Sam Amick – Sacramento Kings Suspend DeMarcus Cousins Indefinitely

And it appears last night’s argument with Keith Smart was the straw that broke the camel’s back.

Former Sacramento King’s beat writer Sam Amick broke the news that the Kings had suspended DeMarcus Cousins “indefinitely” due to conduct deemed detrimental to the team:

Sacramento Kings announce they’ve suspended DeMarcus Cousins “indefinitely for unprofessional behavior and conduct detrimental to the team.”

The move is most likely a “teaching” tool given the “indefinite” terminology – but it’s clear the Kings are doing their best to get the message across to Cousins – no more issues.

The constant strain of losing is wearing on everybody, players to fans and the lack of desire to put forth any effort to win by the front office and ownership has turned a once proud organization into a laughing stock.

As embarrassed as fans are with Cousins (and rightfully so), they should be equally as embarrassed – if not more, by the team we all love. What a mess they’ve turned themselves into – all self inflicted.
