07:58 AM ET 03.06 | Apart from his blocked shots, DeMarcus Cousins had a tough night both on and off the floor Tuesday. [Cousins] finished with eight points, 13 rebounds and a career-high five blocked shots. ... Cousins sat out the final 10:15, and his exit wasn't the usual jog to the bench. He engaged in a shouting match with fans seated on the baseline near the Kings' bench. "He said some disrespectful things, and I had some things to say back," Cousins said. "That was it." Cousins said he believes it was a Kings fan, "which makes it even worse." Smart said sitting Cousins had nothing to do with that verbal exchange and instead was about finding the best matchup to slow down the Nuggets (40-22).

Howard, Bynum, Cousins. Not the year of the Big Man in the NBA is it?

I remember when Bigs made this game exciting. Now they're more like a Madonna video. Bunch of Divas...

Sacramento has a bunch of great players/talents but they need to be on different teams.

Evans - Bulls
Cousins - Boston
Fredette - No idea
Isiah Thomas - No idea
Salmons - Good player for a playoff team
Thornton - Denver 3 point shooting
Thompson - Clippers

Hes very talented but the guy is a mental midget. If he cant handle the pressure on a mediocre team in a small market, can you imagine what type of headache he would be in a city with a huge negative media and fanbase? He needs to stay in a city like Sacramento.

I know, the weird thing is that didn't seem to be any trouble the year in Kentucky. Maybe Coach Cal knew how to handle his temper. Maybe Smart should make a call to Coach Cal for any suggestions.

He has always been big time trouble...Kentucky suffered from his BS also.
He has talent,and that his the straw that keeps him thinking bad behavior
is no big deal.Look,he is just plain immature.

Sad thing,his mentality does not see maturity until his physical ability starts to wane.

Me thinks the Bulls would probably pass on Tyreke at this point. They'd probably take Jimmer Fredette over him.

Cousins would be a great pickup for Boston.
