DeMarcus Cousins Reacts After Ronnie 2K Insults Him on Live Stream

So you know that whole NBA 2K20 video game tournament that the NBA helped organize and is scheduled to air on Friday? The one that was literally announced 24 hours ago? Well, it’s already turning into must-see TV.

During a live stream on Tuesday night, Ronnie Singh, a.k.a. Ronnie 2K – who is basically the face of the NBA2K franchise – was caught calling former Kentucky player and current Los Angeles Lakers center DeMarcus Cousins a “d–k”.

“Cousins is such a d–k like I can see him being like ‘I don’t wanna f—–g do this’,” Singh said without knowing he was live streaming at the time. “Not to mention his matchup would be annoyed too.”

Cousins took to Twitter to post his response.

What made this even juicier was Ronnie 2K’s apology tweet basically begging Cousins not to drop out of the tournament so he doesn’t lose his job.

ESPN will air the NBA 2K20 tournament on Friday starting at 7 p.m. Cousins has been tabbed as an 11-seed and will face Cleveland Cavaliers center Andre Drummond in the first round. That is if Cousins can receive the proper equipment in time or if he even wants to continue at this point. Honestly, I hope he does, and I hope there is video of Cousins and Ronnie 2K interacting through a Zoom chat and Cousins destroys him.

But as always on April 1, consider that maybe this is all an elaborate April Fool’s joke? Or a marketing ploy to drive ratings? Either way, I’m in. I am desperate for content.

    He’s not the current Lakers center. They waived him… what feels like months ago but really was only about a month ago.

    That apology was not nearly good enough. You can’t call someone that and attack their character and expect to get away with it that easily. What a chump.

      Gotta love those non-apologies where they lie and say they feel the opposite of what they said. Just own it, apologize and move on like an adult.

    Maybe scrap the 2K tournament and just have a cage match with Boogie and this guy? On second thought, they need something that’s going to last more than 30 seconds to fill some time.
