DeMarcus Cousins and O.J. Mayo are in a little bit of a beef right now. Matters began when Cousins punched Mayo in the groin during Monday’s Kings-Mavericks game. Mayo said after the game that the Sacramento center “has mental issues.” He also said Cousins’ immaturity was keeping him from becoming a franchise player.
Cousins heard Mayo’s remarks, and he fired back at the Dallas guard.
“This coming from a guy that doesn’t have a great image himself,” Cousins responded, via The Sacramento Bee. “So what does his really mean? I’m fine with it.”
Mayo’s image includes allegedly accepting cash payments while at USC, a marijuana issue before college, fighting with a teammate on a team flight, and being suspended for a positive steroid test.
Cousins may not like the source of the comments, but it’s hard to dispute what Mayo said.
“Is he a franchise player?” Cousins said. “So how is he going to tell me what I am.”
Again, another comment from Cousins that supports what Mayo is saying.
