DeMarcus Cousins got very emotional last night after finding out that he’d been traded to the New Orleans Pelicans. Cousins played for the Sacramento Kings for 7 seasons.

In his goodbye speech to the people of Sacramento, he expressed his love for the city and his commitment to the kids and families in it.

“My love for this city will never change. Even though I’m gone it’ll still be the same. I’m still looking out for these kids. Every family in this city matters to me.”

“Every soul in this city matters to me. Everything’s the same. I’m just not in a Kings uniform anymore, which is OK because the love is still here.”
