The two have bickered and battled back and forth for years – not only between each other but Cousins with other members of the Clippers as well, including Blake Griffin.
Unlike Cousins, Paul has a reputation around the league as being a good buy – but Cousins isn’t buying it, recently suggesting Cp3 is a cheater:
Cousins maintains a rivalry with the Clippers, and Paul in particular. “It’s just, some players I don’t respect,” Cousins said. “Just their playing style of basketball. I don’t respect it. I feel like it’s basically cheating and I don’t respect a cheater. If that’s your tactic to winning, I don’t respect you.”
Cousins comments likely stem from Paul attempting to pull some woefully hilarious flop charges against the Sacramento Kings big man in addition to Paul being known for his low blow crotch punches.
The Kings will certainly need to improve moving forward if they’re to form a true rivalry with the Los Angeles Clippers and Chris Paul, but the groundwork has seemingly already been laid.
