NEW ORLEANS — DeMarcus Cousins was set to answer questions after the All-Star game, when a Kings public-relations official said, “All-Star questions first, please. All-Star-game questions.”
“What other questions we got?” Cousins asked, seemingly unaware of his trade to the Pelicans.
The PR person whispered in Cousins’ ear.
“Oh, really?” Cousins asked.
“It’s whatever,” Cousins said.
Then, asked about his All-Star experience, Cousins smiled big and said, “It was amazing, man. I enjoyed the city of New Orleans. I love it here in New Orleans.”
