When DeMarcus Cousins becomes a very good NBA player, some people are going to have to apologize for writing him off prematurely as a hot-headed malcontent incapable of behaving like an adult within a team context. But for now, Cousins is just making it too easy.
While we were all barbecuing and playing beach volleyball and otherwise celebrating America’s independence, Cousins was busy earning a technical foul during a streetball game in Washington, D.C.’s legendary Goodman league, according to the Afro. Again: He earned a technical during a streetball game in a league that, according to every description I’ve read this morning, is part serious (there is lots of talent every summer) and informal, with some running trash-talk play-by-play from the commissioner and lots of the highlight showboating you normally see in streetball action.
Cousins got called for traveling and threw the ball out of the gym. In a streetball game.SI STORY:http://nba-point-forward.si.com/2011/07/05/cousins-gets-td-up-in-a-streetball-game/ORIGINAL REPORT:http://afro.com/sections/sports/story.htm?storyid=71744
