http://grantland.com/features/the-ballad-of-boogie/ I wonder if any have read this. 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." In November, he memorablyyankedIsaiah Thomas away as he attempted to shake Paul's hand after a close loss. "It was [him being competitive]," Thomas said. "At the same time, I told him, 'Everyone looks at everything that you do. So they may take it....

We're the cheaters? Cousins is the one who purposely pushed JJ Redick while he was in the air, which caused him to break his hand. Not to mention Cousins outweighs Redick by 80 pounds. Yeah.... that's not cheap at all.

Beat me to it. We lost what, 20 games? ...from one of our most efficient players because Boogie is a bully. If that's "fair play" then Chris Paul should be allowed to kick Cousins in the nuts every time he puts up a layup.

If it weren't for basketball he'd undoubtedly be in jail, but he's making 8 figures and he still finds things to b!tch about. Punk.

Cousins is just a nut case with a bad temper.

Is it me, or does Cousins always seem to have our Clippers on his mind? Professional jealousy perhaps? He wishes he was wearing red and white?

Undoubtedly be in jail? Oh please, not every NBA player is a thug. Boogie seems like a douche, but from what I can tell, he's not a terribly bad person.

Did I say every NBA player is a thug?

Not at all... I implied that Cousins is a thug.

Even in this article (which is basically half love-letter, half excuse for his past behavior), the author concedes that he is "petulant" and "a tyrant". Combine those traits with his intimidating physique, his limited intellectual capacity and the fact that young black men are incarcerated at a disproportionately higher rate than any other segment of the population, and I don't think my assertion is unrealistic in the least.

There is a damn good reason he slipped in the draft. People didn't want to deal with his attitude...

"When DeMarcus Cousins entered the league, he demeaned coaches, fought with teammates, and argued with referees."

"The school suspended Cousins for the second half of his sophomore season following a physical altercation with a bus driver."

If you took away his basketball skills, that type of demeanor would be much more of a hindrance in real life than the "attribute" that some may perceive it to be in a competitive sporting arena. As unjust as it may be, statistics clearly indicate that angry young black men who don't possess a skill that society values... get locked up.

I stand by my statement.
