DeMarcus Cousins has improved a number of areas of his game this year. His relationship with the referees is not one of them.

Sunday night Cousins picked up his 13th technical foul of the season, when he went face to face with Bismack Biyombo and they got called for double technical. Cousin’s reaction to have 13, according to the Sacramento Bee:

“I wasn’t trying to get a tech but that’s part of being DeMarcus Cousins,” he said.

Thirteen is the magic number this season, the limit at which players are suspended for one game.

It is likely that he appealed the final technical but unless the league rescinds it Cousins will sit out Tuesday night against Oklahoma City. The Kings would miss Cousins as he has evolved into their best player — he had 29 and 10 against the Bobcats. Sure, it’s the Bobcats but those are still good numbers. He is their focal point.

We can expect the formal announcement Tuesday.

    Cousins’ game is actually pretty nice… he’ll develop in to a real good player within a few more years. Reminds me of Bynum: tons of talent just needs a little maturation and he’ll be set up perfectly to be a long-lasting figure in the NBA.

    “Part of being Demarcus Cousins?” Being an a**?

    Just apart of being Crybaby Cousins

    Once I heard him speak of himself in the 3rd person I knew everything else was pointless to read.
