I can see that happening but thinking of him compared to DMC, you can see how DMC was shooting himself in the foot with his body language. I was thinking about this recently. The main issue was that he was constantly humiliating the refs with his antics. At a certain point, it's just basic human respect that you don't do that. The constant head rolls. The constant eye rolls. No other player does that as much as DMC. It wasn't the big flare ups, per se. It was the incessant little humiliations he kept sending the refs way. At a certain point it is just too much negativity, and it does bring the team down, no matter how great a guy you are in every other aspect of your life both on and off the court. This was a personal hurdle with authority figures that he has not overcome yet, and apparently wasn't willing to. Sorry, didn't mean to make this all about DMC, but seeing Papa out there, you just know that none of that will ever happen, even if he gets a little swagger. That is not a small thing. This was my epiphany about Cousins: You can't expect to be successful in this league if you are constantly humiliating the refs publicly.
