Sunday wasn’t the first time Michael Malone ripped the Sacramento Kings this season, though, it may have stung the worst.
After a beat down courtesy of the Brooklyn Nets, the Kings head coach ripped into his team, suggesting they were playing selfish basketball.
“Right now, what I see on both ends of the floor is the disease of ‘me,’ ” Malone said. “I think we’re becoming a selfish basketball team on both ends.”
Sacramento finished their loss to the Nets with just 11 assists – which somehow almost seemed uglier than the 24 turnovers.
Malone wasn’t alone in his sentiment as big man DeMarcus Cousins backed his coach, suggesting that Malone’s point was valid and hinted that players on the roster aren’t taking accountability for their actions (ironic as that sounds).
Everybody seems to be saying the correct thing in regards to the poor play, but so far the results speak for themselves.
The Kings will attempt to get things fixed back up on Tuesday evening when they take on the Detroit Pistons in Motown.
