Demarcus Cousin and Julius Randle are two of the best products to come out of the Kentucky basketball factory in recent years.
And despite both playing coach John Calipari the two do not like each other. The two have had past altercations when the Kings and Lakers have played, and the two got into again when they met on Monday night.
Cousins grabs Randle from behind and tosses the Laker to the ground after the grapple for a few seconds. The event occurred in the first quarter of the game.

After the incident, Lakers head coach Luke Walton was ejected for arguing about the call. Walton got very heated while defending Randle, and used NSFW language in doing so.

Cousins played for Calipari in his first season in 2009-10, while Randle also stayed for just one season, 2012-13. Cousins team lost in the Elite Eight, while Randle’s team advanced to the championship game before losing to Connecticut.
Both players were taken in the top 10 of their respective NBA Drafts. Maybe coach Calipari can broker a peace treaty between the two former Kentucky stars.
