With the NBA regular season coming to an end, millions of basketball fans' eyes are directed toward another tournament at the moment. NCAA March Madness attracts tens of millions of viewers each year but Sacramento Kings star guard De'Aaron fox is not a fan of it.

Talking before Friday night's game against the Phoenix Suns, the All-Star player said that he doesn't like watching the college tournament at all.

"I kind of flip through college games, I can't watch a full college game. It's hard. The shotmaking is obviously not at the pro level, the refs are bad, a lot of coaching is really bad. I can't stand it," Fox told Matt George from ABC10.

Fox was named to the All-Star team for the first time this season, averaging 25.3 points, 4.2 rebounds, 6.1 assists, and 1.2 steals per game. Together with Domantas Sabonis, the duo has transformed the Kings into one of the better offensive teams in the league.

With 44 wins and 29 losses, the Kings are currently third in the Western Conference. If the Kings win their matchup against the Utah Jazz Saturday night and both the Suns and the Los Angeles Clippers lose theirs, the franchise will clinch a playoff spot for the first time since 2006.
