Cousins originally shared his side of the story with Chris Haynes of Yahoo Sports.

“I was told by league sources that the incident occurred while the Warriors were in Boston – January 26th, that game. During that game, there was a fan who muttered the n-word at DeMarcus Cousins. And I was told DeMarcus informed one of the team’s security guys, and they got a hold of the security team there at TD Garden. They took care of the fan. But I was told that ultimately that that fan was banned for the rest of this season and next year”
