Sacktown got a Sackfull in Cousins

Demarcus Cousins compared to Derrick Coleman? Rasheed Wallace?  I don't think so...

sure, his attitude is unconventional, and he has been involved in a few on-court altercations, giving him a reputation as a troublemaker. being beat on cursed at trash talked and badgered by lesser men will annoy any beast. but, with his size when he dishes back it out, people take notice. and some cry foul.

but sacramento fans, make no mistake, big cuz does not seek out trouble, unlike those he's been compared to. he's a lovable, cuddly bear (no, i haven't). he's happy upbeat and positive, unlike these two sulking, grudge toting maniacs. demarcus just wants to be liked. he has a short irate temper unsuited for brand image makers, but not unchangeable like those he's been compared with.

like many of us were in high school, he's overly competitive and sensitive to name-calling and trash talking, hackers and arm-hangers. he can dish it out too. and he can back it up. but in the politically correct NBA where image is god there's no place for a guy who elbows in retaliation or whacks a player who needs whacking. NBA players are paid to look away, smile and play to win, but not at all costs. jordan, bird, and others have had notorius tempers and lived to regret a few moments too. but they had over-the-top talent.

talent? demarcus? oh my. OH mY! no other player in the league or draft could have stopped the likes of gasol or even howard dpwn low. demarcus could have. demarcus will. he plays to win and plays harder than anyone else on the floor. he has a will to win and given the ball he will find a way. he passes unselfishly and gives credit to his teamates. he's a team player. he owns the best hands i've seen since mike jordan. rebounds like rodman. no, rodman on steroids. shoot like bird? No. but he can shoot.

the kings, with one pick will  play (next year) later into the playoffs than ever before: but with one caveat. if big cuz is mentored. demarcus needs a mentor, someone who can warn and guide him and help him hang on to his millions, while sorting out the assorted thugs, punks and thieves who prey on open minded NAIVE rookies like demarcus cousins is sure to be. no, is.

sacktown just got a sackfull!
