It's been a rough few days for the Sacramento Kings. On the night of the NBA All Star Game, the team's best player, DeMarcus Cousins was traded to New Orleans and found out about the trade in the post-game media scrum. You can see his instant reaction when told in the video below.
Then Kings General Manager Vlade Divac actually said the deal he made with the Pelicans was not the best deal he was offered for Cousins that week!
Yep, Vlade actually said this. pic.twitter.com/CEW7aynAZ2— Dieter Kurtenbach (@dkurtenbach) February 20, 2017
Finally, in his goodbye to the loving fans in Sacramento, Cousins breaks down talking about how much he loves the people and the city.
As a Seattle SuperSonics fan who nearly saw the Kings come to Seattle a few years ago, you have to wonder if the team would have been this much of a mess had they moved to the Emerald City.
