DeMarcus Cousins Ejected After Telling Ref Not to Act Like a Female

After hearing some colorful language from Sacramento Kings center DeMarcus Cousins, referee Scott Foster tossed him out of last night’s game in Utah at halftime. Not too surprisingly, the Jazz walked away with a 98-91 victory. Per the Sac Bee: “Kings coach Keith Smart and guard Isaiah Thomas saw the potential for something bad as Cousins approached referees Scott Foster, Matt Boland and Tre Maddox at halfcourt. But Cousins said enough before they arrived. ‘He was all right until whatever he said,’ Thomas said. ‘He’s got to be smarter because he’s not just hurting himself, he’s hurting his team when he does things like that.’ Cousins was put off by the fact that Maddox didn’t explain the first technical against him with 2:23 left in the second quarter. ‘He was saying, ‘Don’t talk to me,’ Cousins said. ‘So my response was, ‘You don’t have to act like an effing female.’ I shouldn’t have said that. That’s about it.’ With that, Foster tossed Cousins. Cousins has been ejected twice against the Jazz this season. He was thrown out from a Nov. 24 win over visiting Utah after being called for two technical fouls. Cousins has an NBA-high 12 technical fouls and is four from an automatic one-game suspension. The center has been ejected three times this season.”

    This guy is never going to live up to his potential, much like Sheed.

    I don’t even think the mighty Sheed would have said something that stupid.

    I’m gonna play Devil’s Advocate here because some of these refs do act high and mighty. He was asking what did he do to deserve that first tech, that could have easily been told and should have been told to him. That’s the whole reason for the technical foul in the first place. I know DC acts like a fool most times but the ref was acting like a b*tch in this one.

    Lol, “don’t act like a f**king female!”

  • Yknot

    They’ll stop acting like effing females when you stop acting like an effing child.
