Fourth-quarter Fox voted NBA Clutch Player of the Year


As if it wasn't obvious enough, De'Aaron Fox officially was named the most clutch player in the NBA. 

The Kings point guard won the first annual Kia Clutch Player of the Year award Tuesday night for his stellar 2022-23 season.

Fox received 460 total points with 91 first-place votes, one second-place vote and two third-place votes. The other two finalists -- Miami Heat forward Jimmy Butler and Chicago Bulls forward DeMar DeRozan -- received 104 and 80 points, respectively.

Fox was a shoo-in for the award after leading the league in clutch scoring with 194 total points in crunch time on 52.9 percent shooting from the field and 31.8 percent from 3-point range.

Safe to say the choice was quite obvious.

Next on his list is an NBA championship.
