Dennis Schroder Suspended for Hitting DeMarcus Cousins Below the Belt (VIDEO)

Atlanta Hawks rookie guard Dennis Schroder has been hit with a one-game suspension, after grabbing DeMarcus Cousins’ junk in the fourth quarter of a game on Tuesday night. Per the AJC: “Schroder will serve the suspension tonight when the Hawks play at the Nuggets. The incident occurred with 9:54 remaining in the fourth quarter of the Hawks’ 105-100 win as Schroder fought through a screen while guarding Isaiah Thomas. Schroder claimed he was just trying to get around the screen. ‘I was guarding Isaiah Thomas, and we got tangled up as I was trying to get around the screen,’ Schroder said Wednesday. ‘I was just focused on getting back into position and in front of my guy.’ The incident drew attention following Cousins’ postgame remarks and when Kings minority owner Shaquille O’Neal took to social media. O’Neal tweeted video of the incident. [...] ‘I took a cheap shot to my lower area,’ Cousins told reporters after the game. ‘(The referees) just blew it off. I guess because it was me.’”

    I will never understand why a man would punch or grab another mans nuts unless you’re fighting for your life. It’s such a b1tch move.

  • ATL dynamite

  • Allan

    He grabbed the wrong ball(s)

  • LakeShow

    And even if I was fighting for my life I wouldn’t do that. That just means it’s my time to go.

  • Max

    Lol it makes it look REALLY weird.

  • VictorDeLaWood

    So you’d rather die than punch the guy trying to end you in the balls?

  • ATL dynamite

    Yeah how does one fight off screens with his arms and fist all the way out like this lol
    Still gotta root for my team tho

  • http://soundcloud.com/tray-8 T-Ray

    Yep. Judge me.

  • petada

    what irks me is that it seems as though the block call was like a response to demarcus looking at the ref

  • bike

    A new disturbing trend will emerge this season where players fake getting their nuts grabbed. It will be termed ‘bawling’.

  • spit hot fiyah

    agreed, shout out to batum and navarro.

    check out the replay though, why is cousins holding on to schroeder’s hand and not let it go after the “nut contact”

  • Dfrance

    Yeah I don’t know what to make of it. Cousins didn’t really react like a dude that had his balls grabbed, but Schroder didn’t really try hard to get his hand out of there either.

    Maybe he got the twig and not the berries?

  • Dfrance

    Lmao! I’m judging you tho…

    Lol I’m only joking man I would Ken from Street Fighter some dudes nuts if I was fighting for my life.

  • robb

    WTF leave that to soccer players

  • Dfrance

    Figured as much but that made me laugh.

  • speedy

    Dennis channeled his inner nutcracker the wrong way.

    What’s really disturbing is that he held his hand there for a bit. I’m all for Cousins controlling his temper and being careful, but Schroder is lucky that dude didn’t go after him. He deserved to get knocked out. Don’t care where you’re from, dudes know that’s not cool. Even if it’s after the game. Go to the visitor’s locker room and see if dude has a problem. That’s not something you can just let go.

  • fruizm

    He didnt even punch or tap…he grabbed hahaha!

  • house

    Dennis “Shrotum” Schroder!

  • Demar DeBROzan

    Has to be incredibly encouraging for Kings fans to see Demarcus keep his composure in a situation like this; a year ago he would have completely spazzed and gotten himself ejected.

  • C.M.G

    come out the closet dennis LOL…Jason did it

  • guest

    say it to his face

  • danpowers

    just to inform you americans: that was the traditional german rabbit-catch-grasp, might be confusing as it is properly performed approaching from behind. schröder is young tho, im confident he will get it going later on

  • danpowers

    then pray that you’ll never have to fight for your life lol
