I used to think Rick Fox was just a showfront for the organization but now that I've seen he actually, genuinely wishes well for players is incredible. It's cool that he advocates for eSports as a respected platform of entertainment

What a great guy. Very modest. He has such faith in his team, and has the burden of making the team really great. He didn't have to buy the team, so mad respect. I'm not a basketball guy, I just know he's a major pro. Love Rick Fox, love the video.

Anybody know if Echo Fox is running a R6: Siege team??

I never follow teams in Esports. But this owner here, I like him... I think I will keep an eye out for his team.

Rick fox would make the best Dad, just for the fact that he listened to his son and acknowledged his passion(gaming) and embraced it.

The best thing I like about Rick Fox is how his background puts him as a top person in NBA and instead of shunning the whole esports/gaming industry, he literally made a team to participate in it because he UNDERSTOOD what it actually takes to be apart of the whole esports scene. And when you compare him to others from similar backgrounds and/or media/talk channels, he shows respect versus others who just shame the entire community.
Iron NoBank (1 year ago)
he can appreciate the qualities of top tier players and what makes them so great. it's easy to see after investing a bit of time. Rick has a mindset of championship no matter what he's involved with. it could be competitive hula hooping and the man will develop techniques to be #1.
itachi60001 (2 years ago)
i think this will be the first org ill follow because of the team and not because of the players
Iron NoBank (1 year ago)

Rick Fox is a great owner. I know it's a matter of time before echo fox will be a top 3 team.
Laserjaws (2 years ago)
I mean, just looking at the comments and there is nothing bad or horrible said about him. I love that, for once we can all agree on something, that this guy is a bit of a legend. Hope the team does well next split, I can't imagine how he'll react if they got first place haha
Axel - (2 years ago)
nice champions
xHibachi24x (2 years ago)
I've been a longtime Laker fan ever since I was a kid, and it's not until recently that I started to see just what a standup guy Rick Fox is. I think it's great that the league community has people like him who have the perspective of what players went through so he empathizes with them through their ups and downs. I hope Echo Fox climbs to the top, however I believe the team needs these current times to mature, add chemistry, and help give them perspective to better appreciate how sweet it'll be once they get to the top.
Garrett Clayton (2 years ago)
So I'm comfortable enough with my sexuality to say Rich Fox is the best looking man I've ever seen.

amen brother.
Maxwell .Alvarado (2 years ago)
This is why I am a proud echo fox fan I hope they become a top 4 team one day. Teams disband and flame all because they didn't get first place at worlds. Cough cough im looking at you Fnatic. Other teams are happy just to get 7th place. This is why you should be a team echo fox fan

I grew up watching rick fox on the lakers. I watched him win championships with derek fisher, kobe, oneal, etc. It really excites me knowing an NBA legend is intrigued in the world of League of Legends. He is a great guy and i hope he finds a winning culture in his franchise. #MuchLoveToRickFox #EchoFox #NBAmeetsLoL

Zeiskyte (2 years ago)
I may be disappointed with the team sometimes, but seeing videos like these gives me hope, seeing how invested Rick is in the team. I don't even care if they end in the bottom of the split, these guys seem like a family.
BeefBrisket420 (2 years ago)
rick fox seems like a really great guy and father, but this definitely is a recruitment video.

AsIRecall13 (2 years ago)
Gotta respect Rick. As a father who was inspired by his son, as a player who filled his role and became a humble champion, and as an owner who wants the same for his players. Seems like a great man.

We need more owners like him.
Domingo Torres (2 years ago)
then he did a way worse job than I thought
Aladdin (2 years ago)
he didn't sell anything , they left for free , made their own team. and he is stuck with the shit players that are left
Domingo Torres (2 years ago)
you mean the top 3 CS:GO team that he sold to get one of the worst pro teams in NA?
Aladdin (2 years ago)
reginald on the other hand ... is arrogant and kinda lost his danish csgo lineup cuz of him being a dick to the manager for not doing something he wasn't even supposed to do (not in contract)
Succorum (2 years ago)
Jack is actually alot like this ,he is just more behind the scenes about it , he has some fatherly zest about him ,caring for his players

Ricky Chhun i feel like he is a father figure for gamers
CallumLP (2 years ago)
He seems like a real cool guy, They need a new jungler and a new support to make them a better team . Froggen is great and kieth and KFO are decent .
Emil Andersson (2 years ago)
Can't have BIG supporting. Really can't control his emotions it seems
J Nielsen (2 years ago)
What they need is a better coaching staff - their players are fine mechanically they just need to get better at the tactical part of the game. Having just Cop as their coach isn't going to make them champions.. They definitely need an analyst or two and an authority figure who can speak korean and english for kfo's sake.
Mistah Unknown (2 years ago)
From what he said in that interview, he wants these guys to be champions. I doubt he's kicking any of them at any point in the near future.

jestingle /143/ (2 years ago)
What a great video. Seriously feeling an attachment to Echo Fox all of a sudden. I never really cared about an individual team in LoL before besides rooting for NA but Echo Fox is becoming that team. I think it's because I respect Rick Fox so much now that I've heard him tell part of his story and how he really feels about his team. Dude's probably a beast dad
Deadeye Duncan (8 months ago)
Yeah, I've recently just started watching some of these interviews with Rick. Honestly I'm really glad he's in the scene. He seems fully committed and and invested in the team and his players. He's a great advocate to have to help push esports more and more into the mainstream.
