Cousins Ejected (Again) for Going After 'The King'

Demarcus Cousins and technical fouls go together like peanut butter and jelly.  Unfortunately, for his new employers the Houston Rockets, that means that Cousins is going to get ejected from time to time.  It was just over a week ago when "Boogie" received his first ejection of the season after getting in a shoving match with Willie Cauley-Stein before complaining about a call on the other end that ultimately got him ejected. 

Less than a week later, Cousins is back at it again.  

Sunday night during a 120-102 loss facing his old team - the Lakers, Cousins was his usual abrasive self.  First, he pushed Markieff Morris to the floor:

Moments later, the big man made an errant swipe at LeBron that resulted in another flagrant foul and - you guessed it - another ejection.

While Cousins has been showing more restraint than in the past, you can't go around shoving players left and right and not expect to pick up a technical foul.  As a highly emotional player, Cousins has little room for error when it comes to his outbursts and is much more helpful to his team on the court rather than off of it.  Here's hoping that Cousins can keep his emotions in check and get back to being the triple-double threat that he used to be.  

In the meantime, here's a highlight of some of Cousins' best freakouts:
