re: Anyone else tired of DC's act?
We literally ALL knew that's what we were getting.

If you had to grade Cousins' behavior as a Pelican thus far you'd honestly have to give him an A-.

He's been about as perfect as we could hope for given the shite circumstances.

At least he's on the court unlike #23 Glassman Vajayjay

agree to a point. I want to see more action by our coach in working the refs. Cousins has definitely backed down some. Thibodeau was a good example the other night of really working the refs and advocating for better officiating.
He has to an extent. But bitching at the ref and just shrugging and walking back on defense has the same effect on the TEAM. I just want our team to play transition defense and defense in general. And he gives up so many points a game by how he reacts on offense and not getting back.

But I agree with you about the coach, it needs to be Gentry doing more of the work on the officials and NOT cousins. We can win a game without Gentry, not without our better players.

He has soured AD on the referees. Its bad for your team. They will all quit and argue a call. Management Knew they had the wrong Coach for a team with cousins. But there stuck with gentry till this plays out.

What small market team had more physically gifted athletes that don't get calls like they should?

The complaining does need to stop, but the coach needs to reign in his team and work the refs like thibs

Was Green not spending his whole game with the focus on agitating and mainly agitating Cousins?
i see your point about Green but look at the Talent that he is surrounded with. The Pels don't have that luxury. When Davis is out ,Cousins is supposed to be our best player( our superstar) Green is a fourth option for GS . What do I expect out of a superstar with his talent... grow up and lead your team not frown/ cry when things aren't going your teams way

Literally watched it 5 rows up from where it occurred. Cousins didn't do shite and they still tossed him. Thats shitty reffing and golden state always stirring shite. Especially Draymond.
I agree that the ejection was bull shite. Not disagreeing there. The refs just had it with both of them leading up to it.

On a side note, I watched it on TV where they showed multiple replays btw, I don't see why being there changes what I saw compared to you.

Well I have argued that he wouldn’t be treated like that in a bigger market or on a more respected franchise.

You also have to have to acknowledge he is the best big center in the league and doesn’t get equal treatment. So yes he is in a small market, but he is an All-NBA guy.

Gentry in his press conference even admitted he is getting fricked on fouls. Refs take away our advantage by giving guys like Curry and Harden touch fouls, but letting Cousins and Davis get hacked.

This guy gets it. It's called being an adult. Kids whine and cry. Cousins is as stubborn as they get.


Edit: Green, Durant, and Steph also whine and cry too. But then you look at Thompson and say, wow he must put them to bed at night. All kidding aside, reffing a game with the warriors vs Pels (or any team Cousins is on) must be hell.

I expect the refs to contain and end that shite. Especially on the Pels own floor.

He's physically gifted sure but his play style is reckless and out of control so I honestly don't blame refs most of the time for not giving him the benefit of the doubt.

And yeah sometimes he gets screwed but his pissy attitude just makes refs want to double down and again it's hard to blame them.

I agree that Gentry needs to nut up and start sticking up for his players though.

Maybe if he wasn’t always on a losing and poorly coached team he’d be less frustrated


Or maybe he has a lot to do with playing losing basketball and developing a losing culture. A player who his fan boys dub “a top 10 player” and he can’t even lead his team to 30 wins much less a playoff spot. There is no such thing as a top 10 player that plays losing basketball

re: Anyone else tired of DC's act?
Look I used to get pissed how Eric Gordon never got calls in NOLA. He got super frustrated by it and it was obvious. Wesley made comments about it constantly.

Cousins is way way better than Gordon.

7 technicals in 24 games. He’ll get to 16 easily

The two technicals he got tonight were extremely weak.

Mentioned that purely because people hate and defend the tech saying cousins cursed out the refs without any of it being true. Then people run with it and say cousins is a profanity loudmouth.

Sometimes the replays dont show what's "said", but not a single profanity from cousins, but I could hear green scream profanities all game after a gs foul.

The terrible thing is at least half of those Technicals have come at the end of games and were not heat of the moment things but the inability to shut your damn mouth and play ball.

That’s the fourth time this season Cousins has picked up a technical foul in the final two minutes of a game.


Lol

So ridiculous

Boogie is now on pace for 24 technical fouls this season. Suspension for every other one at 16 and beyond.

I guess AD is just as pathetic. No big man in this era can carry dleague scrubs, sorry.
