DeMarcus Cousins qualified for his third game in the NBA on Monday after missing all of last season with a torn ACL.
The Houston Rockets Center played three minutes in a 113-100 loss to the Dallas Mavericks before being ejected in a renewal of their often controversial relationship with league officials.
Cousins took up their first engineering training early in the second quarter after teaming up with former Kentucky Wildcat Willie Cauley-Stein. He gave Cauley Stein a little nudge too.
Less than three minutes later, Cousins picked up his second tech after protesting a no-call when he was believed to have been fouled on a trip to the basket.
Microphones didn’t understand what cousins were saying. Judging strictly by video, that was a short whistle, especially given that it led to the exclusion of cousins.
Was this a case of officials running longtime beef with cousins, or did the Rockets Center cast a magic word to deserve the automatic T?
According to reigning crew chief John Goble, the cousins’ words weren’t the culprit. It appears that Cousin’s gesture of raising his hands above his head pulled the pipe.
« DeMarcus cousins received a technical foul for an overt gesture directed at an officer who was annoyed about not calling, » Goble told reporters.
Here is the NBA’s “open gesture” stance, citing an air strike as an example of a violation that warrants a technical foul.
« Players can respond to calls they disagree with, provided the response is not overly ostentatious, disrespectful, or lengthy. ”
It’s the same line of reasoning that led to a controversial exclusion of the Dallas Mavericks center Kristaps Porzingis from the NBA bubble. In this case, Porzingis’ « gesture » was the culprit for his first technical foul.
An argument with players from Los Angeles Clippers resulted in his second technical and ejection in that game.
Cousins regularly find themselves in technical fouls among the league leaders and have previously said he believes the officials will bring it out for him.
« I have a tech who says, ‘Nice job, umpire,' » Cousins told The Undefeated in 2017. I said, ‘Nice work. Good call. « And I have a technique? I swear to God by my children. I don’t have a moment when I’m breaking out or leaving. I haven’t had any of these yet, but for some reason I still lead the league of technicians. . . .
“In the past few seasons I have been given a technique to play after the whistle is over. It doesn’t matter now because it is me. ”
Three minutes into his third game on his NBA return, it looks like things are going as usual between cousins and the umpires.
