Mike Dunleavy Jr. has fired back at comments made toward him by DeMarcus Cousins following Monday's game against the Kings.Namely, the fact that Cousins called Dunleavy "a clown" during a postgame interview.Dunleavy's response via Nick Friedell of ESPNChicago.com:"He called me a clown?” Dunleavy said after Tuesday night’s win over the Phoenix Suns. “I mean, I’d like to respond but clowns can’t talk. So (I can) mime or (give him) some animal balloons or something. Oh man.“That’s the epitome of the pot calling the kettle black,” Dunleavy added. “But honestly I’ve never been called that before. I guess there’s a first time for everything. I don’t have much to say about him or that.”“I think his reputation speaks for itself,” Dunleavy said. “He’s got a short fuse and is easily irritated so you can’t really breathe on the guy without him flipping out. That kind of stuff happens, he’s susceptible to that and probably will be for the rest of his career.”First off, I wasn't aware that clowns cannot talk. Most of the ones I've begrudgingly encountered can and do, much to my chagrin. Nevertheless, it was another shot fired in the ongoing feud between Dunleavy and Cousins. There figures to be more in the future, too. Stay tuned.Via Pro Basketball Talk
