lol no. He was taken off the plane to PHX because the GM was outta town and wanted to meet to sort things out before handing down a decision. Early reports of a 3 game suspension were totally false.

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.
Again, if missing a game + fine is nothing to you, what would you feel is an appropriate penalty for an altercation with a teammate in the locker room?

I don't have a great answer to your question. I'll get back to you when I do. More games is the only answer I can think of, but I don't know what could fix it. I guess I'd pass something down like a warning of worse penalty. Not against just acting up, but specifically acting up publically. It's a huge concern. Then again, you don't want to chase him away from the franchise I guess. Tough.

Kings better put this kid in check quick or he may end up never getting it. Tons of talent, but one of the worst attitudes I've seen from a rookie in a long time.


And just for the record, the Kings beat the Suns last night without Cousins. And Landry dropped 20/10 in his absence.
