DeMarcus Cousins is the latest NBA player to speak up about the place of confederate statues in public spaces, as captured on video by TMZ.
Cousins was caught in passing at an airport but offered some offhand commentary when asked, with one chief message: “Take all them motherf-----s down.”
The Pelicans center played at Kentucky and grew up in Alabama, and joined the likes of LeBron James and Kevin Durant in noting that he “doesn’t really respect” President Donald Trump.
