DeMarcus Cousins reacts to comments made by James Harden that the Houston Rockets can’t be fixed and that he’s done everything that he can. Cousins says the “disrespect” started before any interview. Boogie adds that he signed in Houston as a free agent to play with John Wall and that everything Harden has done has been unfair to the rest of the team.

The media owes apologies to Dwight & CP3, they made it seem like those guys were the problem

5:24 this guy toxic 😂😂😂
When Boogie comes off as the mature person, you know you have messed up
Can we all just appreciate what a good dude Boogie is? He’s had a tough career, but continues to be someone we should all root for.

Boogie has my respect for this interview.
"The other 14 guys in the locker room have done nothing to him" Facts 💯
Glad Boogie didn't skirt around the issue. Good on him to call James out like he deserved. Can't wait for Boogie to hard foul Harden

James Harden will never be the same as Kobe, Michael or Lebron those people took full responsibility when there team was loosing..not started blaming but putting some extra work...
I hope boogie sticks around long term. The way he has matured in the NBA & the spectrum of the NBA he has lived is impressive. He’s literally been a franchise player, traded, hurt/injured, came back from major injuries, came off the bench, ect ect...

Boogie must've had some therapy, he sounds very therapeutic and genuine. Maturity is fitting him well.
James Harden is a complete joke lol he doesn't play defense.. The only reason he scores so many points, is because he takes tons of shots and gets fouled all the time when he drives.. He might win a championship because of Irving and Durant, but he could never lead a team to a Championship
1:54 “...showing up the way he did” I think he talking about James showing up looking fat af 😂
Jacob Gordon
Jacob Gordon:
This was a good interview for Boogie. Not a Rockets fan but I wish him and them nothing but the best when they aren't playing my team.
When Boogie saying it’s disrespectful, James is trippin
Gotta be the best Boogie Cousins interview I've ever seen, lol. He flat out told you how it is.

I remember when Boogie was "disrespectful" to Isiah Thomas years ago in Sacramento too, saying "the ball is gonna move more." He can dish it but can't take it.
