A lot has been made over the Choke-gate incident many of us witnessed Tuesday evening, and I’m not talking about the Kings pant pissing ways.
The Kings organization felt so strongly about Cousins’ mocking of Warrior Reggie Williams that yesterday they decided to fine and bench Cousins until he showed enough “professionalism” to return to the starting lineup. And while I understand their attempt to “teach” Cousins, the whole thing seems incredibly amateurish all around. I mean, this is something you do in a 10-12 year old rec league…not the NBA. Talk to the guy – make him put in extra time at practice – etc, etc, but to harm the team for no good reason over something as simple as a choke gesture? Certainly questionable, in my mind. I’m not saying Cousins was correct in the least bit, but, I’m not saying I’m okay with how the Kings handled it either.
So, what do you think King fans? Did the Kings do the right thing? Did they overreact?
