Two former Kentucky stars garnered negative attention Friday night after profanity-filled postgame interviews. One looks exponentially worse than the other.
Nerlens Noel’s postgame interview could actually be considered a “postgame interview.” The Philadelphia 76er was disappointed following a game where he only played eight minutes. His grievance is justifiable, and he kept his composure throughout, except for a few “s***.”

However, what DeMarcus Cousins did is hard to defend.
As the media entered the King’s locker room, Cousins confronted Sacramento Bee columnist Andy Furillo. Furillo penned a column following Cousins’ night club incident with Matt Barnes.

Cousins did not answer questions from the media until Furillo was removed from the locker room.
The executive editor of The Sacramento Bee did not hold back in an editorial against Cousins‘ “grossly unprofessional behavior, and rightfully so. Of all the things Cousins has done, this video is the first that I can not defend.
