CP3 acts like way more of an immature child with a bad attitude than Cousins does, but poeple will never see that because of Cousins reputation and the special treatment from the league for CP3
I never compared Cousins to CP3 though. That was Rck. I've seen Cousins play a whole lot to stick to what I said especially his first two years. He's calmed down a bit since then. Son use to throw hissy fits on the court at times. Bottom line when it comes to those two, CP3 is a star and Cousins isn't and more importantly CP3 does not have the reputation among refs that Cousins has. Simple as that.
I'm not denying that CP3 whines about calls. I'm not saying Cousins does it more or as bad as him either. I specifically said there's a double standard. Lets not act like this is special treatment just for CP3, this goes for most of the superstars in the league. Cousins is not one of them and with his short time in the league he's already damaged his rep enough where it's safe to say he'll probably never make his way in their good graces. At best he can reach a neutral playing field and favored only against other rookie or bad rep players.
Again, I wasn't the one to bring up Cousins. So I don't really need to go in to why he's treated the way he's treated in the league. Plenty players got problems with the refs. I'm just talking about how yall dudes seem so perplexed by why CP3 can get a pass for barking on a ref like that. This aint me defending everything that is CP3 either, just in that instance. He's one of my fav pgs in the league but I hate his flopping tactics the most. Outright shameful.

I would have loved to see a prime KG and CP3 on my Knicks
