Demarcus Cousins left off team plane to Phoenix
DeMarcus Cousins is one crazy dude. There was a reason why NBA teams were too scared to draft him. The kid has some definite maturity issues. Donte Greene inbounded the ball to Tyreke Evans for a game-winning 3 pointer instead of passing to DeMarcus, and Cousins was not having it.
After the buzzer, Cousins ran the length of the floor, passing Evans and Greene on his way to the locker room, where Cousins and Greene reportedly had to be separated after exchanging blows.
Kings president Geoff Petrie made the decision to remove Cousins from the plane, according to sources.
This isn’t the first time DeMarcus Cousins let his swag get the best of him. He was fined $5,000 in October for an issue with strength and conditioning Coach Daniel Shapiro. In late November, Cousins was kicked out of practice by Kings Head coach Paul Westphal after the two exchanged words. And on Dec. 23, he made a choking gesture to Reggie Williams while he was at the free throw line, leading Westphal to temporarily remove him from the starting lineup.
Hey at least he can do the dougie.
