Last week, we brought you a clip from the Clippers-Kings game that showed DeMarcus Cousins stopping Isiah Thomas from shaking Chris Paul’s hand after they lost to Los Angeles:
Well, they met again on Friday night, and it turns out DeMarcus Cousins wasn’t feeling any different about his sportsmanship. After knocking J.J. Redick to the ground, Cousins started to walk away when Redick reached to shake his hand and let him know that it was all good. For Cousins, it wasn’t all good:
Honestly, this seems a little childish. It’s different when you lose a game and you don’t want to accept it, but when there is a hard foul, it shows that you guys are just making sure there was no ill intent when it comes to causing an injury.
As you can tell Redick was confused, and so am I. You aren’t a wimp if you give a guy a little hit on the hand to make sure it’s cool, and Cousins hasn’t earned himself a good reputation around the league. If you want to chalk this up to a rivalry, the teams actually have to be competitive in order for their to be one. One team stinks and one team’s a contender. Good job DeMarcus.
