DeMarcus Cousins: Chris Paul is 'a cheater'

Kelley L. Cox, USA TODAY Sports

DeMarcus Cousins is not fond of the physical style of play Chris Paul employs.

In a recent interview with Grantland, the Sacramento Kings big man criticized the Los Angeles Clippers' knack for rough play, saying he doesn't respect it, and even going as far as calling Paul a cheater.

“It’s just, some players I don’t respect,” Cousins told Grantland. “Just their playing style of basketball. I don’t respect it. I feel like it’s basically cheating and I don’t respect a cheater. If that’s your tactic to winning, I don’t respect you.”

Harsh words, indeed, from the controversial and boisterous Cousins.

To be fair, Cousins' reputation for being one of the most imposing big men in the game often works against him. He doesn't draw the kind of fouls that other players do and frustration has clearly set in.
