy layups. he's another athletic point guard who cant shoot. look at the hype kris dunn, emmanuel mudiay got and now their busts. Malik Monk's 47 against NC was much more impressive

                                            you don't teach playmaking and the competitiveness. He got the mentally to want to go after people.

                                              I love De'Aaron Fox. This is really a fantastic draft class. People from the outside saying Fultz and Ball are miles ahead of the pack are delusional. I think there are 7 legitimate future all stars this year without a lot of separation. Fultz, Ball, Fox, Monk, Smith, Jackson, and Tatum. Of course Im a Knicks fan and theyre picking at 8 :/ haha

                                                  What an insult, I wouldn't want to be compared to John Wall if I was a basketball player, nika is so inconsistent and he ain't even top 5 of good point guards that deliver for their team.

                                                        Really? Ur comparing the wrong point guard in this draft to wall. If there is a player this year like wall then its Dennis Smith.
