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. The guy is so immature that not only is he not admitting he did something wrong, but he’s also disputing what the entire sports world saw on video. “In slow motion it looks like I did 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.” Well, yeah, you punched the dude in the groin. I’m not sure how else we should interpret it. Cousins was suspended for Wednesday’s game without pay for the groin punch. Let’s just hope he learned more during his time off than Rajon Rondo did.
