Apparently, 'Kirk' Cousins left New Orleans a little bit later than the rest of the team.
On top of that, he managed to quickly get the starting job for New Orleans' NBA franchise and then got ejected in his first career start.
At least that is how one newspaper reported the Pelicans vs. Thunder match-up on Monday evening.
Kirk Cousins was ejected for raising his elbows near Russell Westbrook's face - resulting in a flagrant foul that knocked Westbrook to the floor holding his head - in the Pelicans' 114-107 win over the visiting Thunder.
No, the real Kirk Cousins, who is quarterback for the Washington Redskins, is not still in New Orleans. No, Cousins did not make an NBA team, nor did he get into an altercation with Russell Westbrook. He is back home preparing for the Thanksgiving night match-up against the New York Giants.
If you haven't gotten it by now, it was meant to be DeMarcus Cousins.
Quite simply, whoever created this blurb may have assisted in some way with coverage of the Washington vs. New Orleans game this past Sunday.
Normally, this mistake largely goes unnoticed and there may or may not be an editor's note in the next day's edition. The real Kirk Cousins, though, got a copy of it and had some fun.

No harm, no foul, although DeMarcus Cousins would probably appreciate one less ejection going on his record.
