Golden State Warriors center DeMarcus Cousins told Chris Haynes of Yahoo Sports on the Posted Up podcast that NBA fans have hurled racial slurs at him during games: 

“Oh, I’ve been called n—-r. And it’s crazy because this has happened to me on a few occasions. I reported it to the league, and, you know, I may have said whatever I said back and I was still punished for it. But obviously it became a bigger issue when it was Russ [Westbrook], and he was still fined for it. I don’t really understand it. We’re the product. We push this league, so I don’t understand. When does our safety, when does it become important?”
