John Wall went to the University of Kentucky, so naturally he is going to look out for his Wildcat brethren. But he insists that is not the only reason why he believes De'Aaron Fox is going to have the best career of the point guards set to join the league in the 2017 NBA Draft.

Fox, Wall says, reminds him of himself. Here is what he told CSN's Chris Miller to explain why he thinks Fox will go on to make a bigger impact in the NBA than Markelle Fultz or Lonzo Ball, the two point guards expected to go first and second overall:

"A lot of people say it’s bias because he’s from Kentucky, but I think De’Aaron Fox might end up being the best point guard out of that class. He reminds me of myself a lot, just a lefty."

That was after Wall said he thinks Fultz is the best player in the draft. So, his distinction is between who is the best player now and who will have the best career. Wall will take Fox in the longrun. 

Fox is expected to go in the top five, so it's not a major stretch. But Fultz and Ball are projected as the clear top two players available. If Fox had the best career, it would be a surprise at this point.
