It’s not often that DeMarcus Cousins hands out compliments, but the Sacramento Kings big man had nothing but great things to say about Philadelphia 76ers center Joel Embiid in his postgame interview following Monday night’s duel between the two.

That’s some pretty high praise, despite the sarcastic pause at the end before the “after I retire” line.
Cousins had 30 points and seven rebounds in the Kings’ 102-100 win. Embiid, meanwhile, posted 25 points and eight boards.
