Cousins Suspended One Game For Punch Of Beverley & Fined 20K after Ejection

DeMarcus Cousins have been fined $20,000 for verbal abuse of an official and failing to leave the court in a timely manner after his ejection.

Cousins was also suspended one game for punching Patrick Beverley in the game.

Quote:

acramento Kings center DeMarcus Cousins has a bit of a reputation as a volatile personality, and his recent antics in Tuesday's game against the Houston Rockets have cost him a one-game suspension and a $20,000 fine.

Ben Golliver of Sports Illustrated reports on Thursday that the suspension came to Cousins because he threw a punch at Rockets point guard Patrick Beverley in the first quarter.

The punch to Beverley's stomach may have been retaliation for when Cousins injured his ankle and Beverley stood over him in a game between the two teams earlier this season, per The Sacramento Bee's Jason Jones

Premeditated... Should be at least 2 games :cookie:

100% Agree. The guy has so much talent, he just needs the discipline.

In most cases you cannot teach discipline and attitude.

A leopard can't change its spots

Stonezz 02-28-2014 12:18 PM

good thing he isn't a leopard :)

LOG 02-28-2014 12:34 PM

He will always be a nutcase, players like that don't change

Thug 02-28-2014 01:07 PM

Honestly this is a case where his reputation is costing him.

He didnt "punch" beverly.

JoeyJoJo Shabbadu 02-28-2014 01:08 PM

I wouldn't mind him punching him at all if I'm the Kings. But aim for the head.

This kid would average 30ppg on SA.

patrick beverley did not slow down and his over-exposed stomach was approaching demarcus cousins' fist which naturally tightened to prepare for the collision and therefore he is innocent.

If Pop can have the patience for cancerous knucklehead like Stephen Jackson (talking about last year), I guarantee he would have the patience for a guy averaging over 20+ points per game and 10+ rebounds per game in Cousins. Plus, I don't think Cousins would fuck around in Pop's system. He would have all those veterans around him and they would all smarten up Cousins pretty quick.

He didn't. He cut Jackson before the playoffs. :)
