New Orleans Pelicans forward DeMarcus Cousins is no stranger to controversy or fines in the NBA.
Just last season the vet who was still with the Kings at the time, was suspended by the NBA after picking up his 16th technical foul, marking the earliest a player has ever been suspended for exceeding the amount of technical fouls allowed over the course of a season.
While he didn’t get a technical this past weekend he did get fined for cursing out a fan. Cousins has been fined $25,000 for directing inappropriate language towards a fan.
The incident occurred with 0:50 remaining in the 4th quarter of the Pelicans’ 103-91 loss to the Memphis Grizzlies on Wednesday, Oct. 18 at FedEx Forum. The Technical Foul which was assessed to Cousins as part of the incident has been rescinded.
