After nearly breaking down in tears in front of a group of fans last night, DeMarcus Cousins just released an emotional farewell letter to Sacramento, promising fans that just because he’s with the New Orleans Pelicans now, he will never forget the city that was his home for almost seven years:

Words can't even express how hard it is for me to have to leave the city of Sacramento and all of the amazing people that I have met while out here. I gave it my all for you and you gave it right back. The most amazing fans on the planet and I just want you to know that your support has meant everything to me. It's hard to believe that it was seven years ago that this young kid from Alabama showed up in Sacramento scared and not knowing a soul. As I look back upon my time here, I wouldn't trade it for anything. I have met so many amazing people, many of whom went out of their way to make me feel right at home from day one. Each and every one of you have played such an important part in my life and helping me become the person I am today. I don't just consider you all as fans, you all are my family…and a couple thousand miles aren't going to change a thing. Thank you Sacramento. #LoyaltyisLove

Leaving fans in Sacramento must have been tough, but Boogie sure looked happy when he stepped of the private plane in Nola:

This picture of Boogie reading the New Orleans paper on the plane from his manager Andrew Rogers is also very cool:

Here’s to a clean slate.
