HANG TIME HEADQUARTERS – We’re doing our very best to resist the urge to jump to conclusions about Kings rookie center DeMarcus Cousins.
Really, we are trying to give the young fella the benefit of the doubt in his latest scrape. But he’s making it so tough. Instead of letting his solid play do all the talking for him, Cousins continues to live up to the pre-Draft hype that labeled him a monster talent with monster baggage.
After having running afoul of coach Paul Westphal‘s rules earlier this season, Cousins went off on teammate Donte Greene for not passing him the ball at the end of Friday night’s loss to Oklahoma City. Greene passed it to Tyreke Evans, who wound up missing a 3-pointer that could have won the game. Depending on what version of the story you believe, what transpired after the game was downright ridiculous.
