NBA Denies DeMarcus Cousins’ Suspension Appeal

No surprise here, as the Players Association’s attempt to appeal DeMarcus Cousins‘ two-game suspension was turned down by the League. Per the Sac Bee: “DeMarcus Cousins’ appeal to reduce his two-game suspension to one was denied Tuesday, and he missed his second game when the Kings lost to the Portland Trail Blazers Tuesday night at Sleep Train Arena. Cousins was suspended Sunday for two games for confronting San Antonio Spurs broadcaster and former NBA player Sean Elliott after last Friday’s game in what the NBA deemed a ‘hostile’ manner. Cousins left the locker room to confront Elliott about comments he’d been told Elliott made about him during the television broadcast. The appeal through the National Basketball Players Association was an attempt to get the penalty reduced on the basis the punishment was too harsh.”

    “Crazier than MWP” is exactly what the Kings need. They’ve had a bunch of guys who don’t stand up for themselves and “always play nice with the other kids” and where has it gotten them? It’s led to losing and coaches getting fired.

    Picking fights with Sean Elliot the broadcaster vs picking fights with Ben Wallace and an entire section of Pistons faithful is not exactly the same. Let’s just say Cuz is a little off!

    Guy has been tagged as a problem. He will get harsher punishments than other players for this kind of thing from here on out. Just the way it is.
