yes ,  we should go after Cousins ...great talent , that Doc/KG can tame.   ;D

If we don't ...as always the LAKERS will ...and they will get him for nothing ..like Metta World moron.

Cousins would run wild with KG there to take off the inside pressure.


We need Smith  or Cousins or Love ....in DA I trust ;)

Cousins might be our best target just because a) the kings might sell him off for cheap since they might be sick of his antics. And b) the kings current front office management doesn't know what the heck they're doing.

And to everyone that thinks his us too much of an immature knucklehead, I think doc, kg, this team and the celtics tradition would turn cousins around. Look at Zachary Randolph's career. One he got under a good system surrounded by good teammates and culture in Memphis did we ever hear any problems? No he turned into 20 and 15 machine. Granted he was a bit older then cousins but I see many comparisons between the two.

Smith is first on my wish list because he would be perfect for this system. But my number two would be cousins because he is a young beast of a center who could really learn from KG and turn into something pretty special for our future.  In three years I could easily dig a rondo,Bradley,green,sully,cousins line up.

On the contrary, I think anybody on that Kings team is potentially up for grabs EXCEPT for DMC.  They fired Westphal last  year rather than consider parting ways with Cousins.  I think they've hitched themselves to that wagon.  Especially when you consider that they declined to extend Tyreke, who previously looked to be their chosen centerpiece.

I thought Jason Thompson was an interesting target this off-season, and I still think that he could be a good fit.  Not sure what it would take to get him, but we could really use a 6'11'' athletic PF/C type to back up KG.

Hopefully he keeps getting in trouble until he's available for The Celtics to grab

The Celtics traded Glen Davis and didn't bring back Delonte West when they probably could have had him for the minimum.

I think they avoid Demarcus Cousins unless he is ridiculously cheap and can be rehabilitated into a trade asset (not a building block).

They traded Davis for Bass. They didn't exactly give him away. They signed West after his legal trouble. They brought in Nate Robinson, Marbury, Sheed, and Cassell. Let's also not forget that even Pietrus wasn't really well thought of in Phoenix.

Don't think Ainge is too afraid to bring in any player.

There seemed to be a conscious effort to clean up the lockerroom in 2011 and go after players who were good citizens while avoiding more talented players who were trouble.

I'd trade for him. Of course, I also don't like Elliot as a broadcaster.

Being fair..There is of course a big difference in a individual being downright "MEAN" as opposed to someone immature and a product of their surroundings.

  I tend to believe Cousins is the latter.

I like a big man who actually cares about things, as p[[psed to the many slugs in the league who get paid and then sleepwalk through their contract.

I'll take DMC on my team any time.  He's one of the most talented bigs in the entire league. I don't think this incident shouldn't have resulted in any suspension, unless DMC put his hands on that punk Sean Eliot, who is a whiny homer.

As long as DMC didn't give Eliot a kidney shot, he shouldn't have been suspended. 

If Sacto wants to give away DMC, I'd give anyone on the Celtics roster for him, save Rondo. He's going to be a franchise big for the next decade, barring injury or league banishment.

In Cousins defense, Sean Elliot is terribly annoying. I've listened to a few of his games and felt like punching him through the tv.
