Sacramento Kings center DeMarcus Cousins abhors the Los Angeles Clippers and their tendency to flop, and after a 104-111 loss to the Clippers in the Kings’ season-opener on Wednesday night, Cousins was very vocal about his dislike for ‘Lob City.’

During an appearance on Grantland in the summer of 2014, Cousins admitted to Bill Simmons that he loathed starting point guard Chris Paul, saying: “I dislike CP a lot.” 

Surprisingly, the Clippers have become one of the most detested teams in the league, with many growing weary of their whining and flopping ways. In the past, you couldn’t turn on a Clippers game without seeing Blake Griffin, DeAndre Jordan, Paul and even head coach Doc Rivers pouting and bellyaching for a whistle to be blown. It was as if they believed they had a sense of entitlement despite accomplishing zilch in the postseason. 

Couple this with their flopping theatrics, and you have a team that’s easy to hate. But in Boogie’s case, I think his dislike for the Clippers stems more from the fact that he’s only 3-15 against them in their career. When you constantly lose to the same team, they become an irritant. The Clippers have clearly done a good job of getting under Cousins’ skin thus far in his career.
