DeMarcus Cousins remains the most talented loose cannon in the NBA. During the third quarter of Sunday’s Kings – Bucks game, Mike Dunleavy Jr. awkwardly tried to box out DeMarcus Cousins. Dunleavy got low and it resulted in himself, Cousins, Drew Gooden and Jason Thompson on the ground. Cousins writhed around in pain before jumping up looking for the culprit. Cousins needed to be escorted back to the bench where he could calm down.
Too bad nobody can tame the beast that is DeMarcus. He continued to stew on the bench during the timeout. When the teams went back to the floor, Cousins went up to Dunleavy to tell him that if anyone was going to end DeMarcus Cousins’ career prematurely, it was would be DeMarcus Cousins. This resulted in a double technical foul. Seconds later the ball was inbounded, Dunleavy and Cousins got “tangled” up and Cousins hit Dunleavy with an elbow in the back of the head. Gate.
The ejection was his league-leading third. At the time of the ejection, Cousins had 24 points on just 12 shots to go along with 10 rebounds. The important thing is that he showed the Bucks how tough he was.
Many minutes after Cousins was ejected, Jimmer Fredette (!) and Cole Aldrich (!?) helped engineer a comeback from 15-points down with 3:47 remaining in the 4th quarter. The final play of the game saw Jimmer intentionally miss a free throw to himself and not get a foul call. Sure, the Kings still lost, but at least Tyreke Evans got a couple extra shots off down the stretch. Free Jimmer!
