If there is one thing we know about DeMarcus Cousins is that he got issues. He got fined by the team for arguing with the staff, getting tossed out of practice by Paul Westphal, and now Sam Amick of AOL Fanhouse has reported that DeMarcus Cousins is suspended 1 game and possibly their whole 3 game road trip.
Report says that DeMarcus Cousins and Donte Greene got into an argument in the locker room and had to be pulled away from each other. Apparently Donte Greene and DeMarcus Cousins were arguing about Tyreke Evans late game decision that could of won the game for the Kings.
Source also say that DeMarcus Cousins was yelling at Tyreke Evans from the tunnel all the way to the locker room.
Okay, we all knew this was going to happen. From the day the Kings drafted DeMarcus Cousins, they knew what they were getting into. My question is, how can you control such a person? If anything, this is the coach’s problem to control Cousins’ temper. Yes given that he is only 19, that is more of a reason to guide the young fella to maturity. And to be honest, I don’t think a suspension is necessary. If anything, it will probably make Cousins act more rebellious than he already is.
