DeMarcus Cousins is a child. He is a child as much as he is a knucklehead. He is a knucklehead as much as he is a pain in the ass. He is a pain in the ass as much as he is a legit NBA talent. He is a legit NBA talent as much as he is a giant head case. He is a giant head case as much as he is still a child. Thus, we have the complex inner workings of DeMarcus Cousins.
We know this after one full season in the NBA. We knew this while he was at Kentucky. We knew this when he was in high school. And it seems to be a safe bet that people knew this during his AAU and grade school days.
Someone with a temper, oft never loses such aggression and anger. Someone with a “what about me” attitude, oft never loses such self-destroying thoughts. That is, until they meet their match. The one person that challenges them all the while getting the most from them
Nothing has changed in Sacramento for Cousins, and it will more than likely never change in Sacramento for Cousins.
But that’s not to say it won’t change elsewhere. That’s not to say it can’t change in Philly. That’s not to say Doug Collins can’t be the man that gets through to Cousins (as uneasy as that may be).
