Kings center DeMarcus Cousins is now taking his infamous volatility to the team's broadcasters. After Tuesday night's home victory over the Clippers, Cousins ran over to the announce table and appeared to say something to Kings play by play man Grant Napear, pounding his fist on the desk.

Cousins' issues with Napear apparently stems from criticism on the play by play man's local sports talk radio show (which is an interesting spot for Napear as he has to balance being the voice of the team and being more objective on talk radio). The gist of the conversation from both Cousins and Napear are that Cousins said something along the lines of "that'll give you something to talk about." It didn't look particularly pleasant and Napear said on Twitter he didn't want to make a mountain out of a molehill.
What makes this exchange even weirder is that Cousins was last seen kissing a member of the Kings booth, analyst Jerry Reynolds. Happier times less than a month ago…
I've always tried to have a glass half-full attitude with Cousins, but at what point is enough going to be enough? Forget the laundry list of controversy that has followed him at every step – what about his confrontations with solely announcers! First it was a suspension for his confrontation with Sean Elliott of the Spurs and now he's getting into it with his own play by play man! Is there anybody left for DeMarcus Cousins to argue with? If TNT ever does a Kings game, Marv Albert better watch his back.
