DeMarcus Cousins Unhappy With Summertime Refs


DeMarcus Cousins didn’t just have beef with Kings teammate Francisco Garcia in the friendly game between NBA vets from the University of Kentucky and the Dominican Republic National team; he was also less than thrilled with the officiating. The Herald-Leader reports: “The Cat-mosphere hung thick in the air in Rupp Arena on Monday night as the John Calipari-coached Dominican Republic National Team beat a group of University of Kentucky NBA veterans 106-88. For the Dominicans, it was a tuneup for an Olympic qualifying tournament later in the summer. For the mostly blue-clad UK fans in attendance, it was important enough to lustily boo former villains playing for the Dominicans and scream objections to more than a few officiating decisions … Several of the former UK players endorsed the idea of repeating the experience annually in an alumni game. Wall, a native of Raleigh, N.C., noted that North Carolina plays such a game each off-season. DeMarcus Cousins, who continued his Rupp Arena habit of feeling persecuted by non-calls, said he’d like to participate in future games. ‘I’m down with it,’ he said before adding, ‘as long as we don’t have the same refs.’”

    What is wrong with you people? Watch the video, it was a joke. Crazy how the media can take one comment and write a whole new story and put such a negative spin on an amazing event. The 23,000+ in attendance and players were there to have fun for a good cause, hopefully helping the Dominican Republic National team reach its Olympic dream. That is the real story. Not this garbage.
