DeMarcus Cousins has been suspended by the Kings and is not making the trip to Phoenix, according to a source close to the team


Cousins had confrontation with D. Greene regarding the decision on the last play in locker room and has to be separated, the source says.

It's clear he will never learn, although I agree the last play was stupid a rookie should never be calling out a coach

Again!? Seriously wtf is wrong with this guy? He did this in college and this is like what, the third time he got suspanded by his own team in the NBA now?

Funny how the NBA questioned the high school kids joining the NBA's maturity when we got a lot more guys coming out of college that either demand to join a certain team in the draft or constantly pick fights with either the other team or their own.

Have you seen the numbers he's been putting up lately? He's just frustrated with losing. His team is 12-38 and has half of those losses are because of blown 4th quarter leads. The coaching is either awful for the players aren't listening. Either way, changes in the coaching staff need to be made. Because they are either ******** or they have lost the team.

yeah, he's been beasting. and the coaching is terrible, by all accounts. still doesn't mean threatening to shank donte greene or whatever he did is the answer.

Reke scored a few late buckets and that 3 was a millimeter off the mark. I think it was a great shot and they obviously decided to go for the W instead of a tying 2 so why would Cousins complain about Reke shooting a 3? Did he want to shoot it instead? i think it was a great look and it was real close.

Whenever Demarcus does something, it gets blown out of proportion because of his reputation. He plays with a lot of passion and emotion. Does he let his emotions get the best of him at times? Of course. But to say this guy is a waste of talent and will never learn is just exaggeration. He's just frustrated with his team losing a bunch of games. He's never lost before and has always played on good teams, so he's frustrated with all the losses. He does however need to handle this more professionally, but I'll give him a pass since he's a 20 year old rookie.

You'd hate to have a player like that on your pick-up YMCA team then huh? I played college ball at SF State and we went through a season where we lost 4 straight league games. It got very frustrating and sometimes emotions got the best of some players at times. But we learned from mistakes and bounced back. That was just 4 games. Hard to imagine how frustrating it is for a competitor like Cousins when Sac's dropped 38 games. Give him some time to mature, he's only 20 or so and he's not used to losing like this. Tyreke Evans got into it with the coaching staff earlier this week and Carl Landry also had his moment a couple weeks ago. It's very frustrating losing like that. But of course when Cousins does it, hell breaks loose on ESPN. It's a shame.

Some guys take awhile to mature. Maybe he has anger issues. Hopefully he can figure it out and channel that anger into his game. Play mad but controlled and he can become a damn good player.

Cousins is a moron. He needs to learn how to handle his emotions better than he does. That said, if he had a real coach to put him in his place, perhaps he'd grow up. The Kings need a new head coach and perhaps a shrink. I think this kid will be fine, he is only 20.

Demarcus needs a coach and staff that can control him that he respects, he needs veterans on his team. Lakers have controled Artest. Cousins needs veterans to sit him down and talk and guys he respects.

Hawkeye15
02-13-2011, 12:21 PM
the only thing that can derail Cousin's career is himself. I hope he learns to better channel his frustrations. He is very talented, and could be a beast. But coming into a team lead by Westphal, with all the losing, is not ideal for a young player who struggles with emotions. Hopefully Sac makes some changes in the coaching staff in the offseason, and Cousins works on his maturity.

I would hate to see this kid waste his talent. But there is indeed a reason he fell in the draft.

I don't watch a lot of Sac games, so tell me a couple of things. Isn't Tyreke supposed to be the man in Sacramento? And should they have gone for the 2, instead of the 3 and the win, is there any confidence that they would have won in overtime?

He's a solid player dude, but like I've been saying, the kid is a g'damn cancer. Smart players (especially g'damn rookies) don't outwardly QUESTION what's going on with the team to the point of suspension (especially a team that had no chance at the playoffs to begin with). It would be different if he was a hard working seasoned vet with some leverage, but the kid - by all accounts - is just a loud mouthed idiot. Good for the Kings in suspending him. Maybe he'll learn something, though I doubt it.

Don't worry the suspension will be good for him. It will give him more time to sit around and eat. Maybe he will do some shopping at Casual Male and move even closer to his destiny: The next Eddy Curry.... which is what I was saying since before the draft. Monroe is looking real good right now.

if he were on a team like Boston, his bad boy attitude would be accepted and liked. I think the reason why his attitude is a problem is because he is a rookie. By season 4 or 5 when he is averaging 20 and 10, he will be considered passionate instead of idiotic.

All of you are overreacting more than he does. The kid is 20 years old averaging 14 and 8. Once they get some talent in Sacramento with a better coach he will be fine. And by the way, Eddy Curry averaged 6 and 4 as a rookie and 10 and 4 in his second year. Those comparisons can just stop now. Evans and Cousins is a sick foundation in Sacramento.

You must not have read the article about the altercation. He didnt swing on his team mate as you ignorantly stated, they got into an verbal altercation and had to be seperrated. Basically it was a shouting match.

cousins is a kid who had attitude and anger problems at UK. everyone knew what they were getting if they drafted this kid. hes become a multi-millionaire by the time he was 19 years old, which just fed his ego even more. i think that if he realizes how much potential he really has if he can get his attitude straight, he can be a great center in this league

I didn't say **** about Monroe did I? The twitter account things I read on YOUR forum said he and Greene came to blows before the altercation was over. I do think Greg Monroe will have a better career due to his intelligence and Cousins instability, and I've never hidden that fact.

Pistons have lost many a close game, games we've been up by 20. No one in our locker room has swung on other players. Voicing concerns is one thing, physically fighting is worse. Cousins wasn't even open on the shot, he had no right to ***** about the judgment.

Evans hit a serious sophomore slump and Cousins is a headcase who deserved to go where he went based on potential. Kings have some serious young talent, but you need vets to help manage them. Where were you when I was discussing Prince/Rip trades to bring veteran leadership to the Kings?
