Cousins’ Anger Issues Getting Worse
DeMarcus Cousins has anger management issues. It’s one of the key reasons he was available to the Kings with the fifth overall selection in 2010. The Kings knew it when they drafted him and they hoped as he matured that it would get better as he had success in the NBA.
The reality of the situation is all of the losing and constant upheaval in Sacramento have made the problem worse, not better.
Cousins’ latest verbal tirade at head coach Keith Smart is supposedly water under the bridge now. The two sides have talked through the issue and Cousins has pledged to be a better team mate.
The problem with that is this wasn’t Cousins’ first or second outburst, and it’s certainly not an isolated incident kind of thing. This is who Cousins is, for better or for worse.
