08:09 AM ET 03.13 | The latest transgression, elbowing Bucks forward Mike Dunleavy in the back of the head, something he says was unintentional, earned him a fourth ejection of the season. What do you do with DeMarcus Cousins? Seriously. What do you do with DeMarcus Cousins? If he were a toddler, you would send him to timeout. If he were a middle schooler, you would take away his Xbox. ... He has an infant of his own, for crying out loud. Yet his inability to control his impulses -- primarily his anger -- is dominating his otherwise productive third season, eroding relationships with teammates, alienating the league's entire officiating crew, and frustrating, infuriating and confounding his coaches and Kings officials alike.

Demote him to the D League.

I think he could do well in a different environment.
Other troublesome players have, it just takes the right group to deal with him.

True.

But he is better then an underachieving, lethargic PF with too much gel in his hair chucking threes all night, no?
