Northern California is supposedly one of the most laid-back parts of the United States. Don't tell that to DeMarcus Cousins and George Karl, who continue their war in Sacramento.
For reference, last summer, rumors swirled that Karl, the Kings' coach, wanted the team to trade Cousins. Cousins went to Twitter with this "snake in the grass" post:

Somehow, Cousins and Karl have co-existed for almost a full season since then, and the Kings have only a slim shot at making the postseason.
As those playoff hopes slip, stress is rising in Sac-Town. On Wednesday, Cousins went off on Karl during a timeout, as shown in this video:

On Thursday, Kings vice president of basketball operations and general manager Vlade Divac announced Cousins will be suspended for one game for "conduct detrimental to the team." That means Cousins will miss Friday night's home bout with the Magic.
Boogie took to Instagram to express his feelings on Karl and the Kings (the posts have been deleted, but here are screenshots via Total Pro Sports):
Some call Cousins a baby, others call him a master of public relations. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion.
