According to NBA’s David Aldridge, a couple of players on the Sacramento Kings didn’t take too kindly to Cousins’ apology.
The team was surprised when Cousins showed up for practice on Christmas Eve, thinking the suspension was indefinite. Upon his arrival, “the Christmas spirit was gone,” said the league source who is familiar with the Kings. And there was not much sympathy for him afterward when Cousins tried to apologize.
“When he apologized to the team, two players stood up and said ‘we’ve heard this bull (bleep) before,” the source said. “‘You’re either going to be with us, or you’re not. We don’t want to hear any more excuses.”

DETROIT -- DeMarcus Cousins is a very talented NBA player. That doesn't mean the Pistons should try to get him.
Cousins was chosen by the Sacramento Kings with the fifth overall pick in the 2010 NBA Draft, two slots ahead of Greg Monroe. Because the two play the same position and the Pistons were interested in Cousins back then, people often link the two players.
