In November, DeMarcus Cousins let his emotions get the best of him and he confronted a TV analyst after a game. He was suspended for two games. Cousins' attitude has gotten him in trouble with everyone from color commentators to opponents, but during last night's contest against the Los Angeles Clippers, his argument with Kings head coach Keith Smart was the straw that broke the camel's back.
Cousins was benched for the entire second half because of his actions and today, after receiving his indefinite suspension, the 22-year-old apologized with the following statement:
“What happens in the locker room stays in the locker room but I was wrong. But what happens in the locker room stays in the locker room.”
“Don’t talk back. That’s the thing. I shouldn’t have responded back. Should have accepted what was said and stayed quiet. I messed up. I’m apologizing to all my teammates for it, for responding the way I did, and we’ll move on from it…I grow from all of my mistakes.”
