DeMarcus Cousins can't control himself while praising new Kings guard Ty Lawson

Sacramento Kings center DeMarcus Cousins has never been one to hold his tongue when it comes to talking about (or to) somebody. It's led to technical fouls with referees, and it's gotten him into some hot water with players, announcers and coaches. However, it's not always a bad thing. It can be endearing and his candor can be much appreciated.

For example, Cousins was asked about new Kings point guard Ty Lawson after a recent practice and his answer was entirely complimentary about Lawson's infamous speed and quickness. It was also not suitable for television because as Cousins admits, he forgot the environment of the conversation for a minute.
