DeMarcus Cousins and Rajon Rondo were meant to be teammates 😂https://t.co/XsmmmU53cQ

Rajon Rondo and DeMarcus Cousins are miserable and spreading the clap.
On Wednesday night, with the Kings up 120-106 and only a little more than six seconds left, referee Marc Davis called Rondo for an inbound violation.
No big deal, right? The Kings were up a solid 14 points. The game was going to be over in such a short amount of time — 6.7 seconds — that a Vine could’ve told the whole story of its remainder. And now, we have that Vine, that beautiful Vine.
Cousins and Rondo immediately started clapping at Davis, about as sarcastically as one can be while slapping hand to palm. Both were T’d up. Rondo got ejected. Cousins, meanwhile, received his league-leading 16th technical foul of the season, which means he will be suspended for the Kings’ next game, which will come Friday at home against the Heat.
In the end, it’s not like this matters all that much. Sacramento is a forgettable 30-45, and though the team hasn’t yet been mathematically eliminated from the postseason, all logic says its season is done. That seems to be how you end up with claps like this.
