"I’ve tried it all. It’s just not good.”
Sacramento Kings rookie point guard De'Aaron Fox recently sat down for a Q&A session with Rolling Stone, wherein the fifth overall pick in the NBA Draft discussed a range of subjects including his favorite video games, the first thing he bought after signing his contract, and his favorite fast food spots.
Speaking on the latter, Fox made some inflammatory remarks about In-N-Out Burger which will not be well received by fans for the California fast food chain.
During Fox's Q&A with Rolling Stone, he addressed In-N-Out Burger.
I heard you’re really into breakfast food. Have you found your favorite brunch spot in Sacramento yet?
Yeah, but I can’t tell you because then people are going to meet me there. All I gotta say, you can tell everybody that lives in the state of California this: In-N-Out is not good.
What’s your beef with In-N-Out Burger?
Their burgers are overrated. They’re OK.
Even Animal Style?
Yes. People always say, you haven’t tried this. You haven’t tried that. I’m like, “Yeah, I looked up the secret menu. I’ve tried it all. It’s just not good.”
Fox, 19, also told Rolling Stones about the first thing he purchased after signing his contract, and discussed his love for video games, including NBA 2K.
Check out some of his responses below, at peep the full Q&A right here.
What was the first thing you bought when you signed your contract?
I don't know, I don't make huge purchases. I guess you could say a car. I needed a car out here, so that'd probably be the first. I got a Tesla.
Plenty of people like to play video games, but you're really into it. When did you realize it was more than a hobby?
Honestly, it takes me away from basketball and you don't have to think too much while you do it, so that's one thing. It's always just been fun for me. I wouldn't necessarily say it's an escape – just because I have fun with it – but it keeps me busy. It's something to do.
Who's your favorite player to play with in NBA 2K18?
Myself, right now.
With that 77 rating?
Yep. I've had triple doubles, 40-pieces. As long as I know how to play with him, that's alright.
