Sacramento Kings Star Named 2023 NBA Clutch Player Of The Year

The Sacramento Kings continue to shock the NBA world in 2022/23, as they've taken a 2-0 lead on the defending Champion Golden State Warriors in their first round series, and on Tuesday, their biggest star received some well deserved recognition from the season he just had.

For the first time in NBA history, the league has given out a 'Clutch Player of the Year' award, and now, in an unsurprising landslide victory, De'Aaron Fox has been given the award as the leader of the dominant No. 3 seed Kings.

In clutch time, Fox led the league with 194 points throughout the season, receiving 94 of a possible 100 first-place votes for the award, and it's safe to say that if Sacramento are to make a big run this post-season, they'll need every bit of his clutch play.
