DeMarcus Cousins implores Kings teammates to 'act like you care'


The Sacramento Kings lost again on Thursday -- their 10th loss in 11 games -- to a Mavericks team missing Dirk Nowitzki and Rajon Rondo. Now, DeMarcus Cousins is fed up.

Cousins vented to reporters after the game, saying this is "absolutely" the most frustrated he's been in his five-year career in Sacramento. Cousins is averaging career-high numbers -- 24 points and 12.5 rebounds -- but since the controversial firing of head coach Mike Malone on Dec. 15, the Kings have been in a free fall. The Kings were 11-13 at that point and have only won six games since then.

Even on Thursday, Cousins did his part with a game-high 23 points and 11 rebounds, although he struggled with the Mavericks' relentless double teaming that forced him into six turnovers. But only one of his teammates scored double figures -- Rudy Gay had 11 on 2-11 shooting -- and the game was a blowout for most of the fourth quarter.

Cousins said this to ABC News 10:

It comes down to playing hard, man. Get some pride, just have some self respect. Act like you care. That's what it's coming down to. It's the same team; the same team that was winning [early this season], the same guys in the locker room. Ain't nothing changed. The attitudes with these guys, everyone in the room, that's the only thing that has changed."

Cousins believes the team can turn it around, saying the Kings understand buying into the frustrations is "only going to make the situation worse."

"We're the same team," he said. "We're the same team that everyone was praising early in the year. We're the same team. So yes, we can do. It's just a matter of us changing our attitudes."

As for himself, Cousins said he only sees his own play as a way to influence his teammates and recognizes he can do even better in that area, too.

"Only thing I can do is lead by example," he said. "Keep trying to lead, keep leading by example. My [body] language has been bad as well, I need to straighten it out as well."

So who is the main culprit in Boogie's rant?? I'm thinking it's Rudy Gay. He doesn't have that dog inside of him...makes him look lazy on the court. Its gotta be Rudy and his boneheaded TO's.

I wouldn't be surprised if it's rudy but I'm thinking its Derrick Williams. He never struck me as a guy who took being a pro basketball player seriously. There's a reason he was playing summer league going into his 4th year and not even dominating at that.

David Aldridge ‏@daldridgetnt 13m13 minutes ago
Kings' talks with @CoachKarl22 picked up once Vivek Ranadive feared he'd lose his top choice to Orlando, per source.

So let me get this straight: Vivek could have hired Karl at any point since firing Malone (could have even replaced Malone with Karl), but sat on it...why, exactly? Punting on this season and waiting for the off-season to make a move? Everyone knows Karl is on the short list of mid-season coaching replacements, so if you're considering it at any point, you might as well do it before another team comes along.

PDA and Vivek probably wanted that top 10 protected pick instead of being on the outskirts and losing it.

Quote:
Karl's personal past with a number of influential members in and around the Kings organization remains relevant as well, as he previously coached Kings advisor Chris Mullin and has history with the two agents who represent franchise centerpiece DeMarcus Cousins as well. Cousins' day-to-day agent, Jarrin Akana, worked with Karl in Denver and was re-assigned from assistant coach to scout when Karl took over for coach Jeff Bzdelik in 2005. Dan Fegan, Cousins' lead agent, represented Karl's son, Coby, as a player for years before he was eventually replaced. That circle, by all accounts, has been against the notion of adding Karl.

To that end, D'Alessandro's ability to change their minds is key here as well. While it appears D'Alessandro is endorsing Karl with or without the support of his team's top player or his representatives, he would prefer to have agreement on that front if Ranadive ultimately approves the hiring. There is some concern within the organization, however, that hiring Karl could create substantive conflict going forward when it comes to Cousins.

I can't believe its come to me secretly rooting for my teams to fail just so ownership looks bad. Should I be ashamed? Because I don't feel that way.

i said that the day after Malone is fired. that i wanted this to blow up in their stupid arrogant faces.  

 

finally it might have gone so bad that they are forced to get their heads out of their *****.

 

mission accomplished?
