DeMarcus Cousins on Clippers: ‘I hate ‘em’

DeMarcus Cousins is most vocal about about his dislike of Chris Paul, but really, it’s all the Clippers.

The Kings center addressed the Clippers after Sacramento’s 111-104 loss to Los Angeles last night.

Cousins on the Clippers, via CSN California:

I hate ‘em. Honestly, I do. I hate ‘em.

Cousins has essentially said he loathes the Clippers because of their flopping, and that’s fair. I dislike their flopping, too.

But I suspect another factor contributes: Cousins is 3-15 against the Clippers – his most losses to any team. Nobody likes the team that keeps beating you, and Clippers play excellent villains.

Cousins did all he could to beat the Clippers last night. Until he gets over the hump more consistently against them – even if they stop flopping – I think his hate will remain.
