De'Aaron Fox is a rising star. One season after being the No. 5 overall pick in the 2017 NBA Draft, the young point guard has the Kings in position to possibly end a 12-season playoff drought.
He's winning Sacramento's heart with his play on the court, but with his food takes? Not so much.
Fox, who grew up in Texas, isn't a fan of the key to California's heart -- In-N-Out Burger. He reitirated his opinion over NBA All-Star Weekend, too, and stuck to that take Tuesday.

It’s still trash 🗣 https://t.co/TqEqQDEr9Q
Kings rookie Harry Giles, a North Carolina native, agreed with his teammate.

But how do Sacramentans feel? Mostly about how you'd expect if you understand the greatness of this burger. CBS Sacramento went to a local In-N-Out, and fans clearly weren't with Fox this time.
I want to go on record that @swipathefox is correct in that there are better burgers elsewhere. But I went to In-N-Out and quickly learned In-N-Out stans > Kings fans. 🤦🏾♂️ @CBSSacramento pic.twitter.com/TDCK8stEzd— Marshall Harris (@mharrisonair) February 20, 2019
"He shouldn't be on the Kings anymore," one fan jokingly said.
There's only one solution to this mess you've created, De'Aaron. Keep doing your thing on the court, and leave the In-N-Out takes to the rest of us. Or just let me eat the burgers for you.
Now I want a Double-Double. Who cares if it's not even 8 a.m. yet?
