DeMarcus Cousins doesn’t seem to like Draymond Green. Why? Well, it’s quite possible that Cousins feels his own reputation is unfair and that Green would have a similar reputation if his team wasn’t potentially the greatest of all time.
So on Sunday night, Cousins may have felt like he was kicked in the testicles when he watched Green kick Oklahoma City’s Steven Adams in the testicles. While he didn’t come right out and say that, Cousins’ tweet basically conveyed those thoughts.
While those technically aren’t facts, there’s probably a lot of truth to that. It happens in every sport. If you are a very good player on a very bad team, somehow the badness of your team becomes your fault. You are labeled “not a winner” and sometimes even a cancer. Then you go play somewhere else, win and suddenly you are heralded as fiery instead of problematic.
Look at every athlete that’s ever been suspended for cheating, be it drugs or doctoring a baseball or corking a bat or stealing signs. Just about all of them are pariahs. But if you’re Tom Brady and you’ve been either caught cheating or been part of a team that had to pay a fine for cheating, you’re not a cheater; you just want it more than the other guy.
The point here, Boogie, is life is unfair but you should keep tweeting because your tweets allow for openings to point out that the Patriots cheat.
