Cousins’ subtle shot is understandable considering he’s a superior player to Thompson in every way but Thompson will be making almost as much money as him now on a title contender. On the other hand, the market has changed and Thompson received what his value dictates.
After getting replies to his original tweet, Cousins also replied to this fan’s criticism of him.
