DeMarcus Cousins is getting good at this whole apologizing thing. 

During the Sacramento Kings' beatdown at the hands of the Houston Rockets, Boogie was called for a questionable foul against Dwight Howard. He complained in the aftermath, then received his first technical. 

As you can see below, he wasn't done yet, continuing to shout at the referees until he was restrained and ejected with a second tech: 

Fortunately, he's holding himself accountable for his actions: 

The apology is nice, but it would be even nicer if Cousins could stop having to apologize for his actions. He's done a better job staying focused and on the court during the 2013-14 season, but the misbehavior still pops up with a bit too much frequency. 

One thing is wrong about the sentiment, though. 

Seeing as the Kings were down 19 points in the third quarter when Cousins fouled D12, I'm not entirely sure he let down his team by getting thrown out.
