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

Via Real GM


Quote:
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.
Via Bleacher Report:

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

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

In most cases you cannot teach discipline and attitude.

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

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.
