The Kings Craziness Continues

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).

    Come on Big Cuz. How many coaches are you going to have to go through before you realize you may be the problem? It’s time to grow up. Don’t let your issues keep you from being one of the greatest NBA players of all time.

      I have to disagree with you. George Karl strated alienating Boogie as soon as he was hired. He immediately began trying to get the Kings to trade Cousins. What kind of coach wants to get rid of the best player on the team?? This is especially true because Boogie is still under a contract from the prior salary cap (it just went up significantly). If the Kings traded Boogie they wouldn’t be able to get anywhere near his value to them in return. Long story short, they would pay more for a worse player.

    Just stay away from our coach, Vlade.

    Sacramento is a fire storm… Their management is a joke and bringing in George Karl was a colossal mistake, as we are now witnessing… Divac will absolutely try and get Cal, but I honestly just don’t see Cal leaving UK (yeah, i’m biased – so what?).. Hope Sacramento can get it figured out. Boogie is my favorite UK player under Cal and I would love to see him excel, but they’ve got to get that organization tightened up before that will happen.
