With the signing of DeMarcus Cousins, the Lakers were hoping they would get that much closer to sealing an NBA Championship. Instead, not only is he out for the season, but he is getting in some trouble off the court as well.
After being allegedly caught on camera threatening to “put a bullet” in the head of his baby mama Christy West, an official investigation has been launched by the Lakers organization.
Lakers’ statement on the @TMZ_Sports report on DeMarcus Cousins: “We are aware of the allegation involving DeMarcus Cousins and, of course, take this claim seriously. We are in the process of gathering information and will reserve further comment at this time.”

The audio from the video presented by West is not confirmed to be Cousins, nor has Cousins come out and said anything in response to the claim. Still, it’s a bad look for him — especially when he was already on a thing thread, to begin with.
As he recovers from an Achilles tear and an already damaged reputation, this latest scandal is the last thing he needs right now. No doubt, the future has never been so doubtful for the 4x All-Star.
