In terms of organizational fortitude, the Sacramento Kings are well – nothing short of embarrassing. From the ownership to the front office, a horror story has unfolded for the purple and black loyalists and it’s not just the fans feeling the brunt of the failures.
Speaking with Slam Magazine recently, DeMarcus Cousins delved into a handful of different and unique topics – one of which was the lack of veteran presence on the Kings’ roster:
Slam Magazine: Do you feel like you’ve ever had a veteran that you could ever go to, to show you the ropes?
DeMarcus Cousins: Nah, I really haven’t – but um, I don’t really like to use that as an excuse because at some points, I didn’t always have that, but I definitely think a veteran guy would help the situation.
In fairness to the Kings, they did bring in Chuck Hayes who many respect as a veteran leader – but apparently – that’s not doing it for Cousins.
DeMarcus also talks to Slam’s Tracy Weissenberg about the Kings’ potential relocation, his future in the league, how he feels he’s misunderstood and how he struggles to find anybody in his corner.
Cousins apparently didn’t eat his happy Wheaties that morning because the Kings’ big man didn’t appear too thrilled with the interview, but his answers were most definitely candid.
