DeMarcus Cousins Reacts to Rumors

November 15, 2010

DeMarcus Cousins is feeling like Tupac as of right now. Feels like the media is out to get him. In my opinion, Cousins just needs to focus on the game. Let the haters hate.

From Sacramento Blog Hardcourt Mayhem:

After practice today, Kings rookie center DeMarcus Cousins was asked about the negative portrayal of him in the national media over the last few days. He stood in tall and answered the criticism:

It’s bull. You haven’t heard it from us. It’s like me saying Tupac is alive so go write a story on that. I mean it’s rumors. You see us in here. You see us in here and everybody gets along. They said I had a fight with Truck, me and Truck work out everyday before the game so I mean, it’s rumors.

Cousins on whether what happens in the locker should stay in the locker room:

Yeah, I am. We’re a team and also a family and families have problems and they go through things. The rumors that got put out there, they’re ridiculous.

DeMarcus was not specifically asked, nor did he answer if he was fined during the pre-season as reported by both Marc Stein and Sam Amick.

For what it is worth, I have seen him in the practice facility every day the Kings have held practice for the last six weeks and I have not seen DeMarcus Cousins have an issue with anyone of his teammates or coaches. There are plenty of times where we are not allowed to see the team in action but I have yet to see residual effects of an altercation when we are allowed in.

I will have more on today’s practice in a few, including quotes from coach Westphal.
