07:26 AM ET 11.29 | DeMarcus Cousins paints the treatment in a positive light -- taking it as a compliment when opponents try to get in his head. The Kings host the Los Angeles Clippers [Friday], followed by games against the Warriors on Sunday and the Oklahoma City Thunder on Tuesday at Sleep Train Arena. Each team features players who have done all they can to play mind games with Cousins and take advantage of his emotions. Sometimes, that means trying to bait Cousins into technical fouls. ... Regardless, the coaching staff keeps an eye on the situation to make sure fouls, technical or otherwise, don't become a problem, as they've been in recent seasons. This season, Cousins has four technical fouls, tied with Golden State's Andrew Bogut, Oklahoma City's Russell Westbrook and Houston's Dwight Howard for most in the NBA.

Poor kid. Not a mental giant is he? That said, looks like a three game skid coming up...

But three wins would be sweet. Hope the Kings pull three upsets out of their hat!

Big baby, Cousins are a shame for the "big men" playing the game. The whine and cry about how life is so unfair to them all the time. On a ThanksGiving week, how about being thankful for just even having a NBA career with the kinda pay just a handful of Americans can have?

Cousins is the problem. He wants to play like Zach Randolph, but Cousins gets angry when the opponents retaliate the same stuff he is dealing out. This guy needs to go the a industrial strength anger-management school.
