In case you didn't know, DeMarcus Cousins and Chris Paul aren't buddies

LOS ANGELES - In some ways DeMarcus Cousins is very old school.

In an era where many players are buddies, Cousins doesn't roll like that.

Specifically, Cousins probably won't be sending Chris Paul a Christmas card next month.

Check out this scene from after the game when Isaiah Thomas tried to shake Paul's hand.

Somewhere, Bill Laimbeer and Rick Mahorn have to be smiling, right?

In the big scheme of things, it's no big deal. And in case you forgot, Cousins and Paul have history.

Last season Paul had one of the best (or worst depending on your view) flops of the season that angered Cousins. The NBA issued a flopping warning on Paul for this beauty.

Then there's the taunting technical foul Cousins received in the first meeting of the season against the Clippers after blocking Paul's shot on Nov. 1.

Paul spent several moments pointing at his temple, mockingly telling Cousins he needed to think better during games.

Paul also refused to address Cousins after that game, preferring to praise Thomas.

Cousins only had 24 points and 10 rebounds that game.

By the way, the Kings host the Clippers next Friday.
