Kings make a really nice run to get back into it going into half. Cousins goes to speak to ref as everyone is going into the locker room. 2nd ref comes over (still doesn't seem like a volatile situation at this point), Keith Smart comes over to move DC into locker room, DC says something else and the other ref kicks him out. Probably killed any chance the Kings had to win the game, getting kicked out between halves. Just a first class idiot ---- after all the discussions about maturity and controlling temper he still hasn't a clue.
I'll take him on the Raptors if they want to move him. Would be entertaining to watch and he's an incredible talent (not to mention, he produces a ton as well). Colangelo isn't one to trade for the bad character guys, though, and I don't think going to a place like Toronto would change his attitude at all.
Cousins needs to end up somewhere with a disciplined roster full of veterans and a respected coach if he's ever going to be a good winning piece for somebody, I think. That might be what it needs for him to grow up.
