After posting a rather bulked up photo on Instagram, De’Aaron Fox immediately gets contacted by the league’s doping police for a drug test.
De’Aaron Fox has already established himself as one of the brightest young talents in the league. Sure, he is yet to lead his Sacramento Kings to the playoffs, but Swipa has definitely proven to be a great All-Star calibre player.
This past 2020-2021 season was the best campaign of Fox’s young 4-year career. Right after signing a massive $163 million max contract extension during the 2020 offseason, De’Aaron went to record career-highs in points (25.2), field goals made (9.1) and minutes played (35.1).
However, with a poor 31-41 record, Fox and the Kings failed to make the playoffs for a 15th consecutive season. And clearly, that has been bothering Sacramento’s star guard. In order to improve next season, with the aspirations of leading his team to the postseason, Fox has been hitting the gym harder than ever this offseason.
NBA Twitter goes berserk as De’Aaron Fox is called for a drug test after posting bulked photos on Instagram
While some players treat their offseason as a vacation, De’Aaron Fox has been spending their time putting in a serious amount of work hitting the gym.

Clearly, the 6-foot-3 guard isn’t the slender boy he once was when he entered the league.
However, it seems that the 23-year-old maybe worked too hard, as right after posting these rather swole photos on Instagram, Fox got contacted by an NBA doping police for a drug test.

As soon as the details of De’Aaron’s drug test went viral, NBA Twitter went completely berserk.
Because a player gets ripped it warrants a drug test

Surely, the Kings organisation will be happy seeing their star player put in the dedicated work. No doubt, they will be expecting yet another huge, if not huger, level of production out of him.
Will De’Aaron’s insane body-building help him play better next season? Or will Sac-Town not make the playoffs yet again? Well, eager Sacramento fans need to hold their horses for a few weeks before they get to see Fox and the Kings in action.
