Matt Barnes And DeMarcus Cousins Sued for Assault In Federal Court

On Wednesday, Sacramento Kings players Matt Barnes and DeMarcus Cousins were sued by Jasmine Besiso and Myrone Powell, who claim they were assaulted in a New York nightclub following a game between the Kings and Knicks. Besiso claims Barnes approached her in the VIP section of the club, grabbed her by neck and began choking her. She says he then elbowed her in the face, knocking her unconscious. Powell claims he tried to help Besiso when DeMarcus cousins punched him, and the two players tackled him to the floor, pelting him with kicks and punches. Matt Barnes, dubbed the "bad boy" of the NBA, spoke out saying that there are "2 sides to every story." Which side do you believe? Sound off in the comments below.
