The NBA Players Association is appealing the two-game suspension (without pay) that the League slapped DeMarcus Cousins with, after the Kings big man confronted TV analyst Sean Elliot. From the Sac Bee: “DeMarcus Cousins’ agent said that the Players Association is appealing the two-game suspension the third-year center received for what the league characterized as ‘confronting’ San Antonio Spurs television analyst Sean Elliott in a ‘hostile manner’ following Saturday’s Kings-Spurs game at Sleep Train Arena. According to John Greig, the union is continuing to investigate the matter, but already is convinced the penalty is too severe. Cousins was informed of the two-game penalty and did not play in the Kings-Lakers game Sunday in Staples Center. The immediate goal is to get the suspension lifted prior to [tonight's] home game against the Portland Trail Blazers.”
