DeMarcus Cousins’ Emotional Goodbye To The City Of Sacramento
Say what you will about his temper on the court and with the media, just don't call him a bad person because of it. Freshly traded New Orleans Pelican DeMarcus Cousins addressed a party thrown in his honor less than 24 hours after news came down that he would no longer be a Sacramento King. Having spent much of his career denying reports that he wanted to leave, Cousins tenor and thoughtful words made it apparent that he was telling the truth all along -- the man loves the people of Sacramento.
"My love for this city will never change," he said through tears. "Even though I'm gone things will be the same. I'm still gonna be looking out for these kids. Every family in this city matters to me. Every soul in this city matters to me."
Obviously, the love is mutual -- Boogie is the greatest player in Kings history -- which makes it hard not to feel bad for incoming rookie Buddy Hield, who will be into Cousins' role as the team's franchise player (something he's most likely not cut out for). But the NBA isn't always fair. In fact, if this trade tells us anything, it's that the NBA can be perversely unfair and bizarrely illogical at times.
