Kings' Fox blasts ESPN's Elhassan for disrespectful comments

Kings

De'Aaron Fox isn't having any of ESPN's Amin Elhassan's shade. 

During a recent taping of The Jump, Elhassan made a comment about Ja Morant, saying that the Memphis Grizzlies guard "Is who De'Aaron Fox thinks he is."

The segment was posted on Instagram and then things got a little spicy.

Fox, who was tagged in the post, responded with some harsh words for the ESPN personality.

"Boys a b---h and everybody can tell him I said that," Fox fired out in the comments section of the post.

Elhassan responded with another dig, "apologize for hurting your feelings. An afternoon at Chuck E Cheese on me as soon as your season's over....May 17th?"

Never one to allow someone else the last word, Fox responded, "ion get hurt by comments. Especially when I don't know your name. Just don't do disrespect."

For the record, Fox torched Morant in their matchups last season. The Kings went 3-1 against the Grizzlies and the one loss came just four days after Fox returned from a severe ankle sprain and he still outplayed Morant.

Morant is an incredible talent and he's also two years behind Fox in development. Both guards are on the rise in the Western Conference and should have some spirited battles moving forward.
