DeMarcus Cousins suspended one game for Mayo incident

I really wish this post were about mayonnaise and not a crotch shot.

After taking what appeared to be a cheap shot at OJ Mayo’s nether regions in Monday night’s Kings/Mavericks game, DeMarcus Cousins has been suspended for one game without pay. After the game, Mayo had some harsh words for Cousins, calling the former Cat an “immature” but greatly talented player with “mental issues.”

Cousins later said that the incident was accidental and he was actually just trying to knock Mayo’s hand away:

“In slow motion, it looks like I did it on purpose,” Cousins said. “But you look in real speed, you see what happened. Of course it’s gonna get thrown out there that I did it on purpose.”

Judge for yourself:

    Cuz is a liar. Cal was the best thing that happened to him. Watch him implode.

    I think Cal’s noticeable white hair starting to appear came quickly to fruit with this year’s team -but it was sprouted roots the year Cuz was here.

    Wah!! Mayo is a little crybaby! Wasn’t much of a nut shot! Mayo didn’t even react to it! Everybody needs to leave Cuz alone! Analyzing everything the man does! Bet he does more good in the world than bad, but good doesn’t make the headlines!

    Grow Up Cousins, I love Kentucky and support there players (both former & Current). But that is clearly pre meditated. Cmon Man! Go Big Blue

    I think DIrk Diggler is attempting to communicate with us. It appears to be some sort of bastardized English.

    He is costing himself money. No Team is gonna pay him big money now without the ability to immediately terminate his contract for these types of things.

    Biggest boogie fan in the world. Hes lying, thats a clear sack tap and any man whos ever had d-bag friends know for a fact thats a sack tap. Grow the hell up kid. Sack taps are only funny/acceptable after 1 am when youre drunk with friends.

    WTF? What next. Cuz gets suspended for not having his nails trimmed short enough! Total BS.

    Looks like a reach around by Mayo to start all the trouble.

    F oj. He’s the little b!tch. Bet he wouldn’t be acting that way if him and Cuz were along on a dark street…

    ALL these nba guys wanna act all bad, yet most couldn’t fight their way out of a wet paper bag. Cuz is different, he doesn’t give a damn what everyone thinks of him. Kinda refreshing, if you ask me. He doesn’t want to be your role model OR your kid’s role model.

    that was a dinger. can’t deny it. I love big cuz but that was obvious. Mayo prolly deserved it but it was not the correct response. He should learn to let his play for the team do his “paybacks.” Everyone makes mistakes but everyone big cuz makes is gonna get blew up. He needs to realize this and stop giving haters ammo. GBB!!!!!

    Boys it’s time to face the facts that Cousins is a pure and simple idiot.

    That was obviously on purpose. Come on DMC, just get guys back by stuffing the stats sheet.

    #18) is 120% correct. Big Cuz is going to get a rep like Rodman did if he doesn’t grow up. The other players are trash talking him now to get him to react and the refs are going to make it hard on him.

    punk a** move dude…..

    this is the reason the 09 team underperformed…You have Wall, Bledsoe, and Cousins and cant win the title. Once a thug, always a thug. hate to say it.

    Demarcus Cousins = Rasheed Wallace 2.0 (without the three point shooting ability)

    While I don’t agree that “sac tapping” oj mayo was the reason the 09 team underpreformed I do agree that looked rather intentional, it almost looked like he was holding ojs other arm so he couldn’t block it or something…. Either way get em boogie, u still the man! I don’t care what he does

    23. From what I recall, 4-20 from three had something to do with it.

    If this kid went to a rival school, every hayseed on this site would be yelling from their holler that he is a thug. Just look at his picture. Anyone with a pic like that, you know he is an a hole.

    Tremendous talent, but an immature idiot. Love him to death, but come on man. As if the full on shove at the beginning of the play wasn’t enough you gotta go sack tap, a sorry chump like Mayo, dude you are better than him any damn way!

    He will one day trade in his uniform for an orange, prison jumpsuit.

    wish Shaq would sit DC down for a lesson in surviving the nba. he had players all over him every game and got no protection from the refs, but he kept his cool (usually). you don’t help your team or family or your team by getting suspended. come on, DC, you’re better than that.

    It was intentional but players go after each others’ junk all the time. It just magnified because it’s Boogie.

    All sound and fury; signifying nothing. If a close up was unavailable I wouldn’t have seen anything but the pushing. Demarcus, you shouldn’t have done it but that’s about the weakest 1 game suspension I have ever seen. With what else goes on in NBA, I think this is ridiculous.
