The relevant portion when it comes to Mr. Cousins (I trimmed this down due to Fair Use concerns, but TZ, etc...if you feel there's too much here, go ahead and delete) : "Another major red flag is lack of conditioning during the draft process...Teams figure that if a player is not going to take the time and energy to get his body right before the all-important pre-draft process, how will he be able to manage doing it during the far more distracting and busy NBA season? ... The weight/conditioning/strength issue is part of a bigger picture, called attitude and work ethic. When teams see ripped muscles, low body fat and strong lungs in their private workouts, they can take comfort in the idea that the players who exhibit those characteristics are either not afraid of real work or are guys that love to improve their body and game. The opposite suggests a player who will be the type of guy who is "last one in the gym, first one out." ... In this draft, DeMarcus Cousins is flying this particular red flag, thanks to his high body fat percentage in the Chicago pre-draft camp and his less-than solid performances in individual workouts. His conditioning is a major question. And as with other on-court issues, it's enough to make teams think twice before taking him."
