Everyone, including DeMarcus Cousins, should have known this was coming.

Cousins criticized the officials, saying they and the league plays favorites with Griffin, and the league doesn’t like it when players suggest the league plays favorites. Of course we all know that doesn’t happen (*cough*).

Cousins was fined $25,000 by the league for his comments ciriticising officicals.

He said that the league “babies” Griffin because he sells tickets. Griffin does get away with fouls.

The Kings and Clippers play again Saturday night. That should be entertaining.
