Demarcus Cousins has got to be the biggest statpadding cancer I've seen in the league in a number of years.
i agree. The nuggets were scoring in the paint at will. Lol. And in the perimeter too but cousins just stood there. Iím sure heís a very coachable guy. Haha

1. The constant sooking and look on his face. Today was no different. It can't be fun to be his teammate.

2. Turns into the slowest man on earth when running back on defense if he doesn't get a foul call he wants. Sometimes just randomly falls over behind the baseline to accentuate how little he wants to get back.

3. The pointless foul trouble and technicals. Today was no different. Almost tried to get himself in foul trouble a second time when davis left the game.

4. The pathetic effort on defense when he knows the game is lost. Great example to set as a leader.

5. When he was on the bench after the first foul trouble, Holiday scores a bucket to cut the lead to single figures. His whole team goes up on the bench, except for cousins who just sits there sulking.

Get the **** off my TV screen already. So glad the celtics didnt get sucked in to trading for that moron.

what are your thoughts on fans on this board who always ask to trade all our assets for cousins? I think it needs to end he's overrated

My opinion hasnt changed on Cousins for years.

I don't think New Orleans got the bargain that everyone thought they did and they should trade him now for whatever the best package is that they can get.

I dont see the point of allocating so much of the basketball and running so much offense through a center that is shooting well below average for his position, and doesn't get the ball moving. Everyone froths over the massive statlines and getting the guy to do half the work but having him doing it isn't actually good for the team's efficiency.

When he and Davis aren't there to run everything, of course the rest of the team is going to be a disaster. They never get a chance to get many touches of the basketball. This leaves cousins with amazing on/off splits because whenever he and Davis are out of the game, there is no system.

In terms of Davis vs Cousins, its not even a contest for who is the better piece, and I dont believe they have a good shot of working together at all.

New Orleans are 8-7 and their wins have come against powerhouses like Atlanta, Indiana, Chicago, Dallas, Sacramento, and the Lakers. When their schedule actually gets a little hard, wait for demarcus and co to melt like he always does.

I soured in DMC when he got traded. It really made me question what people in the know really knew about him. For him to get traded for what many perceived as pennies on the dollar, his value was clearly lower than us fans expected.

If the guy was such a hot commodity, teams would have been throwing big offers out there for him, including and probably especially Danny. Since he couldíve blasted the Pelicans offer out of the water, I trust he didnít for a reason. And nothing DMC/NOP has done since the trade has changed my opinion.

Do we really need to have the same conversation about DMC twice per each of the last 5 seasons?
Good thing is that Boogie is a big factor in the future "ADrama".
I hope Davis will be well. These head injuries should not be taken lightly. He has to live some healthy 50 years after his playing days.

Davis gets 3rd career concussion

Man, the guy is just injury-prone it seems.

With the way Tatum and Brown are playing, I think we should just be wise enough to trek on and just bring back a healthy Hayward next year, and HOPEFULLY another Top-5 pick.

Matching salaries or close to it will be difficult anyways with AD.

I originally thought it, but now I'm starting to think the guy is just way too injury-prone.

Plus, Tatum and Brown look great so far, though I'd still trade Jaylen+ for Davis if the offer was made (and keep Tatum), but yeah I wouldn't give up both in a deal.

But again, he's proving to be injury prone.
