Sacramento Kings center DeMarcus Cousins is at again.

This time he's picking on a familiar foe.

Following Sacramento's thrashing of Chicago on Monday night, the immature Cousins renewed his rivalry with Bulls forward Mike Dunleavy.

“He’s a clown,” Cousins said after the contest via Cowbell Kingdom. “And he’s scared. I wouldn’t even waste my time if I ever saw him outside of the gym. He’s a clown.”

Dunleavy complained earlier in the game that Cousins tried to injure him on a hard foul.

This isn't the first time the two forwards have had beef. Last March, Cousins elbowed Dunleavy -- then a member of the Milwaukee Bucks -- in the back of the head and was tossed from the game. Cousins argued that he was undercut on the play and thought his elbow on Dunleavy was innocent.

Cousins could play the victim card all he wants, but the numbers don't lie. Since being selected 5th overall in the 2010 NBA Draft, Cousins has ranked in the top-five in technical fouls each season. He had a league-high 17 technical fouls in 2012-13 and once again leads the NBA with an astounding 12 this campaign.

Despite averaging 22.6 points and 11.7 rebounds per game, Cousins was left off the Western Conference All-Star roster.
