Things are not going well for the Sacramento Kings right now. The team is currently 1-7 after falling to the San Antonio Spurs on Monday, 106-88.
And with their reported contentious relationship taking a sour turn this past offseason, it wasn’t surprising to learn that there was reportedly a curse-filled blowup in the Kings’ locker room following their thrashing at the hand of the Spurs involving DeMarcus Cousins and George Karl.
The Big Lead broke the story on Wednesday:
After Sacramento was hammered at home by San Antonio Monday night, the Kings’ star, DeMarcus Cousins, stormed into the locker room and cursed out head coach George Karl with a torrent of obscenities, a person close to the situation told The Big Lead.
After Cousins unleashed the F-bombs on Karl, all the head coach – who publicly feuded with the Kings best player last summer – could do was walk away, a source tells The Big Lead.
In the midst of that story and reports that Karl could be fired as early as this week, DeMarcus issued a statement on what transpired in the Kings locker room on Monday. While he acknowledged that he did vent his frustrations after the loss, Cousins was adamant that he did not single out Karl.

Whatever happened behind closed doors, it’s pretty clear that the Kings are an absolute mess.
