07:31 AM ET 01.03 | DeMarcus Cousins was at it again Thursday, picking up his 10th technical foul of the season for shoving Philadelphia forward Evan Turner during the Kings' 113-104 loss. Cousins would be suspended one game if he is called for a 16th technical foul. Players are suspended by the league for every other technical foul after their 16th. Cousins has needed the NBA to rescind technical fouls in each of the last two seasons to avoid a suspension. "Obviously it's concerning," said Kings coach Michael Malone. "We hope he doesn't get to the limit where he's suspended but that's something we continue to talk about. And he's got to be able to harness his emotion and use it in a positive way and not allow it to get to that point because he's too important to this team. He knows that because we can't have him getting techs."

How could you not make any news of the Knicks 1 game winning streak? Beating SA with lots of luck... hahaha

alot of guys pick up tecs, then as they get close they simmer down
- that being said- not sure if this is DMC's plan

Winning and playing good cures all for him. He stunk it up and they were losing.

DMC was just drafted by the wrong team at the wrong time. He needed a stable team with some veteran leaders. There is no one, roster or coaching, that he respects enough to "possibly" listen to.

He is just a bad boy and that is his schtick. You think teams goat BG into getting T'd, then DMC is the Jedi Master of it.

Oh well, I really enjoy watching Kings games b/c you never know when you are going to see a Boogie Bomb go off.......

Cousins is a good talent but he just can't get right he needs a therapist some Phill Jackson zen techniques, something is just wrong in his medula oblongata lol. Now that he got his money you can't tell him nothing though. This is guy I wanted the Sixers to draft but I understand why they passed on him. They were scared some off the court issue would come.

Maybe getting suspended for techs would be a good thing for him. Then he would sit and watch his team play without him and fans would be upset with him. That could be what finally gets through to him. Rescinding techs to protect him is only delaying the inevitable. Let him sit and think.

Oh yeah I watched the game last night. Don't think the Bama faithful thought their season would end w/ back to back losses. And OSU, since their D sucks not sure if they get blown out tonight or it's a shoot out.


GO BUCKS!
