Charles Barkley is never afraid to speak his mind and especially so when it comes to Sacramento Kings big man DeMarcus Cousins. Cousins has been ejected and has received technical fouls more than anyone else in the league since the 2010-11 season. He’s never described as a top player because of his attitude problems and Chuck wonders what might have happened if Cousins hadn’t gone to a “Mickey Mouse” ball club.
Barkley believes that if someone like Pat Riley or Gregg Popovich had been able to coach Cousins, Cousins wouldn’t be such a big problem and coach killer. He clearly needs more structure in his life and the Kings keep enabling him by not suspending him when a coach wants to suspend him and give him way too long a leash.
Here’s his interview with SiriusXM NBA Radio and he is clearly livid on the subject.
