DeMarcus Cousins keeps his teammates from shaking the LA Clippers hands

After Saturday nights lost to the LA Clippers center DeMarcus Cousins refused to shake hands and angrily pulled his teammate Isaiah Thomas away from Chris Paul.
Sorry folks, but if this is the face of the Sacramento Kings we can safely say they will have a trouble future. This one ranks as a top ten most childish stunts ever pulled in sports.
Sacramento's new owner can't like this unsportsmanlike conduct, I assume this behavior will become part of the -changing the culture of this team- I would also assume acting like a thug is part of that plan.
Just guessing.
The young man doesn't seamed to understand that these are professional man doing a job that pays them millions. The games are always heated and competitive but when is over you move on.
If Mr. Cousins didn't want to talk to anybody all he had to do is walk straight to the locker room, like many of them do, but no matter how bad you think you are, no one has the right to stop a teammate from talking to another player.
Period. That requires no discussion.
It is unfortunate that after such a great effort by the Kings Mr, Cousins decided to act like a child rather than a professional basketball player.
This could be a great teaching moment by this coach or the owner. A benching would help this mans career.
