DeMarcus Cousins Does Not Like Chris Paul

Perhaps one of the oddest feuds in the NBA is the ongoing battle between Sacramento Kings big man DeMarcus Cousins and Los Angeles Clippers point guard Chris Paul. Maybe Cliff Paul didn't send Cousins a Christmas card, maybe there's been some disrespect towards each other's diets, or maybe CP3 just plays in a way that's kind of irritating to people, especially big men.

Take the above video, for instance. After a botched alley-oop, Cousins corralled the loose ball. Paul went for the steal and kind of got his arm hooked around Cousins' arm. The latter didn't like that, and as he started falling out of bounds, he whipped the ball off of Paul's back. 

I understand both sides–Paul's playing hard, Cousins is upset that said hard playing is coming with the offender's team up by 18 with under three minutes to go in the game.

Either way, there's bad blood here. Now we just need T-Swift to write a song about the pair.
