Now that the Maloofs no longer own the Kings, DeMarcus Cousins thinks the team can head in the right direction. He didn’t really pull any punches when describing what things were like under the old ownership:
“It felt like an AAU team. Everything [critics] were saying before, I believe it’s true. We were the worst. We weren’t building for the future, we were just living in the moment. That’s why we were that bad. … Honestly, I feel like I wasted time. I hate the fact that it took everything we went through to get to this. I guess you could say it makes that much better.”
Funny, he didn’t mention that when they were still signing the checks but I can let him slide on that. It seems like everyone is happy so far with the new ownership group. The Kings even beat the Nuggets and Cousins dropped 30.
