The 2022-23 NBA season has been a sensational one for De’Aaron Fox of the Sacramento Kings.
Not only has he helped lead his team to their highest standing in years, but he was also awarded the NBA Clutch Player of the Year trophy just days ago.
The NBA released a highlight reel of Fox’s work throughout the season and it’s clear to see why he was granted such an honor.

Again and again, Fox has been the guy to seal the deal for his team, putting up and making some of the toughest shots of the season.
He has averaged 25 points, 4.2 rebounds, and 6.1 assists a game this season.
But the numbers can’t accurately sum up what he has brought to his team and the crucial skills he has delivered repeatedly.
He has been with the Kings since joining the league during the 2017-18 season.
However, this is Fox’s biggest year yet and he is being noticed by millions.
Now during his first playoff run, Fox is averaging 31.5 points, 6 rebounds, and 7 assists.
He has been terrific often but fans of the Kings are getting increasingly nervous.
The team had a 2-0 lead over the Golden State Warriors but Stephen Curry and his team dug their heels in, fought back, and tied the series at 2-2.
To make matters even worse, Fox has a finger injury that could impair him for Wednesday’s big game.
Fox confirmed that he was going to show up for the game and play his heart out.
But will this finger injury limit his clutch abilities when they are most needed?NEXT: Mike Brown Comments On Closing Out The Warriors
