Sacramento Kings star big man DeMarcus Cousins is no stranger to the technical foul (or just outbursts in general). But the way he picked up a technical foul on Sunday night against the Golden State Warriors may have been a first.
Boogie was called for his third foul of the first half, and was quite unhappy about it. He then proceeded to give a helpless sideline chair a vicious beating, and earned himself a technical foul (good for his 12th on the season):

Things didn’t get much better for Boogie over the rest of the game, as he committed seven turnovers in the Kings’ 117-106 loss. He also almost had his soul completely destroyed by Kevin Durant on this posterizing dunk attempt in the first quarter:

Boogie — averaging 28.5 points per game — has certainly had better nights.
