DeMarcus Cousins is arguably one to the most talented power forwards in the NBA, but his stellar play on the court is often overshadowed by his bad attitude.

During halftime of the Sacramento Kings’ 97-85 loss to the Los Angeles Clippers, Cousins got into a altercation with head coach Keith Smart.

Cousins did not return to the game, spending the rest of his night in the team’s locker room.

This altercation was not ignored and Cousins punishment has set.

According to Marc J. Spears of Yahoo Sports!,

Kings GM Geoff Petrie suspends center DeMarcus Cousins indefinitely for conduct detrimental to the team and unprofessional behavior.

Sure this is a huge blow to the 8-18 Sacramento Kings, but Cousins, 22, has to develop into a professional.

Is Cousins, who averages  16.6 points and 9.5 rebounds per game this season truly worth the reward of dealing with is horrible temperament?

Cousins has All-Star talent, but it looks like Kings are starting to lose patience.
