15. DeMarcus Cousins
God, it’s me, Bryce, quick question, why does DeMarcus Cousins have to play for the Sacramento Kings?
I hate when great young players get stuck on crappy teams for their first few years in the league, and then it takes them years into their prime to find another team and figure out how to win because of the league’s contract rules.
Please, get Cousins off this terrible team!
Cousins is one of the best young players in the NBA and was one of the “snubs” of the All-Star game. Cousins has only played in 32 of the Kings 44 games, so it’s understandable why he was left out of the All-Star game. It still doesn’t feel like an All-Star game with one of the league’s best emerging stars, but that’s the NBA for you.
In his last four games, Cousins is averaging 22.8 points and 12.0 rebounds. Unfortunately, Cousins is also shooting below 45 percent over that stretch, and the Kings have lost their last seven games.
Cousins can’t do this alone! Some other Kings players need to step up!
