Earlier today we told you about DeMarcus Cousins’ locker room tirade. Well, things have only gotten more interesting since then.
Cousins manned up and apologized for going berserk, attributing his outburst to their sluggish 1-7 start.
“It is no secret that we are all frustrated with losing – me more than anyone. I let my frustrations get the best of me in the locker room after the San Antonio loss – that is my bad. For the record, my frustration is not about any one person or player or coach. There is no one person to blame. All of us are accountable. My frustration is that we are 1-7 simple as that.”
Even though many may take that apology to Yahoo’s Marc Spears as BS to save face, that sounds like it came directly from Boogie. I think we can all agree that being 1-7 would suck after kicking so much ass at UK. However, that wasn’t the entirety of this evening’s soap opera.
After Cousins went off, Karl wanted to suspend Cousins for two games according to the Sacramento Bee. Vlade Divac was NOT having it. The GM said Karl did not have the authority, then went back to Marc Spears to say that he completely empathized with Cousins and that if there were any disciplinary actions, “whatever I do, as far as I know, will stay in house.”
To make the Suicide Squad’s story even better, USA Today is reporting that Karl could be fired within the week.
We’re only eight games into this NBA season and the Kings have already turned into an episode of “As the World Turns” (I did that one for you, Oscar Combs).
