DeMarcus Cousins has a well-known reputation for being a hothead, and he's spent a lot of time working on maturing as a player. 

During the Sacramento Kings' 114-112 double-overtime win over the Phoenix Suns on Friday night, Cousins took a huge step in the right direction. 

With the game tied at 99 in the final minute of the fourth quarter, Cousins was whistled for an offensive foul—his sixth—forcing him to the bench. 

Cousins showed an amazing amount of restraint after a very questionable foul call, but what was most impressive was how the Kings star corralled head coach Mike Malone as he walked onto the court to give the officials a piece of his mind. 

Keep it up, Boogie!
