DeMarcus Cousins is still searching for his first playoff trip, but it appears the Sacramento Kings will miss it for the sixth straight year of his tenure. An injury ruling out Rudy Gay for the remainder of the season makes it unlikely the Kings can sneak into a late spot.
NBC Sports reports Cousins discussed the pressure and struggle of trying to finally make the playoffs.
“It’s eating me alive. Every loss or every time another team wins in battling for the eighth spot, it’s eating me alive. Our only goal is to be in the playoffs this season.”
Cousins entering free agency this summer will be interesting if he decides to leave Sacramento for a contender.
