DeMarcus Cousins Apologized to Sean Elliott for 2012 Confrontation

by March 24, 2014

Better late than never, we suppose. DeMarcus Cousins got in trouble a couple of years ago for confronting Spurs TV analyst Sean Elliott after he made critical remarks on the air; Boogie Cousins apologized to Elliott on Friday for losing his cool. Per the Sac Bee:

The NBA deemed that confrontation threatening and hostile and suspended Cousins for two games.

When the Spurs were in Sacramento this past Friday, Cousins approached Elliott before the game and apologized.

“What happened between me and Sean the other day was just me being man enough to admit that I was wrong,” Cousins said. “I wasn’t expecting it to get out. I was hoping it was going to be something between me and him.”

Cousins had maintained for more than a year that he didn’t do anything worthy of a suspension. But Elliott said the apology seemed sincere. Word spread of the apology because it happened before the game where team officials and media could see it courtside.
