DeMarcus Cousins Calls Blake Griffin ‘Actor,’ Gets Hit With $25,000 Fine

DeMarcus Cousins Calls Blake Griffin 'Actor,' Gets Hit With $25,000 FineDeMarcus Cousins really needs to start watching what he says to the media.

The Sacramento Kings forward talked to the media after his physical matchup aginst Los Angeles Clippers forward Blake Griffin on Thursday. He addressed the fact that Griffin didn't talk about their antics on the court, but Cousins wanted to inform the media on the issue at hand, according to ESPN.

"Of course that's what Blake is going to say because he's in L.A., where actors belong," said Cousins. "He's an actor, so of course he would say that."

After fouling out, with only 18 minutes under his belt, Cousins was not too happy with the officiating of the game either.

"If they're going to let it be physical, it's usually physical on both ends," Cosuins told the reporters in Sacramento. "You saw the game, so I don't really have to say much."

With four fouls on him, Cosuins was called for his fifth foul on a play where he implies that Griffin was just faking the contact. There was about a minute left in the game at this point.

"I guess the wind from my hand hit him in the eye and I guess he got fouled by the wind," Cousins said about his foul on Griffin. "I'm not sure."

Cousins was then fined $25,000 by the NBA for his criticism of the game officials.
