When I first caught a glimpse of De’Aaron Fox in this game, I didn’t quite realize who I was looking at. What happened to his big poofy hair thing? Wait, don’t answer that. I know what happened to the poofy hair thing: it got turned into braids. Braids parted down the middle.
I’m not going to pretend that I know what’s in style or what it’s not in style. My knowledge of hairstyles pretty much stops at “If you’re white and you want to slay absolute poon you have to get a topknot and a gigantic furry beard.” People with more insight than me can comment on whether Fox’s hair is an embarrassing mistake or if it’s actually really hip. I will defer to their opinions.
But forget about his hair for a minute (I know, it’s hard, I’m still thinking about it while I type this). De’Aaron Fox just got the first double-double of his young career. He got ten assists one other time way back in October, but only scored nine points so it wasn’t a double-double. This is, by any definition of the term, a real life double-double. Eleven points. Ten assists. Only six rebounds away from the trip-dub. Somewhere in Sacramento right now, George Hill is composing a tweet with about a hundred angry emojies.
