I love how DeMarcus Cousins always wears his emotions on his sleeve.

It doesn’t always serve him well. But as an outside observer, it’s fun to watch someone so openly express his feelings.

And Cousins has made no secret of how he feels about the Kings, who traded him after saying they wouldn’t then acted sanctimonious about it.

That’s why he’s looking forward to the Pelicans’ first game in Sacramento.

Cousins, via Marc J. Spears of The Undefeated:

“I can’t wait. Oh, my God. I can’t wait. I’m praying it’s the first game. I just got a lot to get off my chest. I can’t wait,” Cousins said at the NBA’s Basketball Without Borders Africa camp on Wednesday.

“I miss the community. I miss the people. I miss the fans. That’s it,” Cousins said.

That’s an obvious omission of owner Vivek Ranadive and general manager Vlade Divac.

But I’m sure Cousins misses the people of Sacramento. I know because he was so outwardly emotional about leaving them when traded to New Orleans.
