It is true. I have drunk deep from the Kool-Aid, and here is what I see: DeMarcus Cousins as the most offensively gifted big man to enter the League since Shaq. A guy who can average 26 ppg and 11.5 rpg. Coupled with Tyreke, who can average 28 ppg and surely figure out how to throw an entry pass to the big man. The two will be the best inside-out combination in the League.
In fact, these guys look so promising together that I can't help but think they knew it all along, and have been laughing to themselves about how DMC was going to fall to #5, was never going to go to Minnie, and was going to team up with 'Reke. In 'Reke, you've got a guy who just went through a long, tough season; who knows what he needs down low; and who can talk candidly about DMC with Calipari, get the scoop on how the guy really is, what his potential is, what his work ethic is like, etc. And 'Reke never had a reservation about wanting DMC on his team. I think that speaks volumes. This guy isn't Big Country Reeves and he isn't Sean May. He is going to come in and kick some butt.
The Kool-Aid's final point to me was that we really just need to sit tight, keep things stable, develop a structure on offense to make the most of DMC, forget about more trades, more tweaks, more changes. Just let these guys play with each other, get stronger, and get better. The future is bright.
