The Sacramento Kings are pulling out all the stops to get their man DeMarcus Cousins voted into the All-Star game as a starter. It’s a tough task considering he is competing with guys like Kevin Durant, Kawhi Leonard, Anthony Davis and Draymond Green for the three starting frontcourt positions and Durant is already a lock for one of them. Also making it difficult is the fact that after the first round of voting, Warriors center, Zaza Pachulia is actually second in the conference in voting for frontcourt players, right behind Durant. That in itself is just terrible and will hopefully work itself out but in the meantime, the Kings are doing everything they can to get Cousins there, even taking jabs at Chris Paul.


In case you don’t know, Cousins and Paul don’t have the greatest of relationships. They are far from enemies but Cousins has called Paul out more than once for his flopping. It was something the team was sure to make light of as they tried to get votes for Cousins.

They weren’t done there. A few hours later they posted a much better gif, again taking a shot at Paul.

All in all it was just good humor but Cousins really does deserve to start. If it was up to me it would be Durant, Leonard and Cousins as the starters with Anthony Davis, Draymond Green and Karl-Anthony Towns coming off the bench.

Let’s all just hope that those useless votes going to Pachulia don’t make a mess of it all.
