At least according to the Sacramento King’s All Star Center, DeMarcus Cousins.
Deadspin reports that Cousins had a heated exchange with Kings management. When it was over, Kings personnel began removing Chinese New Year t-shirts that were waiting for fans at their seats.
Cousins thought such a celebration was insensitive on the first night of Black History Month.
No one is denying the significance of Black history Month, but that doesn’t mean you can’t celebrate Chinese New Year.
No word on whether the t-shirts will be given away on a later date.
Cousins has a reputation around the league of being immature and for his temper.
It’s unfortunate given his huge God-given talent.
Good move Kings. Year of Monkey Tees on 1 st day of Black History Month not a good look. Thanks DeMarcus… pic.twitter.com/wvqkdgdr7r
