DeMarcus Cousins Rips Teammates & Says He’s Tired of The ‘F*cking Excuses’
Sacramento Kings big man DeMarcus Cousins is not a man you want to upset. He speaks his mind whenever he feels.
When he’s not confronting reporters, he’s ripping his teammates for their poor play. He did that once again after the team lost by 14 points at home to the Memphis Grizzlies on Saturday.
“At the end of the day, it comes down to you just having some type of pride, dignity in stopping your man,” Cousins told reporters. “That’s what it comes down to. Forget a scheme, forget a rotation — one-on-one, I’m going to make sure I stop my man. I’m not going to let this guy drive past me or into get in the lane and create something for somebody else.
“At the end of the day, that’s what it comes down to and until we accept that and hold ourselves accountable . . . at the end of the day, that’s what it comes down to. So until we’re ready to buckle down and do that, guys are going to continue to kill us from behind the 3-point line, guys are going to continue to get in the paint and get what they want. Teams are going to come in here and run us over.”
“Like I’ve been saying, it’s on us if we want to change this thing around,” he said. “That’s it. I’m tired of these f—ing excuses. It’s on us.”
Plan and simple, the man just wants to win.
