Default Kings fine DeMarcus Cousins for incident with teammate, won't suspend him

aside from the one game he missed which was not technically a suspension.

The Sacramento Kings today fined rookie forward/center DeMarcus Cousins for his involvement in a post-game incident with Donté Greene following Saturday’s (2/12/11) contest versus the Oklahoma City Thunder. Cousins will rejoin the team and be available for Tuesday’s rematch against the Thunder in Oklahoma City.

He obviously hasn't been punished enough. If he gets away with something so disrespectful to his team and doesn't get away with so many other things. What kind of message does it send? Is it okay? NO.

If nothing happened to Green, then Cousins had to have instigated whatever confrontation occurred. Also remember this is a team punishment, not a league one.

How does he get away with it by missing a game + fine? I don't get what you are basing this on. This was two teammates fighting in the locker room. Most times, that's not even punished. What would be appropriate punishment according to you if this is nothing?

again,he missed a game and will be fined for it. While it is clearly not acceptable behavior (no matter how valid his point may have been), its not nearly the big deal that it was made out to be.


KG suckerpunched rik rickert and broke his face during a team practice cause he was getting embarrassed by him according to eye witness accounts. How is cousins upset over a botched/bad last possession worse than something like that. If you expect these dudes to play with passion, it is bound to overflow occasionally.

BTW, punches didn't even land. It was a *****-swing fight.

I thought it was Cousin's decision to miss a game. The fine is a slap on the wrist. There's been so much trouble with this guy, I expected there to be severe punishment. It seems like it never stops. It's only his rookie year and there's been multiple problems and we're not even done yet.
