DeMarcus “Boogie” Cousins went crazy again, as he smashed a chair on the bench in the game against the Golden State Warriors.
Cousins got his third personal foul, four minutes until the end of the first half. The Sacramento Kings’ best player went berzerk, and he couldn’t hide his frustrations, so he focused his anger on the chair.
He first kicked it, and then afterward threw some punches.
After that, he received his tenth technical foul this season. This was his 84th throughout his career, and along with eight ejections, he’s a potential negative record-breaker because he is only 26 years and he has gotten so many sanctions.
DeMarcus Cousins could set, another record, in a much more important category. Allegedly, he was offered a $200 million contract. In spite of his outbursts and temperament, Boogie Cousins is one of the best big players in the league, if not the best. So far this season he has been averaging 28.1 points and 10 rebounds per game, along with almost four assists. He is one of the most influential players in the whole league.
