DeMarcus Cousins' reputation precedes him.
He's known to be volatile on the court, and picks up a lot of technical fouls. So, it shouldn't come as a surprise that bets were placed on when Cousins would pick up his first technical foul in a Warriors uniform.
It might be surprising, though, that it was coach Steve Kerr placing the bet.
"Yeah, I lost a bet," Kerr said Friday on KNBR 680. "I had Game 2 as his first technical. But it took three games."
While Cousins was in foul trouble during his first two games with the Warriors, he managed to avoid picking up a technical against the Clippers and the Lakers. That changed Thursday against the Wizards, when Cousins got tangled up with Washington center Thomas Bryant early in the second quarter. Cousins shoved Bryant as they untangled themselves, and he was hit with his first on-court technical foul as a member of the Warriors.
Kerr went on to evaluate what he's seen from Cousins so far.
