Sacramento Kings center DeMarcus Cousins appeared to push a security guard at Madison Square Garden who accidentally bumped into him during halftime of the Kings/Knicks game.

Cousins finished with 24 points, 20 rebounds, and a pair of blocked shots in the Kings’ win but it was his halftime shove that everyone is talking about afterwards.

Cousins, a two-time All-Star center, has often been at odds with his coach George Karl. Karl suspended Cousins for a game last week for “conduct detrimental to the team,” after the star center directed a tirade at him during a timeout during a home loss to Cleveland.

But Sunday’s outburst was the first directed at a security guard.
