We all know DeMarcus Cousins has had a challenging year with the Sacramento Kings, but give him credit for not letting his frustrations show. On Thursday, Cousins spoke with the media during practice. As you can see, he was enthusiastic, upbeat, courteous and gave extremely thorough responses.
But seriously, how sick of Sacramento is this guy? Cousins missed the last two games as he was serving a suspension from the team following his halftime exchange with head coach Keith Smart last week. Earlier this month, he said he has absolutely no confidence in his game. Not only has he lost control of his temper at moments like this, but he also sounds completely depressed.
Obviously, it is time for a change of scenery. The problem is Cousins is too talented and has too much baggage. The only way Sacramento could get a team to trade for him is if they practically gave him away for free. Given how much they have invested in the former Kentucky star, that would be extremely painful to do.
