Nene, Marc Gasol and Marcin Gortat. Cousins turned those three centers into toast during the holiday weekend, scoring 69 points on 46 shots. And he did it in every way possible. Smash-and-grab buckets in the paint. Sweet post moves. Soft midrange jumpers. He also collected 32 boards (including 16 against Memphis) in those contests. It's possible that for the first time this season, Cousins' teammates realized he's their best talent, and it could mean more late-game touches for the big rookie. In fact, in the Kings' comeback win over Phoenix, Cousins poured in 13 points in the fourth quarter while Tyreke Evans watched from the bench. One thing is certain: Cousins has put together far more good games than bad ones during the past five weeks and is looking like the player we all knew he could be.

David Thorpe has DMC ranked #5 overall amongst rookies
